I am ashamed to admit how freaking excited I am for this film. As most of you hardcore Joe Dirt fans know, David Spade is putting on that beautiful mullet once again for Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser. We learned the somewhat surprising news earlier this month.
It was announced that Happy Madison will produce the film, and it will be released worldwide on the website Crackle in 2015. For those of you who have never heard of Crackle before, it’s essentially a television network on the internet. It’s free to watch; however, you do have to sit through commercials, which means this new Joe Dirt movie will have commercials.
Former Saturday Night Live writer Fred Wolf was hired to help David Spade write and produce the sequel. When the news was first announced, we heard that filming would begin in Louisiana in mid-November.
Well, we are right in the middle of November and it looks like filming is right on track. David Spade posted the gorgeous selfie you see down below to his Twitter account yesterday. He captioned the photo, “Day 1. Let’s get this s*** started! #imjoedirt #whatscrappenin”
Ah, this almost brings a tear to my eye. If you haven’t seen the first Joe Dirt, I highly suggest you check it out. Don’t let the 11% on Rotten Tomatoes deter you. You need this man in your life.
