Back in 2011 Seann William Scott starred in the Canadian-American sports comedy “Goon,” directed by Michael Dowse and written by Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg. The film, which was the surprise of the summer, followed a dimwitted man who becomes the enforcer for a minor league ice hockey team. Now six years later, Scott and almost all of the original cast is back in the sequel “Goon: Last of the Enforcers.”
Making his directorial feature debut, Baruchel serves as director and returns as co-writer, this time with Jesse Chabot. The comedy once again follows Doug Glatt (Scott) who, after being forced to give up his aspirations of going to the big show, rejoins the Halifax Highlanders to reclaim his former glory. Check out the first trailer below.
The sequel features returning actors Baruchel, Liev Schreiber, Alison Pill, Marc-André Grondin, Kim Coates, Eugene Levy, David Paetkau and Jonathan Cherry. New cast members include Elisha Cuthbert, Wyatt Russell and T.J. Miller.
Scott made a name for himself in the early 2000s portraying Stifler in the “American Pie” series and also starring in “Road Trip,” “Dude, Where’s My Car?” and “The Dukes of Hazzard.” While he’s been flying under the radar these days, he’s voiced the character of Crash in the “Ice Age” animated films and TV shorts. He was last seen acting in the 2014 drama “Just Before I Go.”
“Goon: Last of the Enforcers” will be released in Canada on March 17, 2017. No word on US distribution or release date.
