He says they're going to get everyone back...
Michael Showalter spoke with Crave Online about the upcoming Wet Hot American Summer prequel series on Netflix. Check out the highlights:
On the project's status: "[W]e have an outline, but we don't have a script."
On getting the star-heavy cast back: "We wouldn't have wanted to do it if we couldn't get everybody, so we did our due diligence before the fact and everyone wants to do it... At this point it's just a scheduling thing."
On the season taking place on the first day of camp: "[W]e're not going to try to make everything make sense. There will be some of that, but we're not trying to do a really intricate story. It's more just an opportunity to bring the cast back together and tell more stories about these camp kids."
On a potential new The State film: "The State has talked about doing our Life of Brian, that kind of a thing," he says. "We would get together and make our own 'State' movie, and that's something I have always wanted to do, and I think we all have wanted to do it, but it's just very hard to get everyone together to do it. But that would be cool."
