Seann William Scott Goon: Last of the Enforcers

As someone who was very pleasantly surprised by the excellent sports/comedy GOON, I've been anxiously awaiting the sequel for what has seemed like forever; I've got a poor grasp of time. Production on GOON: LAST OF THE ENFORCERS began close to a year-and-a-half ago in Ontario (JoBlo was right there on set), but little information emerged on when we might get to see the finished product, until now.

Entertainment One and producers No Trace Camping and Caramel Films have announced today that GOON: LAST OF THE ENFORCERS will be released in theaters across Canada on March 17, 2017. Canada, that's where I live! Golly! As for when the sequel will be released stateside, we're not sure, but if the first GOON is any indication, the sequel will likely follow suit the month after. Along with the announcement, a new image from GOON: LAST OF THE ENFORCERS has also emerged.

GOON: LAST OF THE ENFORCERS will see Seann William Scott returning as lovable enforcer Doug “The Thug” Glatt, Liev Schreiber as the iconic Ross “The Boss” Rhea, Marc-André Grondin as superstar Xavier LaFlamme, Kim Coates as Highlanders Coach Ronnie Hortense and Alison Pill as Doug’s love interest, now wife, Eva. Jay Baruchel, who co-wrote and directed the flick, will also return as Pat, Doug’s best friend. GOON newbies include Wyatt Russell as Anders Cain, a young volatile hot shot who becomes Captain of the Halifax Highlanders when a pro lockout suddenly sends a slew of new players down to the minors, and Elisha Cuthbert as Mary, sister and confidante of Eva. There aren't many comedy sequels out there which can hope to equal their predecessors, but I've got my fingers crossed that GOON: LAST OF THE ENFORCERS will be one of them.

We're playing divorced men fella's

Finally a release date. Glad that everyone is back for this sequel, hopefully the sequel has the charm and hilarity like the first one had.

GOON was surprisingly sweet and funny between the fight scenes

I really liked it. Looking forward to seeing this one; I hope it doesn't suffer from the usual fate of sequels.

Hell yeah

Not usually much for sports films, despite being a massive sports fan in general. I don't even follow hockey. Goon was a tremendously fun movie, regardless. I generally am against unnecessary sequels, but Scott's charm - and Pill's as well, were just overwhelming. Schrieber was absolutely perfect as well. I'll be happy to see all of them again.

Nice to see an announcement for a release date. I really liked the first film, it's great from a non-sports fan point of view. Nice to see most of the cast returning. and hiccup directing is cool too. I believe he wrote the first one.

Glad to see some love for the first movie, everyone I know who saw it really liked it. A shame that a good, small, and unique movie like this doesn't appear to get major distribution in theaters outside Canada. Maybe if the Chinese were in to hockey it would have a better chance.

I'm really looking forward to Goon 2. The first movie is one of my favorite comedic sports movies.

I'm one of the few Canadians that really doesn't like hockey, but grew up watching it and somewhat appreciating it (nor do I know how to skate). But holy shit do I love Goon...it rivals Slap Shot for best hockey movie ever, and is easily in the top 10 best sports movies. Hey JoBlo, have we ever had a best sports movie poll?

Cant Wait

The first Goon is easily one of my favorite sports movies ever made. Hope the sequel has the same vibe and heart as the first one.
