Say Anything Too? Cameron Crowe admits talking sequel with John Cusack

Aug. 1, 2011by: Mike Sampson

Cameron Crowe is returning to filmmaking after a six year break following ELIZABETHTOWN. He's got the Matt Damon/Scarlett Johansson project WE BOUGHT A ZOO due in December and the Pearl Jam documentary "Pearl Jam Twenty" debuting on PBS this fall. Crowe took to the stage at the Television Critics Association this weekend to talk about the latter and let slip about a sequel he's been tossing around.

Perhaps Crowe's most beloved film, SAY ANYTHING..., is surprisingly the one film that Crowe says he'd be interested in revisiting. When asked about sequels, Crowe said, "I do kind of think there might be another chapter to [SAY ANYTHING...]. Ive thought about it from time to time, and talked to John Cusack about it."

Exactly what a SAY ANYTHING... sequel would entail or the level of the discussions between Crowe and Cusack remains unclear but I'm guessing it'd be some kind of BEFORE SUNRISE/BEFORE SUNSET type situation where we pick up the Lloyd Dobler and Diane Court characters over 20-years after the events in the original film.

It's likely that this is all very pie in the sky at this point and a SAY ANYTHING... sequel will probably never happen. But it's interesting to wonder what Crowe has in his mind for the characters in a potential sequel, which he admits, "Its the only thing Ive written that I would consider doing that with.

Would you want to see more of Lloyd Dobler or are you happy having him live on through the original film?

I think the original film is enough. This is just my opinion but if you try to make another "The Breakfast Club", it wouldn't work. Somehow 80s movies have that magic vibe to it. We'll see if the remake of Footlose will prove my theory.

I love SAY ANYTHING as much as anyone, but judging by Cusack's seething hatred for any of his 80s work (visible recently at Comic Con), I don't see this happening.

Say Everything...

Crowes a great writer and a very capable director, and I'm always down for more Cusack. The original is so good because it's a very realistic approach to teenage dating and love between some really great characters, and I for one, think it would be interesting to re-visit those characters after the allure of backseat love making wears off.

I'd always considered High Fidelity to be an unofficial look in to Lloyd Dobbler's life post Say Anything.

Power Lloyd, his assault on the world begins now.

First Lloyd gets into a magic hot tub with a bunch of friends and then... No, but seriously, I'd LOVE to see this happen. There's a ton of rich material from the movie that could be played out! Is Lloyd, Lloyd still null and void? I say, NO!

this is kinda cool, but I'd rather see a Better Off Dead sequel. Even better yet a One Crazy Summer sequel!

Love conquers all

This time Lloyd's daughter gets mixed up with a boyfriend HE doesn't approve of. She tells the boyfriend it's over but he won't give up and shows up at her house playing loud music. And the guy is SNOOP DOGG.
