The Kidd here...
It's a shame that IDIOCRACY never get the love and respect from Fox that it deserved with a full theatrical run before the studio buried the film. Instead, fans of Mike Judge were left to seek out and find the film that's way before its time and brilliant in its depiction of where society is headed, and through word of mouth and DVD, it's been able to find an appreciative audience. If you were to watch IDIOCRACY every day for the next month, the humor would still hold up, while, at the same time, the social commentary would get sadder and sadder as we got closer and closer to it becoming a bigger part of the real world.
While it would be interesting to see what President Not Sure is up to these days, in trying to cure the world's problems with water, like from the toilet, and whether or not any sequels to ASS: THE MOVIE ever got made, the closest thing we'll ever get to a sequel looks to be in the works centered around Terry Crews' character from the film - the now former President of the States, former porn star and former five-time Ultimate Smackdown professional wrestling champion Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho.
In an interview with Movieline, Crews revealed that, after plenty of persistence to possibly revist the character once again, he and Mike Judge are finally working on something of the sort.
"Me and Mike [Judge] are talking right now with Fox about some Camacho stuff. We literally met with Fox a week ago. It’s so cool... We’re going to see what it becomes, but we got approval from Fox to do some stuff. We’re going to start off on the internet and do some small interstitials with Camacho... We’ve just got to gauge the interest and Fox wants to start slow… you’ve got to let it take off."
Who knows if it'll take place before IDIOCRACY or after, but what does it matter? Anything more from this view of our future is fine by me, so that makes at least one viewer they've got in the bag.
And, if you haven't seen IDIOCRACY by now, you might want to correct that immediately.
