Mel Brooks Teases Spaceballs 2: The Search for More Money!

     With the upcoming December release of the highly anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Mel Brooks has hinted towards a possible sequel to the beloved cult classic spoof Spaceballs.  In the original Spaceballs a sequel was already jokingly named Spaceballs 2: The Search for More Money.

Brooks is a true master of comedy.
     The news was broken on Adam Coralla's paid podcast Take a Knee last week and this is wonderful news for fans everywhere.  I've been a lifelong fan and never disliked any of his films, and this is potentially amazing turn of events.  Sure, the film market is over-saturated with reboots and sequels, but we haven't had a Brooks level spoof in years- and this would be a perfect opportunity.

     Brooks mentioned he would be eager to proceed, but only if Rick Moranis (Dark Helmet) would come out of retirement for it.  Other cast members still available are Bill Pullman as Lone Star, Daphne Zuniga as Princess Vespa, and Brooks himself in the dual roles of Yogurt and President Skroob.  Sadly the loss of both John Candy as Barf and Joan Rivers as the voice of Dot would be sorely felt, but a proper spoof can work around it.

     And for one further tease Brooks posted this in response to a beer tweet:

     While we anxiously await future news, "May the Schwartz be with you."

     I would also highly recommend watching Mel Brooks: Make a Noise on Netflix.  It's an interview/documentary that offers a tremendous amount of insight and humor from Brooks himself.
