David Wain teases 'Wet Hot American Summer' prequel

Fact: Wet Hot American Summer is one of the greatest comedies ever made, if not the greatest. I am a huge fan of everything David Wain touched - from The State to Role Models - but Wet Hot is my absolute favorite. It is ridiculous, absurd, and completely hilarious. It boasted comedians like Janeane Garofalo and David Hyde Pierce; it had State alum like Ken Marino and Michael Ian Black; it had blooming megastars like Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Amy Poehler, and Bradley Cooper; and best of all, it had Christopher Meloni in his greatest role ever. Even genre favorite H. Jon Benjamin, soon to be a household name, had a small but memorable role. 

According to The Playlist, David Wain is still considering shooting a prequel to the film. It would take place during the same summer, only the actors would obviously be ten years old now. So the original film had 30-somethings playing 20-somethings, and the prequel will have 40-somethings playing teenagers. The absurdity continues! 

A sequel - any sequel - to this film would be amazing and I truly hope it happens. And now, because I can, a great scene from the original - the camp counselors go into town:
