Yee-haw! Black Dynamite is getting a sequel that will be a western homage in the vein of Blazing Saddles

Black Dynamite still 1

Dyn-o-mite!

BLACK DYNAMITE was actually kind of brilliant.  It flawlessly captured everything about the Blaxsploitation genre it was paying homage to, both the good and the bad.  Now while that didn't always do the movie quite the favor it might have hoped (despite the funk and the kung-fu action and the hilarious lines, it wore out its welcome 2/3 of the way in), you could definitely see how BLACK DYNAMITE was a complete labor of love from star Michael Jai White and everyone involved.

There is an animated show that's making waves on Adult Swim, and White has spoken in the past about the possibility of doing one or two sequels that took the tone and referential intent of the first movie and translated it into other genres and styles.  "Spiritual sequels" is what I believe that kids would call it these days.  Well, turns out that what we thought was mere wishful thinking is actually inching closer and closer to becoming a reality.  Crave Online recently caught White at the premiere of ALEX CROSS, and here's what he had to say about the future of the Black Dynamite name:

What would actually be really great is if White and co. could get various stars of Western movies to come along for the ride, much like Brooks did with SADDLES. Not that I expect Clint Eastwood to ever star in a movie that is part of the greater BLACK DYNAMITE universe, but that doesn't mean it wouldn't be genius and fantastic and awesome.

You can definitely expect us to update you on the next moves this franchise makes, because a marriage of BLACK DYNAMITE and BLAZING SADDLES would probably cause me to break my ribs from laughter and leave an empty spot on JoBlo's writing roster.  Stay tuned, and keep the faith brothers (and sisters)!

And speaking of which, here are two clips from BLAZING SADDLES - be warned, the language is not at all safe for work.

Fiendish Doctor Wu, you done fucked up now!

Dynamite, Dynamite! This is the best news I've heard all day, Black Dynamite is so funny! I've loved Black Dynamite since I saw the first movie trailer. "Now if I catch any of you dealing drugs to the community, I will not consider you a brother or a friend, can you dig it?"

I'm definitely on board. White's writing and acting for Black Dynamite was hilarious. The animated series leaves me laughing just as hard as the movie does as well. Glad to see that he's turning his attention back to this project.

Oh fuck...

"I thought I told all you honkies from the local Sheriff's office that Black Dynamite was out of the game!"

There needs to be a Mexican stand-off scene where Black Dynamite just uses his hands and fingers as guns. All he does is point and it kills the guy.

Good news. I loved Black Dynamite, and Michael Jai White played it flawlessly. I can't wait to see what they come up with.

I'm assuming he means a take-off on blaxploitation westerns, rather than an homage to a spoof proper. In which case I'm totally up for it. I'd vote they bring in Jim Brown, Bo Hopkins, and L.Q. Jones, at the very least. Or is Jim Brown too iconic?
