One of the more pleasant surprises of the year was Seann William Scott’s turn in the Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg-penned hockey comedy “Goon.” The Canuck laffer has spawned something of a cult, with the movie being a favorite in some corners of the internet, in addition to it doing strong business north of the border. Now it looks like we’ll get to see the continuing adventures of the Halifax Highlanders on the big screen.

Good projects never really die, but sometimes it takes a bit of time for the right set of circumstances to come along to make them happen.

The project ultimately never came together, but it has found new life with two very able actors.

But nevertheless, go on wide release it has, and The Playlist was there to check it out.

Says The Film Is "Raging Bull On Ice"While the film world will turn their attention to Cannes tomorrow when the full line-up for the festival is revealed, immediately afterword, the films that aren't mentioned will be pegged for premieres this fall at Venice, Telluride and TIFF, with a whole new round of speculation surely kicking in.

Generally, when a film sits around as long as "Take Me Home Tonight" (formerly known as "Kids In America") has (filming wrapped way back in 2007), the perception is that it's a road apple. But as Topher Grace related in December, it was actually the film's wanton approach to drugs that caused the hold up.
