It was reported back in August that a prequel to the classic baseball film The Sandlot is on the way. Now, according to the original director, David Mickey Evans a sequel series is heading our way, and is in full swing already. Evans was recently on the recently revealed the on Cooperstown Kurt’s baseball podcast The Rain Delay, that he has sold a pitch for a television series sequel to the original movie.
But the news didn’t stop there. He also announced that the series would bring back the entire original cast of the film, it will take place in 1984, the boys are all now around 33 years old, and each of them have kids of their own.
It also looks as the series has a home already, on an unspecified streaming service. Smart money would say that since The Sandlot was a FOX property, and Disney owns fox now, we might see it end up on the Disney+ service.
The original film starred Mike Vitar, Patrick Renna, Chauncey Leopardi , Victor DiMattia, Marty York, Shane Obedzinski , Grant Gelt, and Brandon Quintin Adams. A lot of these stars don’t act anymore so it’s very interesting to see them come back.
My only question is will we see Marley Shelton as Wendy Peffercorn again? She is married to Squints still, isn’t she??
