Great news for all Wet Hot American Summer fans! It’s been ten years since the cult classic hit the screen and according to indiewire, Director David Wain has confirmed a PREQUEL is in the works.
Jeff Goldsmith at The Q&A podcast interviewed Wain about his plans and celebration of the 10th anniversary:
Wain: Yes, we have been talking about a sequel, prequel, something or other.
Goldsmith: The idea I’ve heard tossed around is that it would be a prequel but when you shoot it they would be 20 years older.
Wain: Well, no that would be absurd. The prequel would be the same summer so they would be 20 years old for the part yeah, but not younger. So it would be 40 year olds playing 16 year olds. And yeah, we’re in the early stages of thinking about that.
Goldsmith: I hope it happens.
Wain: Me too.
Keep your eyes open for tickets on craigslist for the sold-out anniversary celebration at Music Hall of Williamsburg on 7/26.
