We haven’t talked much about the under-the-radar hockey picture, Goon, since earlier this year, but writer/star Jay Baruchel lit up the Twitterverse today with talk of a sequel.  The original starred Sean William Scott (American Pie) as Doug Glatt, the black sheep of his brainy family who works as a bouncer until an opportunity arises for him to be an enforcer on an underdog semi-pro hockey team. There is no word yet as to the plot of the sequel, but Baruchel will return to write the script with Jesse Chabot, director Michael Dowse will also return to direct the sequel; Evan Goldberg, who co-wrote the original, will return as a producer.  Hit the jump to hear from Baruchel himself.

jay-baruchel-goonCheck out what Baruchel had to say on Twitter, neatly gathered up for you rather than reading it 140 characters at a time:

Jay Baruchel ‏@BaruchelNDG

I’d like to say thank you to all of you for all the GOON 2 love. You guys are wicked.

Though I do feel the need to clarify something from the last article I posted, GOON 2 will be written by @jessechabot and myself.

Evan Goldberg will be involved as a producer and we will all be working our asses off to make as awesome a flick as possible.

Please know this: GOON is pretty close to sacred for all of

us involved and we would only be entertaining the idea of continuing the saga if we were all equally convinced that Doug, Laflamme, Stevesy, the Russians, Rolie, Ogilvy Belchy and Eva were only getting started

We will give them and you guys the epic, violent, heartfelt awesomeness that is not just deserved but required. HIGH. LAND. ERS.

Sorry for the tweet carpet bombing, just wanted to provide context and give appropriate respect to my boy @jessechabot
And YES @mdowse is directing the motherfucker! #gaypornhard
