Goon Seann William Scott

Goon, which you can still see on Netflix Instant, was a gongshow with just enough heart in its helmet. An excellent sports movie from filmmakers that clearly loved the game and built strong characters to strap skates to. According to Cinema Blend, co-writer Jay Baruchel has confirmed that he and Jesse Chabot are working on a sequel script while Michael Dowse is returning to direct and Evan Goldberg will return as a producer.

So there will be more blood on the ice.

This is the kind of sequel that makes sense. The first film was a complete story, but clearly the creators have more to say and more to explore, and they’ll be able to do so with control over the movie and support from a healthy fan base. What’s more, it could signal a highly visible brand of success for an indie distributed through a reputable company (Magnet Releasing) being able to build a franchise from original material. How cool is that?
