To this day ‘CONEHEADS’ is one of my most favorite SNL sketches turned Movie out of the several that we have had. (‘Night at The Ruxberry’ being another absolute fav)
I cant recall if any actual talks of a sequel have ever happened. But Now would be a great opprotunity for Dan Aykroyd and Co. To take advantage.
“How would a ConeHeads 2 go?” You ask.. HERE’S HOW!
Beldar (Aykroyd) and Family are flourishing. Things have been going great. But, In this new day and age Beldar finds himself still struggling to fit in with Earth and its modern times. Add his new found role as a Grandfather to his millennial Grandkids, things get tougher.
Start the film in 2016, right at the offset of the presidential election.. Beldar votes for Trump (que puns and jokes there) and boom..
Trump is elected and immigration is of course his first agenda.
I would have Alec Baldwin play Trump in this, because, lets face it.. He’s awesome!
And it would be hilarious. Someone Trump hires finds out that Beldar and his family are not legal immagrints and that their records were falsified back in ’93. Also include that the Emporor of the coneheads discovers that Beldar deceived them and a full scale invasion ensues.
The rest writes itself. With the current political and social climate of today. A Coneheads 2 could take on those issues in a clever and hilarious way. It doesnt have to be preachy or anything.. But it could lighten things up a bit! Poke a little fun at america at its current state.
With Chris Farley long gone. (Sadley)
I would cast Josh Gad
As the husband to Connie Conehead.
Bring back a lot of the original cast. Including Sinbad and David Spade, and keep the budget to a 10 to 15 million.. Heck! It can go straight to Netflix if they want to. That would be just as cool. And they could have a massive comedy hit!
Anywho.. Thats just my thoughts on the matter..
HEY! Mr. Aykroyd.. Get started on this PLEASE!!
Until Next time folks.. Peace Out!
