May the Schwartz be with you…again? According to comments from iconic comedy filmmaker Mel Brooks on Adam Carolla’s podcast, the possibility of filming another Spaceballs is possible. For those familiar with the original 1984 film, the title for the sequel already exists, as Mel Brooks’ character Yogurt says, “God willing, we’ll all meet in again in Space Balls 2: The Search for More Money.”
Some of the more unfortunate setbacks are, of course, the deaths of both John Candy and Joan Rivers. Not to mention, Rick Moranis’ absence from Hollywood for some time now. Though, what could be a better way to come out of retirement than a Spaceballs sequel?
From a financial standpoint, the film’s huge following, tied in with the upcoming reboots of Star Wars, should yield some pretty substantial box-office returns. In fact, Brooks had this to say in regards to a potential sequel, “If I did a movie that came out right after Star Wars comes out, you know, maybe a couple of months later…I’d have a big weekend, you know, no matter what.”
With that strategic timing on a release, Brooks wouldn’t have to look too far for more money.
