We should take director Simon West‘s offhand comment about a Con Air sequel in space with a grain of salt, but we should ALSO take it extremely seriously because we just want it so damn bad. West said that he’d be up for revisiting the story if “it was completely turned on its head. Con Air In Space, for example. A studio version where they’re all robots or the convicts are reanimated as super-convicts, or where the good guys are bad guys and the bad guys are good guys.”

Well, the first one was pretty ridiculous, so I don’t know if we need to consciously make it more ridiculous. I mean, just casting Nic Cage in ANYTHING these days is de facto over-the-top behavior.

However, let’s not rule out a return to a plane (or spaceship) full of fugitives. After all, as the A.V. Club points out, Simon West was the guy who directed the Rick Astley video for “Never Gonna Give You Up,” so his ridiculousness knows no bounds.

Only time will tell whether or not we’ll get a sequel to Con-Air that we don’t actually need but it would be nice to have. While we wait, we have this awesome Con-Air rap tribute to tide us over. Sketch group Elephant Larry and Jeff Solomon get mad cul-de-sac cred for sampling LeAnn Rimes and making a pretty thorough dissection of the film.

Then again, Con-Air isn’t exactly virgin territory for them..

The explosions...huge. The concept... ridiculous. The hairpieces... outlandish. The dialogue... terrible. In other words, it was really, really awesome.

I really didn’t want to like Con Air when it was released back in 1997 but how can anyone dislike Con Air? The explosions were huge, the concept was ridiculous, the hairpieces outlandish, and the dialogue was terrible. In other words, it was really, really awesome. Morbid curiosity alone would get me to the theater for a sequel.

And that’s exactly what Simon West wants. While making the rounds for his latest The Mechanic (which isn’t half-bad by the way), he let it slip that he’d like to helm a sequel.

Con Air 2 I’d like to do. It’d be great. It’s a matter of getting everybody together. There’s so many people involved and it’s about getting everybody to agree. But I’m going to bring it up to Nic. I’m going to put a bug in his ear about it. If the two of us want to do it, we’ll go after the others.”

I’m not sure who the others are considering all the bad guys either get shot, impaled, run over by a plane, have their arms chopped off, set on fire, blown up, electrocuted, or have their heads pounded to goo by a pile-driver. John Malkovich‘s character could have had a brother though. Whatever. Just get this thing made. (Crave Online)
