Mel Brooks: Spaceballs Will Return

It's been 17 years since "Spaceballs" took aim at "Star Wars," but the Schwartz is still strong with writer/director Mel Brooks. Strong enough, in fact, that Brooks is penning a "Spaceballs" sequel.

Ain't It Cool News has a rundown on a few brief "Spaceballs" comments Brooks made to Playbill magazine: "... I'm writing myself back into the 'Spaceballs' sequel that I'm now writing, so you haven't seen the last of my face," Brooks says. "Why another 'Spaceballs'? It wouldn't feel right [to[ have anyone else play Yoghurt and the first one was the best experience I've had making a movie since 'Blazing Saddles.'"

Brooks says "Spaceballs 2" could arrive as early as next summer or as late as 2006. Whatever the date, we'll be watching for additional developments on our "Spaceballs" spotlight page. -- Mac Slocum
