Legendary actor/director/comedian (I could go on...) Mel Brooks has confirmed his plans to produce a sequel to his cult-favorite Star Wars parody, Spaceballs.
At long last, it seems fans can look forward to more zero-G drifting and phallic lightsabers in the near future, after reddit user CallMeObadiah overheard Brooks talking about his exciting intentions on Adam Carolla's subscription-only podcast, 'Take a Knee.'
Keen to cash in on all the recent Star Wars hype, Brooks said:
If I did a movie that came out right after Star Wars comes out, you know, maybe a couple of months later, Spaceballs 2: The Search for More Money, I'd have a big weekend, you know, no matter what, even if it fell on its ass and you know, didn't get that money back.
Perhaps this news won't come as such a shock to some, considering plans for a sequel were unveiled DURING the first movie, after Yoda-stand-in Yogurt says:
God willing, we'll all meet again in Spaceballs 2: The Search for More Money.
It may have taken over 25 years, but finally it looks like it might actually be happening now!
Brooks also commented that he'd love to invite back as many of the original cast members as possible, which included Bill Pullman, Daphne Zuniga, Rick Moranis and of course Brooks himself.
Unfortunately, neither Joan Rivers nor John Candy will be able to reprise their roles, may they rest in peace.
Though it's clearly still in the early planning phases, I desperately hope we'll get to see a new Spaceballs on screens soon! May the Schwartz be with you, Brooks.
