If you ever, EVER wondered in what kind of universe a sequel to SHOWGIRLS would happen, well wonder no longer: you're living in it. Scared shitless aren't ya? Get a diaper, 'cause it won't get better.
According to German publication/site Extratipp, writer/director Marc Vorlander has been developing a follow-up called SHOWGIRLS: STORY OF HOPE, one centered on the original's minor character Hope played then -and now- by model/actress Rena Riffel. Actress being a loosely used term.
The project, says the trade, is so "good" it attracted two Hollywood producers and a $25M budget for production in Frankfurt. Wish I could tell you who those producers are and what kind of f*cked-up weed they smoke, but my German goes as far as Google Translation's... The darn thing did manage to get me a "decent" plotline decrypted though: "It's about stripper who died from a dose of contaminated cocaine. Her brother comes to Frankfurt to find the responsible and revenge." Biting my nails already.
Obviously I can't say I'm a fan of the original, not even in a love-how-its-bad way, so I'd call on those who are to weigh in. What do you guys think?
Thanks to "Mario" for the heads-up.
