Goon is a great little sports comedy, and if you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend checking it out (it’s currently available on Netflix Instant). For those unfamiliar with the flick, it stars Seann William Scott as a sweet-natured bouncer who becomes a hockey enforcer. Michael Dowse directed from a script by Jay Baruchel (who co-starred in the movie) and Evan Goldberg (This Is the End).
The movie has picked up a cult following, and at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, Steve asked Baruchel about the status of a sequel. Baruchel said they were close to finishing a script, and that if they were able to work out everyone’s schedules, they might get it rolling as early as fall 2014. Steve recently spoke to Goldberg about Goon 2 at the Neighbors junket, and the co-writer was a bit more cautious about the sequel’s immediate future. Hit the jump for more on the Goon sequel:
