Dude, Where’s the Sequel?
Twentieth Century Fox is developing a sequel to its low-budget hit comedy “Dude, Where’s My Car?”
Entitled “Seriously Dude, Where’s My Car?,” the new picture would follow the adventures of two sophomoric underachievers, played by Ashton Kutcher and Seann William Scott, who — thanks to some particularly potent marijuana — are once more comedically denied the whereabouts of their ride.
The decision seems obvious, at least on a financial level: the $14 million picture “Dude, Where’s My Car?” grossed $73 million worldwide since its 2000 release.
The studio is in final negotiations to sign producers Gil Netter and Wayne Rice and screenwriter Philip Stark for the sequel. It plans to shoot the film next year during Kutcher’s summer hiatus from hit sitcom “That ’70s Show,” where Stark formerly served as a story editor.
