Sorry I’m a bit late with this (I have one more update to do for you guys today, which I’m also late with) but things are crazy here as always, I’m thinking about hiring henchmen to help me out, lol!
You’ve probably been hearing this for awhile, I know I have, but the high and mighties (Chris Saunders and Dean DeBlois) at the How To Train Your Dragon franchise have been talking about it for awhile, and now it’s Jay’s turn to chime in on HTTYD 2 not being a sequel, but a second chapter:
“I’m going to be starting work on it this year, yeah,” Baruchel confirmed to MTV News during the “Freaks and Geeks” / “Undeclared” Reunion at the Paley Center in Los Angeles last weekend. He added that he knows the sequel’s story, too, as he’s already seen the script: “Yes I do. I know everything about it. I read it last week!”
Not only did Jay head out to an actual event yesterday (they’re getting rarer these days, aren’t they?) when he showed as announced at the 31rst Genie Awards to support his amazing film The Trotsky, but the film also walked away with two Genies!
Only one other film even registered a ripple, with Jacob Tierney’s The Trotsky sneaking into the mix with two Genies. One was for Tierney’s best original screenplay and one for the film’s featured song, Already Gone. The other 19 feature films which had earned at least one nomination were long gone when it was all over.
