It's no wonder that Goon bombed on release. The story of a kind but dim-witted bouncer who finds purpose as a minor league brawler made for a tough sell anywhere outside of hockey-mad Canada.

But in the four years since it was released the film found slow-burn success via DVD and streaming services and has emerged as a true cult classic, sourcing a thousand quotes and earning recognition as one of the finest cinematic portrayals of hockey on celluloid.

Now the star of the film says the long-rumored sequel is finally about to go before the lens.

Seann William Scott, who played Doug Glatt in the original, revealed the plans Tuesday in a Reddit Ask Me Anything session. And it sounds like he’s working extra hard to prepare for this one.

"I did a bit of fight training for GOON. For GOON 2, I've been fight-training for the past month, and next month in May I start working with an MMA fighter, and then some skating (obviously, a lot of skating). We start shooting GOON 2 in mid-June, and if everybody does their jobs and we execute the amazing script that Jay and his co-writer wrote, the movie would be wicked."

Writer and co-star Jay Baruchel also will be back for the sequel, as will director Michael Dowse.
