Great news for all of you Trailer Park Boys fans out there. Mike Smith, who plays the iconic shed dwelling Bubbles, told Toronto’s Now magazine that they are currently shooting a sequel to Trailer Park Boys: The Movie, an off-shoot of the popular Canadian TV series, and it will be hitting the U.S. and Canada in October of 2009.
The gang is currently in Halifax shooting the comedy, which will wrap on October 10th. The entire gang is returning for another go around with Ricky, Julian, Bubbles, Mr. Lahey, and Randy all involved in another greasy cheeseburger scheme. The plot finds our trio of trailer park misfits being released from jail only to find that their beloved home, the Sunnyvale Trailer Park, has been taken over by a meaner, leaner park supervisor. This new Jim Lahey has some big changes in mind for the park, changes that don’t exactly go over well with the Boys, who will now face their biggest test since Grade 10.
Original series director Mike Clattenburg co-wrote the new screenplay with Trailer Park Boys: The Movie actors John Paul 'Julian' Tremblay, Robb 'Ricky' Wells and Mike 'Bubbles' Smith. Clattenburg will co-produce the film with Barrie Dunn and Michael Volpe. There was no word of original film producer Ivan Reitman’s involvement.
Trailer Park Boys: The Movie was released January 25th, 2008 and stars Robb Wells, John Paul Tremblay, Mike Smith, Lucy Decoutere, Lydia Lawson-Baird, Cory Bowles, Michael Jackson, Gord Downie. The film is directed by Mike Clattenburg.
