First Look: James Merendino's Sequel 'Punk's Dead: SLC Punk! 2'
This past May, some surprising news arrived announcing a sequel to the 1998 cult classic SLC Punk! from writer and director James Merendino. Even more surprising was the return of Devon Sawa, Michael Goorjian, Adam Pascal and James Duval reprising their roles from the first film. Now some first look images from Punk's Dead: SLC Punk! 2 have surfaced, showing off Hannah Marks as Penny, Ben Schnetzer looking like a vampire as Ross, and the return of Heroin Bob in two different forms. The photos seem to capture the spirit of the original film, but will this be anything more than nostaliga? We'll see. Look!

Punk's Dead: SLC Punk! 2 is written and directed by James Merendino. 18 years later, Bob is still dead, but Trish from the Bong Shop, Stevo, Sean the Beggar, John the Mod, crazy Mark and tree hugger Mike are arrogantly saving the world for another generation…or they are at least trying. Get ready to find out what happened to your favorite characters, as we take you to the pivotal events in their lives since SLC Punk!. Holding it all together will be the misadventures and observations of one of their offspring, an eccentric kid named Ross, the Spawn of Heroin Bob and more. Hannah Marks and Ben Schnetzer join returning cast members Devon Sawa, Michael Goorjian, Adam Pascal and James Duval in the film that is currently shooting, has no official release date yet, but might be prime for a Sundance premiere. Stay tuned for more.
