Holy Schwartz!!! Yogurt to return with SPACEBALLS 2?!?
Ain't It Cool News (The GEEK's geek, undergound movie-web site) ^ | ,September 28, 2004 | Quint

Posted on 05/14/2005 6:14:43 PM PDT by FreedomNeocon

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here... YES, YES, YES, PLEASE YES. I can't tell you how much I love SPACEBALLS... I remember seeing it in the theaters when it came out... I was very young and had no idea what the hell it was. There was something else I wanted to see more at the theater and I remember whining to my mom that I didn't want to see this stupid-sounding movie. She said, "Relax. It's like STAR WARS, you'll love it." And that began my long love affair with Dark Helmet, Lone Star, Princess Vespa, Barf ("Not in here, mister! This is a Mercedes!") and the rest of those looney characters. I hope this happens. Mel Brooks isn't getting any younger and I'd be very sad if his last film is DRACULA: DEAD AND LOVING IT... Here's a bit of the interview with Playbill Magazine with Mel Brooks! Mori,

here's something filmish you might also be interested in.

There's a small Q and A with Mel Brooks in Playbill magazine, which is all about theatre shows, in which he says there are more movies on the way that he's doing..have a great day.

Playbill : What's the secret to The Producers longevity?

MB: I think it's just a matter of right time, right place. There was a thing called video and then there was a thing called DVDs, then it became more successful, and so the time was right for it, ripe for it actually, to go to Broadway. Now, it's the right time for it to be made back into a movie.

Playbill : With Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane?

MB: Most definitely. There might be a few changes, for instance an Australian chap named Bert Newton plays Franz Leibkind in the show down under and he gives the performance of that role I've ever seen frankly. I'd love Newton to be involved. I'd also like Nicole Kidman to be involved, and apparently she's keen.

Playbill : Will you have a role in it?

MB : It's doubtful, but I'm writing myself back into the Spaceballs sequel that I'm now writing, so you haven't seen the last of my face. Why another Spaceballs? It wouldn't feel right have anyone else play Yoghurt and the first one was the best experience I've had making a movie since Blazing Saddles.

Playbill : When can we expect that?

MB : Best case scenario : a week before the new Star Wars opens. Worst Case Scenario : a year after the new star wars opens.

Yes! I bet Brooks could really take some of the piss out of the prequels pretty badly if he wanted to... I just hope the film is subtitled THE SEARCH FOR MORE MONEY! I can't wait!!!

If Mel Brooks makes good on that joke in the first movie and actually give his sequel to Spaceballs that name, then he is either a genius, a mad man, or BOTH...

But from what it sounds like, he still has all his marbles.

I have it in VHS noe less. We still watch it.

I like the part where the 'Alien' after it burst out of John Hurts body, runs across the counter at the restaurant, they stand up and say. "Check Please", at the same time.

BTW: Note how "Bill Pullmen" (the lower left) was not mentioned since it was a nobody at the time.

You might remember him from the President of the USA in Independence Day

The line I never forget:

VESPA
How dare you speak to me that way. You will address me in the proper manner as your royal highness. I am Princess Vespa, daughter of Roland, King of the Druids.


LONE STARR
Oh. That's all we needed, a Druish princess.


BARF
Funny. She doesn't look Druish.

Geez. Colonel Sanders in that pic ("what's the matter, Colonel Sanders... chicken!!?"). He looks just like Sen. John Kerry attempting a smile.

My son and I would watch tv reruns, sitting repeated the lines with tears running down our faces. The rest of the family would just shake their heads. It's one of the best memories I have.

But NOW... I have my grandkids doing the same. "Can we watch Spaceballs Nan?" my answer... "Only if I can watch it with you."

I can't even count how many times I've seen that movie, and it's still funny. Doesn't that say something for the art of comedy?

Cheesy lines, not stupid lines. There is a difference between the two. Cheesy lines are funny. Verbal stupid lines are not funny.

Mel Brooks is a comic genius, he is the only one of two people I know of who did a Unicron Transformers parody. The others were the creators of the Megas XLR series (Skalgar being my personal favorite of those Unicron parodies), which was done almost 20 years after Spaceballs was made.
