There’s a bit of news on the prequel to Chris’ film WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER prequel. Director/writer Michael Showalter had this to say on the film:

Camp Firewood fans, get ready for even more bbq sauce.

Michael Showalter, one of the writers and stars of 2001′s cult favorite Wet Hot American Summer, confirmed in February that a sequel was in the works. Now, in an appearance yesterday on Geeking Out with Kerri Doherty, he teased some details about the new film, Slashfilm reports. Watch the video after the jump.

“It’s six months to a year earlier than when the original movie was, except that the actors playing those characters are 10 years older,” he said.

That would mean that 40-year-old actors are portraying teenaged camp counselors, but who’s counting?

A little background: Wet Hot American Summer was made for a paltry $1.8 million, but when it hit theaters in July 2001, it earned an even paltry-er $300,000. Despite the dismal box office performance (and critical reception), it has since developed a fervent cult following and is considered by many to be an under-appreciated comedy masterpiece. Not to mention several members of its cast — Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Elizabeth Banks, Paul Rudd — have gone on to Hollywood stardom.

What’s even better news for the prequel is that many of the original stars — Rudd, Banks, Christopher Meloni, Janeane Garofalo, and David Hyde Pierce – told EW last year that they’re on board for a second installment.

This film sounds just as nutty as the first did. I’m really looking forward to seeing this. Further updates as they come.

Let’s hope at least that they all show up on time.
