It’s been over 13 years since we’ve seen Joe Dirt with his side chops, mullet and acid-washed jeans. Sony Pictures’ streaming video service Crackle has taken a bold leap to give “Joe Dirt” a second epic adventure. The sequel will see David Spade reprise his role as the titular character, and he will also co-write the script. We have no idea what is in store for the mullet sporting hillbilly with the plot still tightly under wraps, but the second movie is confirmed to pick up where the first film left off. In the first movie, Joe hits the road alone in search of his parents who left him at the Grand Canyon when he was a baby. His misguided search which leads to misadventures, leads Joe to Los Angeles where a radio show DJ assists him to locate his parents while broadcasting his life story.
“I’m beyond stoked that ‘Joe Dirt’ will finally hit the screens again on Crackle,” “I’ve been sleeping in this wig for years and it will be nice to wear it in the daytime again.”
Eric Berger from Crackle:
“David Spade had a fresh and unique vision for ‘Joe Dirt 2’ that he could have brought anywhere and we couldn’t be happier that he brought it to Crackle for a first-of-its-kind, worldwide release,”
Production is said to start in mid-November on a location in Louisiana. The movie will be released via Sony Pictures’ streaming video service Crackle in 2015.
