Back in 2002, Michael Dowse, David Lawrence and Paul Spence put out an amusing little mockumentary called FUBAR, a tongue-in-cheek look at two Canadian metalheads just living life. Although I didn’t love the movie (the idea has been done before, and better), I do understand the appeal, and I can get behind it as an independent film and an interesting piece of Canadian culture. Dowse followed it up with It’s All Gone Pete Tong, another mockumentary about a DJ who goes completely deaf, which wasn’t quite as well-received. After doing a TV mini-series called The Foundation, they have decided to re-unite Terry and Deaner… that’s right, FUBAR 2 is currently in production and being planned for a Winter 2010 release!
Although my first reaction is to accuse them of going back to the well, I have to admit… the timing is perfect. With the success of Anvil! The Story of Anvil last year, a comedic look at goofy Canadian headbangers could really find an audience right about now. Not only that, but Dean is also now posting his thoughts on Twitter, and I realized that he reminds me a little of someone else… Kenny Fucking Powers baby! Not that there’s any real comparison between FUBAR and Eastbound and Down, of course. Are you a fan of FUBAR? For more information, stay tuned to the FUBAR 2 Production Blog.
