Get the corn out of your face and put on your stretchy pants because there could be a Nacho Libre 2! Jack Black informed the world that he wants to do a Nacho Libre sequel and we are all for it.

According to Deadline, Black appeared on the British talk show The Jonathan Ross Show and told the world: “I’ve always wanted to do another Nacho Libre.” let me remind you, this is the greatest movie about a Mexican Catholic priest becoming a masked luchador in order to finance an orphanage of all-time.

This isn’t the first time that Black expressed interest in making a sequel to Nacho Libre. In 2006, Black said, “I sure hope [there’s a sequel]. I love working with Jared (Hess). I think it’s a good bet that we’ll collaborate on something again. Mike had an idea that it would be Nacho goes to Japan, we’ll see though.”

However, back in October of 2009, Hess (of Napoleon Dynamite fame) said that Paramount never approached him about doing a sequel to masked crusader. Hess did acknowledge that he’d “love to work with Black again.”
