One of the greatest comedic shows to ever hit HBO might be heading for the big screen. Hell yes, I'm talking a Mr. Show movie! I'm not sure there are words to describe how incredibly awesome Mr. Show is and was, but if you, like me, were a big fan, then you know exactly what I'm talking about.
For those that have never experienced Mr. Show, picture Saturday Night Live on crack ... and with only two main stars. Created by David Cross and Bob Odenkirk, essentially, Mr. Show consists of a series of skits which all sort of transition into one another through a common thread. Back in 2003, a Mr. Show spin-off movie called Run Ronnie Run went straight to DVD. Based off one of Cross' characters from the show, the film received mixed reviews, though was later disowned by Cross and Odenkirk.
As far as a new movie goes, Odenkirk recently told Premiere magazine he's down for another go-round, noting a Mr. Show movie has been written by both him and Cross. He says, "That's really my kind of humour, and David and I are good friends and want to work together again. Hopefully, we'll get to make the movie in the fall". Will it be another spin-off? Will it be an hour and a half of sketch comedy? Either way, I'm so down.
