It actually holds up — folks nonetheless watch it, highschool youngsters come as much as me telling me that they watched it for the primary time and the way they liked it. It’s labored its method into being considered as one of many higher highschool films that’s on the market. I’m so petrified of subtracting from it in any method with a foul sequel or spinoff that I’d by no means do it. I’ve so few precise good accomplishments that I’m horrified to fuck with those I’ve.”
Hill is presently 38 years previous, so his pitch for Superbad 2 would put us off till 2064. Within the meantime, he not too long ago co-starred in Adam McKay's Don't Look Up as an advisor to President Meryl Streep.
