Sure. Hearing that Star Wars Episode VII is officially titled Star Wars: The Force Awakens was big news yesterday. But not quite as big as the bombshell that executive producer Adam Sandler dropped this morning. Yes! Joe Dirt 2 also has an official title...And a glorious mullet to go with it.
Adam Sandler took to his personal Facebook page to offer fans a look at this anticipated sequel, which will debut exclusively on the Crackle streaming network.
Adam Sandler also confirms that the sequel will officially begin shooting in November. Crackle is poised to make history with Joe Dirt 2, the first ever made-for-digital sequel to a major motion picture. David Spade is returning in the eponymous role as Joe Dirt, re-teaming with Fred Wolf to co-write and executive produce the sequel. Wolf will also direct. Joe Dirt 2 will be produced by Happy Madison Productions, on location in Louisiana, the backdrop of the Baton Rouge based original feature film. The feature is scheduled to be released in 2015 on Crackle and all Crackle platforms.
The long-awaited sequel to the Columbia Pictures cult favorite comedy will pick-up where the first film left off, following the comedic misadventures of the mullet-clad, lovable redneck Joe Dirt. Check out this first look:
