Turbo Kid 2: Ambitious Road Warrior-style sequel in the works!

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

One of the big films we here at AITH are big supporters of is directing team François Simard, Anouk Whissell, and Yoann-Karl Whissell's TURBO KID. And today we hear from producer Ant Timpson that an ambitious ROAD WARRIOR-style sequel is in the works!

Timpson tells Bloody Disgusting’s Boo Crew Podcast about TURBO KID 2:

Well look, that’s been a long time coming. There’s a script for Turbo Kid 2. We want to make it, that’s all I can say. It’s really a case of finding the backers [financiers] because it’s way more ambitious. It’s kind of like Road Warrior‘s step up from Mad Max. Its sort of that kind of ambition…you needs a little bit more money than we had for the first film. They want to make that a dream project.


Set in the post-apocalyptic year of 1997, this retro-futuristic and nostalgic tribute to 80's action-adventure films follows 

An orphaned teenager who goes on an adventure to save his female-robot companion from the hands of an evil warlord who controls the only water supply.

TURBO KID was written and directed by François Simard, Anouk Whissell, and Yoann-Karl Whissell. Ant Timpson produced with Benoit Beaulieu, Anne-Marie Gélinas, and Tim Riley, It stars Munro Chambers, Laurence Leboeuf, Edwin Wright, Aaron Jeffery, and Michael Ironside. Epic Pictures released it back on August 28, 2015. The film holds a 90% approval rating over on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: "A nostalgic ode to kids' movies of yesteryear, Turbo Kid eyes the past through an entertaining — albeit surprisingly gory — postmodern lens."
