If you kick around online a bit today, you’ll likely see news confirming that Spaceballs is making a comeback on the heels of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Each reports cites an interview between Mel Brooks and Adam Carolla on the latter’s Take A Knee podcast from earlier in the year, tossing in a pullquote or two from another interview in Parade magazine. It’s the same news that was reported in February which garnered a lot of excitement for the return of Dark Helmet and Lone Starr, and still is. And Brooks essentially said the film is a money-maker for one big reason:

“And I’m thinking now, if I said, if I did a movie that came out right after Star Wars comes out, you know, maybe a couple of months later, Spaceballs 2: The Search for More Money, I’d have a big weekend, you know, no matter what, even if it fell on its ass and you know, didn’t get that money back.”
