Dust Off That BMX – ‘Turbo Kid 2’ is Confirmed!
Well, just like that, the sequel to Turbo Kid has been made official. I was just talking about the possibility of a full-on prequel, but I’m just as happy for a sequel, how about you? So, the guys over at Joblo have announced that Téléfilm Canada and SODEC have given the sequel the go-ahead.
Details are slim, but it is said to be a direct sequel which will take place right where the action ended in the original film.
It is believed that the original directing trio of Anouk Whissell, François Simard, and Yoann-Karl Whissell will return.
While there has been no casting announcements, both Munro Chambers and Laurence Leboeuf have expressed interest in reprising their roles in the sequel.
So, guys, you ready to return to the wasteland? If you haven’t seen this one yet, do yourself a favor and check this sucker out, it truly is brilliant.
In the original film, “an orphaned teenager called The Kid scavenges the Wasteland searching for relics from a better time (the 80s). During one of his expeditions he meets Apple, a mysterious girl with a rather large secret. As their relationship deepens, they accidentally run afoul of Zeus, the self-proclaimed leader of the Wasteland.
Zeus, a sadistically droll maniac who murdered The Kid’s parents, now controls the Wasteland’s most precious commodity: fresh water. When Zeus’ gang kidnaps Apple, The Kid joins forces with Frederick, the laconic leader of the legendary Arm-Wrestling Clan. Armed with little more than blind faith and an ancient turbo-charged weapon, The Kid must fulfill his ultimate destiny: destroy Zeus, avenge his parents’ death and get the girl of his dreams.”
