'Seriously' looks to lense during '70s' 2003 hiatus
This article was corrected on Apr. 16, 2002.Dude, you’re a star. Twentieth Century Fox is in final negotiations to ink producers Gil Netter and Wayne Rice and original scribe Philip Stark for a sequel to 2000’s “Dude, Where’s My Car?” Entitled “Seriously Dude, Where’s My Car?,” pic would follow the adventures of two sophomoric underachievers who — thanks to some particularly potent marijuana — are once more comedically denied the whereabouts of their ride. The decision seems obvious, at least on a financial level: The $14 million pic “Dude, Where’s My Car?” has grossed $73 million worldwide to date. The ICM-repped Stark, a former story editor on “That ’70s Show” will ink its sequel. If approved by his former ” ’70s Show” cohort Ashton Kutcher (and original topliner Seann William Scott), plan is for the pic to be lensed during next season’s hiatus in 2003. Production prexy Hutch Parker is overseeing the project. Netter most recently produced Colin Farrell starrer “Phone Booth” for the studio. Rice is producing and co-writing casino laffer “Chasing the Whale” and “Sonny Bright,” both co-penned with Gina Goldman; the Farrelly brothers are producing the latter. Philip Stark is repped by the Broder Kurland Webb Uffner Agency. Information was incorrect in Tuesday’s paper.
