Jay Baruchel to write 'Goon 2'
Jay Baruchel is set to write a sequel to Goon, the ice hockey comedy he co-wrote with Evan Goldberg and starred in alongside Seann William Scott, Liev Schreiber, and Alison Pill. Released earlier this year, the original Goon was loosely based on the minor league adventures of real-life hockey “enforcer” Doug Smith.
In a series of tweets, Baruchel announced he will penn the script with Goon associate producer Jesse Chabot and that Goldberg would be involved as a producer. He also confirmed that filmmaker Michael Dowse, who oversaw the first, extremely foul-mouthed film, “is directing the motherf—er.”
