Are these people MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD? A sequel?!?
Posted by JPX
From aintitcoolnews, "Ed Bass, a producer of BOBBY, apparently really loves the ensemble cast style.
He's teamed with Stanley Kramer's (director of the original film) widow to make a sequel, which he began planning with Kramer himself starting in the early '90s. Kramer got ill and passed and the project went with him... until now.
The flick is about the descendants of the original team who are thrust into another big crazy chase when they find out that the money found in the original was counterfeit.
The plan is to stick to the formula of the first movie and mix dramatic actors and comic actors. It will be independently financed and no director is attached yet. They also want surviving cast members to cameo. George Barris is once again designing the automobiles for the flick.
Well, at least it's not a remake and the revelation that Kramer himself had input on the story and was optimistic about it might take this out of the "what the hell are they thinking" category."
