Goon 2: Jay Baruchel Shares First Image from the Last Of The Enforcers Set

20 June 2015 12:08 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The hockey comedy Goon was a nice little underrated gem of 2011, and while there had been talk of a sequel in the interim, it was unclear if the follow-up would actually come to fruition. Cut to today, where production is indeed underway on Goon 2, which is officially titled Goon: Last of the Enforcers. We know filming has begun because Jay Baruchel just shared an image of the cast reunited on set, decked out in full hockey gear. In addition to producing and filling a supporting role onscreen, Baruchel co-wrote the first film alongside Evan Goldberg. For Last of the Enforcers, Baruchel is making his directorial debut, taking over helming duties from Goon’s Michael Dowse. Goon star Seann William Scott returns in the lead role as Doug “the Thug” Glatt, who in the first film went from bar bouncer to enforcer for a minor league hockey team. In the sequel, »

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...

Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.

Without further ado...

23 Jump Street

Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »

Elisha Cuthbert Skates Her Way Into Jay Baruchel's 'Goon 2'

9 June 2015 2:31 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

2011's R-rated raunchy-sports-comedy-with-a-heart-of-gold Goon is the latest comedy to be getting a sequel. And while law of averages are not in its favor when it comes to comedy sequels, Seann William Scott, Jay Baruchel, Liev Schreiber and Alison Pill are all set to return and throw around hockey pucks as much as they do certain four-letter words in Goon: Last of the Enforcers. Joining them inside the ice rink, however, is Elisha Cuthbert. The "24" and Girl Next Door star joins the movie to play Pill's outlandish sister. Pill plays Eva, the love interest to rising hockey star Doug "The Thug" Glatt (Scott). This new movie finds Doug and his team, Halifax Highlanders, working with a variety of new players during a pro lockout. So it looks like Cutherbert isn't the only newbie in the Goon universe, and with production to begin on June 21 in Toronto under producers David Gross, Jesse Shapira and Jeff Arkuss, »

Week in Review: The New York Times will no longer review every movie opening in NY

22 May 2015 8:52 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In this day and age of film criticism, less of it is seemingly always a bad thing, and when a bastion like The New York Times announces they’re cutting back, it seems like a particularly painful blow. However, Variety Thursday obtained an email from Nyt Film Critic A. O. Scott explaining that the Times would no longer be reviewing every movie opening in New York, and the ironic truth is that this “new” policy may go a long way toward bettering the film coverage.

“Because of the increasing volume of new films released each year, the Times is no longer able to guarantee reviews of all New York theatrical releases,” Scott said in an email. He went on to add in a phone interview to Variety that the paper had already instated such a policy quietly earlier this year, and coyly confirmed as much on Twitter.

In 2013, the Times published nearly 900 film reviews. »

Jay Baruchel To Direct Hockey Comedy Sequel 'Goon: Last Of The Enforcers'

18 May 2015 8:20 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There is a small, but devoted and vocal contingent, who believe the 2011 Canadian hockey flick, "Goon," is a modern sports comedy classic. And while I am not one of those people, there are enough of them that it has turned the talk of a followup into a reality.

Seann William Scott will return to reprise his role as Doug Glatt, whose skills on the ice have less to do with puck-handling and goal scoring, than with using his fists. The new film will find Glatt back in action with the Halifax Highlanders when there's a pro hockey lockout, presumably leading to more unhinged on-ice action. »

Jay Baruchel Makes His Directorial Debut With 'Goon: Last of the Enforcers'

16 May 2015 8:34 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Only after this year's fantastically funny new series "Man Seeking Woman" did I ever appreciate Jay Baruchel presence. The Fxx series, easily the best new show I've seen this year (although I haven't seen "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" or "Bloodline" yet), is highly inventive and way more inspired and clever than your average 20-something-based sitcom, and Baruchel carries the show with as much stride as an awkward lead character can. Now converted to Baruchel's on-screen work, I'm curious to see what he can do behind the camera. In addition to co-starring in the 2011 hockey comedy Goon, he also helped pen the screenplay beside Evan Goldberg, and with a sequel to the film in the works, Baruchel is pushing for more involvement. As he returns to this sequel, Goon: Last of the Enforcers, as a writer alongside Jesse Chabot and actor, reprising the loud, foul-mouthed best friend Pat, he will also »

Jay Baruchel to make directorial debut with sport comedy Goon sequel

16 May 2015 8:33 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A follow up to 2011's sports comedy Goon is in the works and Jay Baruchel is set to helm the project.

Baruchel will not only direct Goon: Last of the Enforcers but co-write and reprise his character, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Goon follows Doug (Seann William Scott) - a bouncer who becomes a hockey player after beating an opposing player during a game he attends with his best friend Pat (Baruchel).

Scott also returns to his role as his team will "reunite with a host of new players during a pro lockout".

The first film was directed by Michael Dowse and written by Baruchel and Evan Goldberg (This Is the End). Baruchel is co-writing the sequel with Jesse Chabot.

Baruchel currently stars in Fxx's Man Seeking Woman, which premiered in January. It was renewed for a second season in March.

The actor also appeared in Idlewild's latest single 'Every »

Actor Jay Baruchel Will Direct 'Goon' Sequel 'Last of the Enforcers'

15 May 2015 1:51 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Now this is good news. THR is reporting that the sequel to Goon, the awesome cult hockey movie starring Seann William Scott, will be directed by actor Jay Baruchel, making his directorial debut with this film. Baruchel is a major proponent behind the entire film, as he's co-writing the screenplay with Jesse Chabot, and also starring again as Seann William Scott's character's friend Pat. Of course they've got Seann William Scott back as violent hockey player Doug "The Thug" Glatt and they're already gearing up to start filming in June in Toronto. I've got a good feeling about this, it all sounds quite promising, especially with Baruchel. It was also revealed the title of this follow-up is Goon: Last of the Enforcers. Bring on the hockey fights. The film will be produced by David Gross, Jesse Shapira, and Jeff Arkuss of No Trace Camping and André Rouleau of Caramel Films. »

Baruchel co-wrote the first film Evan Goldberg (The Interview) and is penning the script for the sequel alongside his writing partner Jesse Chabot. Goldberg will return as executive producer. The first film followed Sean William Scott's Doug 'The Thug' Glatt, a bouncer-turned-minor league hockey player with a penchant for fist fighting. Per THR, Scott is set to reprise his role as the pugilistic puck slinger "in a story that sees his team, the Halifax Highlanders, reunite with a host of new players during a pro lockout."
