OH GOD YES! Wet Hot American Summer Prequel!

Hallelujah! We will totally be first in line for this one!

The cult favourite, Wet Hot American Summer (2001), which starred a whole bunch of our favie comedians, might get a prequel! YEAH! The movie focused on the last day of summer camp, and the rumoured prequel will show us the summer at camp that we didn't get to see!

The cast at the time were a decade too old to play teenage camp counsellors, and that was part of the hilarity of it. The same actors, even older, would reprise their roles, and in a sense emphasize the joke (seeing as they're now 20 years too old). And technically they would be even younger than they were in the original. I love the irony.

And almost ALL of the cast have become huge stars since the original film! Bradley Cooper, hello!

Oh sweet Jesus, pleeeaaassee come back for the prequel! I'm talkin' to you Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Joe Lo Truglio, Molly Shannon, Christopher Meloni, Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Amy Poehler... and the rest! (haha it's like Gilligan's Island where the others don't get named).

I would like to see more of how Molly Shannon's breakdown began, and how she met that supportive little tyke in her arts and crafts class.

I'd also love to see Gene's descent into madness, and his blossoming love affair with the talking can of veg.

With so many possible storylines to revisit, our official stance is - YES. DO THE PREQUEL!!!

Um, according to who is there going to be a prequel? Or are we making this up out of thin air because it's on the Interwebs?

It's on wikipedia. We have more integrity than to just make crap up out of nowhere. And I only said it's rumoured, not official.

Writer David Wain is the one saying there might be a prequel.

If they were to have it, they would need to film the movie at a new location. Apparently the owner of the camp where they filmed the original was not happy with his experience with filming the original.
