Danielle Harris would love to return in The Last Boy Scout 2 or not tell Mom Restart
Hollywood has been falling back on ideas, reboots, and sequels for some time back to the ’80s and’ 90s, and now Danielle Harris has declared her desire for a sequel to the 1991 buddy-action comedy The last boy scout. In fact, it sounds like Harris was a huge fan of ’90s cinema and hopes that some franchises will resurrect from that particular decade at some point.
“I mean, God, to be able to come back and like The Last Boy Scout 2, I mean if there was only one I would be blown away. That’s another character I just loved, but I mean, listen to, I have to come back on Halloween and I have to come back to Roseanne now, I think they are doing a remake of Don’t Tell Mom [the Babysitter’s Dead]. I’ve heard rumors, not that I wasn’t asked, but that would be interesting. There isn’t a role that I wouldn’t like to repeat, at least the 1990s. The older stuff, maybe not so much, but the 90s stuff for sure. “
Danielle Harris starred in The Last Boy Scout as Darian Hallenbeck, the daughter of Bruce Willis’ private investigator Joe Hallenbeck. Released in 19991 and directed by the late Tony Scott and written by Shane Black (Lethal Weapon, The Nice Guys). The stars of the Last Boy Scout play Bruce Willis, Damon Wayans, Chelsea Field, Noble Willingham and Taylor Negron.
The story revolves around Willis’ Joe, a once top intelligence agent who is now a gruff private investigator. His final appearance is Protecting a Pole Dancer (Halle Berry), but when she is murdered he reluctantly teams up with her boyfriend Jimmy Dix (Damon Wayans), an ex-quarterback with a gambling problem, and the two pursue their killers . It doesn’t take long before they come across a conspiracy by a well-known soccer tycoon (Noble Willingham) and uncover a conspiracy between politicians and the corrupt NFL team owner.
While The Last Boy Scout wasn’t particularly well received by critics at the time (it currently owns only 47% of Rotten Tomatoes), the film has since achieved dedicated cult status as that, thanks to Willis’ quintessentially grumpy hero and Willis and Wayans chemistry mismatched pair. However, the film had its critical admirers. Legendary critic Roger Ebert gave The Last Boy Scout three out of four stars, calling it “an excellent example of what it is: brilliant, skillful, cynical, clever, extremely corrupt and extremely misogynistic.” Action thriller. “
Whether The Last Boy Scout warrants a sequel is up for debate, though it would undoubtedly not be too difficult to find a reason to bring Hallenbeck and Dix back together after all these years, but audiences really have to see Bruce Willis return for another sleepy performance and possibly tarnish the iconic legacy of the original?
Don’t tell mom the babysitter is dead The restart was announced last summer. Billie Woodruff, director of the beauty salon, is set to direct and cast a diverse cast of new emerging actors. Danielle Harris played Christina Applegate’s younger sister in the original cult comedy. If someone returns from the first it is expected to be cameos only.
With more sequels like Lethal Weapon, Die Hard and Bad Boys, we certainly can’t rule out that The Last Boy Scout will get the green light soon. This comes to us courtesy of Comicbook.com.
