About six months ago it was announced that director James Merendino would make a sequel to his classic cult film SLC Punk. The director has raised some money for the project, and he plans to start shooting it soon in Salt Lake City, UT. The movie is called SLC Punk 2: Punk's Dead, and according to the director most of the original cast will be returning to reprise their roles. Some of those actors include Matthew Lillard, Annabeth Gish, Devon Sawa, Til Schweiger, Chris McDonald, and Michael A. Goorjian.
In a recent article in Utah's City Weekly, there are some plot details for the film that says the story will revolve around a new character, who is the child of Heroin Bob and Trish. Merendino went into a little more detail 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?” In a previous interview, the director talked about the sequel, saying,
"I made SLC Punk when I was a kid, and accordingly, the story is naive, and, as just a coming of age story, not finished. The characters are facing big questions, 18 years later, as outsiders, Punk rockers… What relevance do they have in a world where all statements have already been made?"
I loved the first movie, and I'm looking forward to seeing where all these characters ended up in life after all these years. What do you think of the plot details that have been released so far?
