Dude, Where’s My Car? sequel gets an update from Seann William Scott

American Pie’s Seann William Scott is asked, “Dude, where’s my sequel?” while the actor promotes The Wrath of Becky.

In the year 2000, two of the big rising names in teen movies partnered up for a stoner buddy comedy in the vein of Bill & Ted and Dumb and Dumber. Ashton Kutcher, hot off the popularity of That 70’s Show, and American Pie‘s scene-stealing star Seann William Scott, would play the simple-minded but lovable Jesse and Chester in Dude, Where’s My Car? In Dude, Where’s My Car?, the duo would embark on a mystery after one morning, they discover their car is missing.

Seann William Scott is currently making a villainous turn in the horror film The Wrath of Becky, and the star sits down to talk the film with ScreenRant when he’s asked about what happened to a sequel to Dude, Where’s my Car? and if there could still be a chance of one.

Scott replies, “No, we’ve never talked about it. You know what, I always hear about it when I would do Conan, his show. He would always bring it up, he was like, ‘Guys, can you make that Seriously, Dude, Where’s My Car?‘ I’m like, ‘We have to for you, man.’ But I think the title alone is hilarious enough to make the movie, but I would love to work with Ashton again. If there was a like a super funny, weird, f—-d up script, for sure. But yeah, I haven’t heard anything about it. I haven’t thought about [a story], but like either exactly the same, or things have gone bad for them. Maybe my character got fat — not that that means bad things, you can be fat and have things go good for you. But just maybe it’s gone downhill for him in every way. I think that would be fun to see those two guys where it’s like, again, something happened, maybe it’s like they hadn’t seen each other in so long, and they’re at the reunion and they get super f—-d up again, and then are like, ‘Holy s–t, we lost the car,’ and it’s a whole new set, ‘What did we do? We have to retrace our steps.’ I don’t know, do you have any ideas?”

Dude, Where’s My Car? wasn’t a hit with critics, but it did become a success at the box office with a $100 million dollar gross on a $13 million budget. It sent Scott’s comedic star even higher and launched Kutcher’s comedy film career. The movie had developed a cult following ever since, and while similar movies like Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle would garner follow-ups. For one reason or another, one just never manifested for this one. The Hangover would also come along and become a huge hit as a retracing-steps-of-the-night-before comedy and would get two sequels.

You can see Scott in The Wrath of Becky when the film is released this Friday.
