The first volume debuted at this year’s Fantasia Fest and was given a one-night screening at London’s Prince Charles Cinema (where we gave it a glowing ★★★ review) and now, according to Bloody Disgusting, Troma allegedly has Return to Nuke ‘Em High Volume 2 already in post-production.
UPDATE: I have spoken with Asta Paredes and Lloyd Kaufman who have confirmed that they have started editing the movie. Although Kaufman also noted that they are still filming and are searching for cinemas to show the first volume.
“Return to Nuke ‘Em High Vol. One & Two, directed by Lloyd Kaufman, is a satirical sci-fi comedy event film with themes ripped straight from today’s headlines: the contamination and degradation of the world’s food supply, rampant bullying, love triumphing over prejudice and LGBT rights. The film, a redux of Troma’s 1986 Class of Nuke Em High is in the same vein as other classics such as Class of 1984, Rock ‘n’ Roll High School, and Carrie, but seen through the unique vision of Lloyd Kaufman and the Troma Team. Welcome to Tromaville High School where, unfortunately, the glee club has mutated into a vicious gang of Cretins. Chrissy and Lauren, two innocent lovers-bloggers, must fight not only the Cretins, mutants and monsters but also the evil Tromorganic Foodstuffs Conglomerate. Will they save Tromaville High School and the world?”
Return to Nuke ‘Em High Volume 2 stars Asta Paredes, Catherine Corcoran, Zac Amico, Vito Trigo, and Clay Von Carolwitz with cameos from Llyod Kaufman and The Angry Video Game Nerd, James Rolfe.
