After more than a decade it looks like David Wain & Michael Showalter’s Wet Hot American Summer follow-up They Came Together is finally going to be made, if Variety is to be trusted (and, really, can they???). Much like Wet Hot took on 80s summer camp flicks, this one has rom-coms in its crosshairs. And, much like Wet Hot, They Came Together will star Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler, and also likely the rest of The State and Zak Orth and A.D. Miles and Elizabeth Banks and Mather Zickel and Nina Hellman (not that we’re complaining. In fact, we’re crossing our fingers).
You can see a very brief, very blurry clip from the They Came Together read through at this year’s SF Sketchfest here, or, instead, watch this iconic Rudd clip from Wet Hot. The choice is yours.
We’re starting the campaign for a Tom Hanks-Meg Ryan cameo now.
