Lets hope Tawny Kitaen is invited again
Twenty-Two years after Tom Hanks first flung the streamers around for his “Bachelor Party” – a sequel has been commissioned.
According to Video Business, “Bachelor Party 2” – which, by the way, won’t feature Academy favourite Hanks – will be headed straight to DVD sometime this year.
“It’s more about how beloved a movie was than when it was”, explains FOX’s Steve Bersch. Bachelor Party was a classic in its day. But very rarely will you see a movie launch specifically for video that doesn’t have any brand equity attached. A franchise lets you compete on street date with a [theatrical] movie that probably has a $30 million marketing spend.”
According to The Movie Insider, Jay Longino will write the script for the film and Ron Moler, William Sherak, Jason Shuman will produce.
In 1984’s “Bachelor Party”, Tom Hanks played Rick Gassko, a soon-to-be-married man whose friends throw him the ultimate bachelor party. The film also starred the late Wendie Jo Sperber.
