    If it does happen, I can't see Brooks getting out of calling it "The Search for More Money", as the AICN link mentions. [​IMG]

    I was just thinking about this the other day. Now I guess I don't have to write it for my own amusement. [​IMG]

    *May the Schwartz be with you*

    Wonder if there will be any DVD jokes like the VHS joke in the first one. Perhaps they will pull it out and play all the alternate scenes or endings. [​IMG]

    It will be interesting to see who'll be in it.

    It'd be funny if they brought back Rick Moranis.

    This news definitely makes me smile.

    I'm glad to hear there will be a Spaceballs 2, and I agree it must be called the search for more money.

    Evil will win, because good is dumb.

    Will Rick Moranis return as Dark Helmet though? Last I heard, he was retired from acting all-together and raising his kids full time.

    What about Spaceballs III: The Search for Spaceballs II?

    I liked SPACEBALLS. I don't know if Mel Brooks still "has it" anymore, but I'd be interested in Part 2.

    Perhaps they will do a prequel that shows how he became Dark Helmet? If they did it like this, then they wouldn't necessarily need Moranis although for me he would be missed.

    Then again, who knows?

    Hey, who needs Moranis for Dark Helmet when David Prowse is still active? [​IMG]


    But, I've said it before and I'll say it again: John Candy is irreplaceable.

    If they can't get Rick Moranis, they coudl use David Burke. Also very funny and looks a lot like him.

    It doesn't have to be tied to the SW mythos so much this time out -- there's plenty of sacred fantasy franchise cows that need a good kick in the pants.

    I suspect George's penchant for re-editing the OT, Jar-Jar, the fact that no one notices Palpatine is Sidious, Amidala's elaborate hair-dos, Yogurt fighting, and the Clones (cue an anatomy joke) probably will provide some laughs.

    I don't think I could stomach another Matrix "bullet-time" spoof though, that's just been way overdone.

    I suppose they could riff on Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter also (maybe have young Dark Helmet kill Harry Potter to begin his descent to the Dark Side).

    Shawn, I don't think Brooks ever intended to make that "sequel", it was just a device to hang some more jokes on at the end. Some pretty good ones, too, with "Hitler on Ice" and "Jews in Space."

    I think it would be a great gag if they watch "Spaceballs: The Movie" again and you can't even see anything because the whole screen is filled with CGI creatures which obscure virtaully everything else.
