If the recent news of a Joe Dirt sequel seemed to come out of left field, then this one is really going to throw you for a loop. The Wrap has word that SLC Punk! writer and director James Marendino is getting ready to shoot a sequel to his 1998 cult classic this June in Salt Lake City. The film is called SLC Punk 2: Punk’s Dead, and original cast members Devon Sawa, Michael Goorjian, Adam Pascal and James Duval are all returning to reprise their respective characters Sean, Heroin Bob, Eddie and John the Mod. The film takes place 18 years later, which could be real-time by the time the film comes out, but what’s it all about?

Awhile back, there was an Indiegogo campaign to help fund a big concert scene, and this synopsis was there:

“18 years later, in PUNK’S DEAD, Bob is still dead, but Trish from the Bong Shop, Stevo, Sean the Beggar, John the Mod, crazy Mark and tree hugger Mike are arrogantly saving the world for another generation…or they are at least trying. Get ready to find out what happened to your favorite characters, as we take you to the pivotal events in their lives since SLC PUNK. Holding it all together will be the misadventures and observations of one of their offspring, an eccentric kid named Ross, the Spawn of Heroin Bob, who has a lot to live up to…”

So there you go. Heroin Bob’s son will be played by Ben Schnetzer (who has a role in the upcoming Warcraft movie) as Heroin Bob’s son and Machine Gun Kelly has a role as a character named Crash.

In addition, there are two female leads played Hannah Marks and Sarah Clarke, lesser seen actresses who appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man and Twilight, respectively.

It sounds like this is a next generation kind of story, but with so many returning cast members, it doesn’t sound like it will all focus on the new characters. Merendino says there’s also two cameos that he won’t reveal. This seems like an odd project to come about, but the film has plenty of cult fans who will be interested. Are you one of them?

Nikita - How it would end

TORONTO, Canada — When the “Nikita” cast began filming their final season, they gathered together for a dinner at Lyndsy Fonseca’s Toronto place, where the topic of conversation was how their The CW show could end.

“We were having a good time,” Devon Sawa, who plays Sam/Owen in the series, said of the evening of fun. “Most of the cast was there and [co-executive producer/writer] Albert Kim, who is like a big part of our family. We just got together and had a vegetarian kind of BBQ.”

Back in September, visited the set of the series (courtesy of Warner Bros.), where Devon, Shane West and Aaron Stanford opened up about the evening they spent with their castmates, where they shared their suggestions on how to wrap up the show’s four season run.

Devon Sawa (Sam/Owen): “I didn’t have anything clever to say like the rest of them. … I just couldn’t think of anything not nasty to say on the chalkboard. ‘YOU ALL DIE!’ Most of them put something up there. Shane might have just put [an emoticon]. He loves those things. But yeah. It was funny.”

“Nikita” concludes on Friday night at 9/8c on The CW.

Nikita's final two episodes

TORONTO, ONT — There are just two episodes left of The CW’s “Nikita,” and it was precisely at this point in the filming process when visited the Toronto set of the show, courtesy of Warner Bros., where the cast was getting used to the idea of saying goodbye.

It was a warm September day in Toronto as the cast began preparations for filming Season 4’s penultimate episode. Emotions were starting to set in for the cast, but everyone was determined to make those last two episodes powerful.

Devon Sawa, who plays Sam (formerly Owen), explained his reaction to knowing the end was so near.

“It’s sad. I love all these people here. I love Toronto, but I know I’m gonna be back to Toronto,” Devon said. “We’re all gonna go off and do something else and we’ll keep in touch. We’re just glad we got six [episodes] ‘cause there was a lot of talk about not getting anything at all because of [The] CW doing this whole big push of new stuff this year, so they were really cool giving us six to kind of wrap it up and we’ve wrapped everything up and we’ve also created this six part like miniseries that’s kind of cool.”
