Luke Wilson: I Need "Old School 2"

by | May 8, 2007 | Comments

About a month after Ivan Reitman announced he was in possession of a new draft for an "Old School 2" script, star Luke Wilson got excited. He hasn’t been privy to the screenplay but he’s already committing to it.

"That’s the best news I’ve heard," Wilson said. "I’m always kind of hoping in the back of my mind for Will [Ferrell] and Vince [Vaughn] to kind of bomb so they have to do it because I need it. That would be great."

As long as the original screenwriter and director are in place, Wilson has no concerns for the sequel’s quality. "I always had confidence that if Todd Phillips, who directed it, and Scot Armstrong, the guy that he wrote it with, I just know they wouldn’t want to ruin the goodwill of the first one of the people who seemed to like it. So I just would figure would have to be just as good if not better but that’s pretty cool."

With at least a third of the acting team ready to go, Reitman should really messenger a copy over to Wilson’s office. " I always get people asking and I just never know. It’s the kind of thing where once a year, somebody will call like my agent or something and say, ‘Would you be up for doing Old School 2?’ I always say, ‘Yeah, definitely.’ It’ll probably end up being me and two guys besides Will and Vince."
