Mel Brooks Talking To MGM About Spaceballs 2

After a screening of his comedy classic Young Frankenstein yesterday, Mel Brooks himself took part in a Q&A with the fans. Of course someone was going to ask about Spaceballs 2.

When asked the question, Brooks said that MGM is interested in it due to the success of new Star Wars movies The Force Awakens and Rogue One, and that he’s currently talking with the studio about it.

Continue below to see a video of Brooks answering the question and more.

Spaceballs Tease Header Image

People have been talking about Spaceballs 2 quite a bit lately, especially considering it’s not officially a real thing yet. But when Mel Brooks himself sounds like he might actually make it, the flood gates were bound to open. It’s been a year since Brooks made those comments and not much has been heard since. The same story resurfaced recently because fans have the sequel lodged in their brain now and they want it badly, but other than that nothing.

This is also likely nothing, but if you’re desperate for anything Spaceballs 2 related it’s a tiny ray of light. Some teaser posters for a certain Spaceballs: The Search for More Money were spotted in New York recently. You can see the posters below.

Actor Dick Van Patten Dies At The Age Of 86

Dick Van Patten

Dick Van Patten, congenial actor, whose calming presence and everyman looks endeared him to a career in Hollywood which included playing character actors and sometimes leading roles, arguably the most remembered of which was the loving and fair dad on the light dramedy Eight is Enough, has died of complications from diabetes at the age of 86 in Santa Monica, California.

There seemed to be an ease about gazing at Van Patten on the small and big screen, no matter what the role or genre he appeared in. Starting his career on Broadway back in 1935, Van Patten had appeared on one of television’s very first long running programs once that medium began to flourish, titled Mama, back in 1949. It led to countless appearances on the small and large screen thereafter, especially during the 1970s, with a resume that almost resembled an A to Z of TV during that era including appearances on programs as diverse as Sanford and Son, Banacek, The Streets of San Francisco, Cannon, Emergency!, and Happy Days to name but a scant few.

Spaceballs Tease Header Image

The Facebook account for Mel BrooksStar Wars parody Spaceballs has posted something very interesting indeed.

An image was posted showing Dark Helmet (played in the movie by Rick Moranis), some planets and space stuff, and Lone Starr (Bill Pullman) and Barf’s (John Candy) space RV along with the words “This Friday…Something EPIC Is Coming.” The words are accompanied by the hashtag #TheSchwartzAwakens.

So what could the Facebook account for a movie from 1987 be teasing? Could it be the long awaited but never expected Spaceballs 2: The Search for More Money, which just this past February Brooks himself talked about making after Star Wars: The Force Awakens is released?

Hotel Transylvania 2 Trailer Image

The first Hotel Transylvania film showed that the most frightening monsters in cinema and literature can be human. Raising a family isn’t easy, especially when there are rebellious teenagers driving you mad.

Hotel Transylvania 2 is a continuation of the first film, and in the first trailer we get to see Dracula (voiced by Adam Sandler) acting like a momma bird by teaching his grandson how to fly by tossing him off a tower in hopes that instinct will kick in and he’ll transform into a bat despite being half human. Of course if you are a fan of the first film, you probably know how this will all end up. Watch the first trailer for Hotel Transylvania 2 after the jump.

Mel Brooks in Spaceballs

Ever since the Star Wars parody Spaceballs was released in 1987, fans of the movie have been wanting and hoping for the sequel that was joked about in the movie, titled Spaceballs 2: The Search for More Money.

Because it was only a joke initially, most people never expected the movie to ever actually get made, especially almost three decades since the original was released. But could farcical directing legend Mel Brooks be ready to actually make the sequel? A recent interview seems to indicate that he might just want to.
