Re: That sequel to Strange Brew. How's it goin, eh? It's been a year since the ex-SCTV guy announced his production company Maple Palm Productions and a slate that included the return of brothers Bob and Doug McKenzie. It turns out Thomas is looking to film it here in the spring. "We've actually finished the script," says Thomas. "It took a year because Rick (Moranis) is in New York and I'm in L.A. and we got Paul Flaherty, Joe's brother, to help us. The script's about a bunch of losers who try to launch their homemade beer as a major brand and f--- everything up. "I sent it to Dan Aykroyd cuz there's a great part for a fast-talking insurance salesman in it, and he's interested." Getting funding may be easy since the original 1982 flick still does very good rental business. Not that Thomas and Moranis see any money, Thomas says. "We got zero from the videos, because MGM sold their library to Turner and Turner was bought by Warner. You could spend a million dollars auditing where the money went and never get a dime." firstname.lastname@example.org Andrew Palidwor Toronto, Ontario, Canada
