Could it be true, campers? Is cult comedy "Wet Hot American Summer" finally coming back into our lives?
According to Variety, David Wain's 2001 camp classic is being developed into a 10-episode series for Netflix.
Sources say that the prequel "would seek to reunite many of the original cast members who would play high-school-age characters despite the fact many of the actors are currently in their 40s."
Um, that sounds hilarious.
The idea of some sort of follow-up to the movie has been floating around for years now. When asked about the project in 2012 on Watch What Happens Live!, writer and star Michael Showalter teased the possibility, saying, "absolutely yes. One hundred percent yes. The whole gang -- everyone is back. We're doing it."
But it seems that getting all the other now-superstars who appeared in the original to sign on would be quite the feat. "Wet Hot American Summer" starred Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Paul Rudd, and Bradley Cooper to name a few.
Variety reports "the plan is to make it happen by having each of the actors shoot their scenes in just a few days because not every character will appear in every episode."
Reunited and it feels so good. We can't wait to go back to camp.
