Earlier this year, it was revealed that 20th Century Studios was developing a sequel to the comedy film, “John Tucker Must Die”, which was about some womanizing teenager’s ex-girlfriends, who set him up to fall in love with a girl. Together, they seek revenge and want to see him go through the pain of a breakup.

The film starred Jesse Metcalfe, Sophia Bush and Arielle Kebbel, who revealed earlier this year at a reunion panel at the Epic Cons Chicago event that there was a script, with Jesse saying:

“I’ve heard rumors of this script — there’s a script.  Apparently it’s amazing. I’d definitely love to be a part of it.”


On this week’s episode of the Podcrushed podcast, Brittany Snow and Penn Badgley, who starred in the original film, revealed that they had heard there is a sequel in development, but they have not been contacted about it.  With Brittany saying:

“I don’t know if you’ve had a call, but I’ve gotten no call.  Yeah, I’ve had no call, no.  I have been talking to Arielle about this for years because she was trying to get it off the ground, but I didn’t know what happened. … That was the last I had heard of it, was that she was trying to make it happen, and I guess she did? I will read whatever — they’ve worked really hard.”

The original film was released in cinemas in 2006 and went on to make $68 million worldwide, but on a budget of $18 million, so if the sequel could keep its costs down, 20th Century Studios might be able to make money on the film, with a theatrical release, rather than a straight to streaming release. 

It’s important to note that Disney hasn’t confirmed a sequel to “John Tucker Must Die” is happening, and just because there is a script doesn’t mean it’s actually going to be made and the comments from Brittany Snow and Penn Badgley, highlights that this might not come to anything.

“John Tucker Must Die” is now available to stream on Hulu and Hulu On Disney+ in the United States and on Disney+ in many countries, including Australia, Canada, and the UK.
