Lloyd returns! Cameron Crowe may be doing Say Anything… sequel

Cameron Crowe may have decided to make the oft-rumoured “Say Anything” sequel.

A few months back the “We Bought a Zoo” director mentioned that if he was to sequelize any of his films – his filmography also boasts such titles as “Jerry Maguire”, “Singles”, “Elizabethtown”, “Almost Famous”, “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”, “Vanilla Sky” and the aforesaid Matt Damon starrer – it’d be his ode to blossoming romances and boom-boxes. Suggesting that it was merely an idea, and one he may have spoken to “Say Anything” star John Cusack about, Crowe managed to persuaded we fans (via a later interview with the IFC) that it’s probably something that’ll never happen and he hadn’t even considered pitching it.

But the ex-hubby of songstress Nancy Wilson sings a different tune today. Speaking to Vulture, the former Rolling Stone journalist cum filmmaker says something may be cooking.

Crowe hints that the film might be more of a spin-off than anything, even hinting at the possibility of structuring the film around Loren Dean’s ‘Joe’ character. Joe, you’ll recall, was the dimish ex-boyfriend of Lili Taylor’s character Corey, who wrote some 65 songs about her beloved former beau.

…[It’d be] something more with Lloyd’s character or one of the side characters…I love Joe — c’mon, man, Loren Dean? It’s almost like there’s an author that you like, and he brings back a character from a previous story. Like, Salinger, even. There’s a shadow of a previous story, but characters that you knew, sort of. And you go off on this tributary to another story with them. That’s how I would do a Say Anything sequel. I have ideas where Lloyd would be — but let me surprise you with it.

Crowe avoided answering a question on whether or not Lloyd Dobler (Cusack) would still be a kickboxer. Interestingly enough, nobody’s even brought up Ione Skye reprising Diane Court.

Whatever the case, Crowe told Vulture that in a year-and-a-half there may be news on “Say Anything 2″.
