CelebNMovies247.com has just learned that director Steve Holland is ready to revisit One Crazy Summer again, get the details on the flip…
Holland has had his ups and downs as a filmmaker, but One Crazy Summer and Better Off Dead are still two of his standouts from the 80s thanks to his collaborative work with John Cusack.
It’s been 20 years since One Crazy Summer and Better Off Dead (1985) hit the big screen. Neither film was a hit at the box-office, but time has been kind to them. Now, Steve Holland wants to revisit some of the characters from One Crazy Summer in a sequel.
CelebNMovies247.com has learned that Holland reflected on his two cult classics, and where his career went after they initially failed to connect with audiences. Both pictures were made by Warner Bros.. The studio was so enthusiastic with the testing screenings of Better Off Dead they quickly picked up Holland’s next project, One Crazy Summer.
Thanks to DVDs, HBO and the movies extended life on the small tube has kept Holland’s previous effort going.
We hope that Holland goes through with a sequel to One Crazy Summer since that movie was absolutely hilarious. It was a precursor to movies like There’s Something About Mary by the Farrelly brothers.
Maybe One Crazy Summer was inspiration for them, and these days audiences love movies that are outrageous with bits of sick humor.
In the interview with Fast Company, the director mentioned he’s considering a “semi-sequel” to One Crazy Summer:
“I’m doodling with Bobcat Goldthwait on a semi-sequel to One Crazy Summer. Our lives are just really different but I still love him and we say we gotta do this thing. So we are working on One Epic Fall. Of course, Joel [Murray] is gonna be in it. The question is, how do we make it a sequel when Cusack’s not gonna be in it? But we have so many bad, dumb, great jokes we’re piecing together to see if we can pull it off. I don’t think Demi [Moore] would be on board, but with Joel [Murray], Bobcat [Goldthwait] and Curtis [Armstrong], you’ve already got a trifecta of genius there.”
