Liberty Spike Productions has released eight photos from director James Merendino's new film Punk's Dead: SLC Punk 2. The film was successfully crowd funded through IndieGoGo, and it's awesome to see this movie taking shape! I'm a huge fan of the original 1990s film, which over the years has become a cult classic. It's going to be really awesome to be able to revisit some of these characters.
The photos include a huge mosh pit, Bob's ravaged headstone, Hannah Marks as Penny, Ben Schnetzer as Ross, Michael Goorjian returning as Heroin Bob, and more. Devon Sawa will reprise his role and Til Schweiger is rumored to be returning as well.
The story will revolve around a new character, who happens to be the child of Heroin Bob and Trish. Merendino went into a little more detail in a previous interview saying, “It’s about him interacting in this world with a much sharper point of view than even Stevo. He’s sort of a goth kid. He’s not mired by having to say he’s a punk rocker. I don’t know what else to say. I could give away more spoilers but then who’s gonna want to see the movie?”
I imagine the movie will end up premiering at the Sundance Film Festival next year. The first movie opened up the festival in 1999, so it would be a fitting return.
