David Spade Confirms ‘Joe Dirt’ Sequel During Reddit AMA

Joe Dirt sequel is in the works. David Spade confirmed the news today during a Reddit AMA.

Spade has appeared in dozens of movies over the years but most people still know him as that sister banging, hemi-driving, asteroid finding, mullet wearing redneck Joe Dirt. During his AMA several people asked him about the movie and the chances of a sequel.

Spade said that a new movie was actually in the works and that it could be the first sequel to get released on Crackle.com.

Spade said: “We wrote a sequel, and we may wind up doing it on Crackle.com, because they want to be the first web address to do a sequel to a movie. Because Sony owns them, and it’s a Sony movie. We’re trying to find a way to make it for the budget, but we really want to do it. And keep it good.”

The budget isn’t the only concern. Joe Dirt has become a bit of a cult classic over the years and the comedian is worried that a sequel won’t live up to expectations. Spade said that he wants to make sure that the Joe Dirt sequel is every bit as funny as the first.

That’s a pretty high bar to meet. And in addition to the comedy problem, Spade also has to make sure that he can get co-stars like Kid Rock and Christopher Walken to appear in the low budget sequel.

Spade said: “We’re putting it together now and seeing if we can keep it as funny and with the music we like for a lower budget. All the movies you hear about being made now keep running into budget problems, this and that, and it sounds boring, but it’s just a new world, where they can’t make those $15-30 million comedies anymore. It’s either $3 million or $200 million, there’s almost no in-between, so everyone’s adjusting to either a summer tentpole Avengers-type movie, or learning to get down and dirty and gritty and making a smaller movie. I just don’t want to burn the fans and want to make it good, so me and the other writer are combing through the sequel and trying to make it make sense and have good music and be funny within the parameters. So hopefully it will be soon, or it will be too pointless.”
