Jay Baruchel has confirmed that work has begun on a follow-up to Goon.  Baruchel is co-writing the script with Jesse Chabot. Evan Goldberg is once again producing and Michael Dowse will return to direct.  I’ll leave the rest to Jay himself…

“Please know this: GOON is pretty close to sacred for all of us involved and we would only be entertaining the idea of continuing the saga if we were all equally convinced that Doug, Laflamme, Stevesy, the Russians, Rolie, Ogilvy, Belchy and Eva were only getting started. We will give them and you guys the epic, violent, heartfelt awesomeness that is not just deserved but required. HIGH. LAND. ERS.”

Goon is one of the best films that I have seen this year.  While technically a 2011 film, most of us didn’t get the opportunity to catch it until it hit VOD and DVD/Blu this year.  If you haven’t seen it yet, do yourself a favor and check it out.  While I’m sure there are a few naysayers out there, I haven’t come across a single one yet.  Given that it is still available for streaming off of both Netflix Instant and Amazon Instant (free viewing for Prime members), as well as widely available physically, you no longer have any excuse.
