HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA - Sources in Hollywood say George Lucas, award winning director and co-writer of American Graffiti, a coming-of-age movie set in 1962, and released in 1973, is currently planning another sequel.
The newest sequel, titled, American Grafitti: 40th Reunion, will feature the same stars as the first block-buster hit: Richard Dreyfuss, Cindy Williams, Ron Howard, John Martin Smith, Candy Clark, MacKenzie Phillips, Harrison Ford, and Paul LeMat. Unfortunately, Wolfman Jack, the gravelly voiced Disc Jockey, died in 1995.
It is reported that Lucas has even located the original cars used in the movie: the '32 Deuce Coup, the '55 Chevy, the '58 Impala, the '56 T-bird, the Pharaohs' 1951 Mercury and the '61 Galaxie Cop Car.
The movie's location, Modesto, California, where Lucas grew up, has changed a bit since the he was a teenager there in the 1950's, but the new sequel will be set in the year 2000. Since the classmates will be attending their 40th class reunion, the movie will feature a soundtrack of mixed hits from the 50's up through the late 90's.
Oh, and yes, Suzanne Somers is supposed to appear again as the alluring blonde in the white T-Bird, which surprisingly, she still is.
