Pauly Shore was celebrating the 29th anniversary of the popular comedy series Encino Man over the holiday weekend by revealing he is apparently ready for a follow-up. In a new Instagram post, Shore shared an old photo of himself with co-star Brendan Fraser on the set of Encino Man where he asked fans to “hit up Disney+ and tell them myself, Brendan, and Sean [Astin] are ready for the sequel.” You can check out the post below!
Encino Man was directed by Les Mayfield in his directorial debut and premiered in 1992. Written by George Zaloom and Shawn Schepps, the movie revolves around two high school outcasts from Encino, Los Angeles, California, who discover a caveman frozen in a block of ice. After thawing him out, the teenagers introduce the caveman to modern life while he in turn teaches the teens about actually enjoying life.
The comedy film also starred Mariette Hartley and Richard Masur along with Shore, Fraser, and Astin.
Encino Man initially received negative reviews but was a box-office hit, earning $40.7 million globally from a $7 million budget.
