They should've made the film...of course, it could've sucked like Caddyshack II.

Spaceballs II: Jar-Jar Strikes Back

September 30, 2004 - The Schwartz is still with comedic filmmaker Mel Brooks, who is reportedly considering a sequel to his hit Star Wars parody, Spaceballs. Brooks told Playbill magazine that he was currently writing a screenplay for a Spaceballs II.

"Why another Spaceballs? ...the first one was the best experience I've had making a movie since Blazing Saddles," said Brooks, whose more recent parody films include Robin Hood: Men in Tights and Dracula: Dead and Loving It.

The original Spaceballs, which came out in 1987, starred Canadian comedian Rick Moranis as Dark Helmet, Bill Pullman as the Han Solo-type Lone Starr, the late John Candy as Barf the Mawg, and Brooks himself as both President Skroob and Yogurt. Brooks intends to play Yogurt in the new film; perhaps it will be a prequel to the original Spaceballs.

Brooks intends to capitalize on the release of Lucas's third Star Wars prequel by getting his parody out at about the same time – a deadline that could be tough to make. "Best-case scenario: [Spaceballs II opens] a week before the new Star Wars opens. Worst-case scenario: a year after the new Star Wars opens."

The title is not set in stone either. Brooks has mentioned in the past that he'd like make a sequel called Spaceballs III: The Search for Spaceballs II. One pithy fan suggested the new movie be called "Spaceballs I", and the original one renamed Spaceballs It-Was-Always-Episode-IV. We'll let you know what Brooks decides on.

I dunno, my favortie quote from the move:
"How many @$$holes we got on this ship anyway?"
"YO!"
"I knew it, I'm surrounded by @$$holes."

Many a time did that get muttered at my old job.
