It’s been nearly twenty years since 20th Century Fox released the comedy film, “John Tucker Must Die”, which is 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 over the weekend, took part in a reunion panel at the Epic Cons Chicago event and Jesse Metcalfe revealed that there has been some work done on a sequel.

“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.”

Jesse also confirmed that he hasn’t seen the screenplay of the sequel himself but “can’t wait to read it.”

Arielle Kebbel also added that she had a hand in creating the new script and that it “does involve all of the OG cast.”   She also explained to the crowd that Metcalfe’s character “may or may not get a chance to change” his ways, “which would be very exciting”.

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.

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