SLC Punk sequel with Matthew Lillard in the works

SLC Punk sequel with Matthew Lillard in the works

With his career revival (thanks to turns in “The Descendants” and “Trouble with the Curve”) 90’s teen-film staple Matthew Lillard seemingly has a bit more clout – or rather, clout.

Lillard and writer-director James Merendino are in the midst of getting a sequel up to their 1998 ‘ode to punk’ called “SLC Punk”, http://www.ifc.com/fix/2012/10/matthew-lillard-fat-kid-rules-the-world-slc-punk-interview reports today.

Though Lillard says Merendino and the film’s producers didn’t initially “bite”, they’ve seemingly come around; Merendino telling the site that he’s currently in NYC working on the sequel – tentatively titled “Punk’s Dead”.

The original film starred “Scooby Doo” vet Lillard as a wacky-looking punk “fighting the system” in Salt Lake City. Co-stars included Michael A. Goorjian (“Party of Five”), Annabeth Gish (“The X-Files”), Christopher McDonald (“Happy Madison”), and some guy called Jason Segel.

For those that didn’t catch “SLC Punk”, here’s a treat from YT :
