Dust off your mullets and pump up the Skynyrd because there will be a “Joe Dirt 2.” Adam Sandler announced that there will be a sequel to the cult classic on his personal Facebook page.
This is sure to get mops everywhere soaking wet. “Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser” will debut exclusively on the Crackle streaming network and be the first ever made-for-digital sequel to a major motion picture. David Spade reprises his 2001 role as lovable redneck school custodian. Spade joked about the news with Deadline:
“I’m beyond stoked that ‘Joe Dirt’ will finally hit the screens again on Crackle. I’ve been sleeping in this wig for years and it will be nice to wear it in the daytime again.”
Former “SNL” writer Fred Wolf, who is a Sandler staple “Grown Ups” “Strange Wilderness” and “Joe Dirt,” will co-write and executive produce the sequel. Strangely the announcement comes a week after Sandler’s production company Happy Madison reached a deal for four original movies with Crackle’s competitor Netflix. “JD2” will begin production in November in Louisiana with a goal of a 2015 release.
