THE QUACK ATTACK MIGHT BE BACK, JACK!
The star of the greatest sports trilogy of all time, “The Mighty Ducks,” Joshua Jackson says he’s not clowning around with making a fourth film like some cake eater, claiming he’d be shocked if any of his co-stars weren’t 100% on board, telling Vulture:
“I feel like a fourth film should happen, and if there was space for any of the original kids that come back and have a role, I would be surprised that anybody didn’t want to do it.”
Makes sense. Ducks fly together.
Producer Jordan Kerner said this isn’t the first time talks of a fourth Mighty Ducks film have transpired. However, the plot for the fourth movie is missing the straw that stirs the drink.
“It was going to be the death of [Coach] Gordon Bombay as an older man…the sort of look back at a moment in time when their coach came back to them and did something that changed their lives forever.”
Now, I’d be down with literally any storyline so long as the Quack Attack comes back, but I’d prefer to see a storyline involving villains from past Mighty Ducks movies joining up with the Ducks. Gunner Stahl joins forces with the Ducks as a first line center, Jack Riley comes on as head coach after a battle with alcoholism reinvigorated his love of the game, and all those rich boys from Eden Hall Academy round out the third and fourth lines for the Ducks as they run rough shot over some random beer league in Minneapolis.
Kerner says the studio has told him they’re very interested to make the fourth film, but they need to nail the storyline. Come on, Kerner, let’s do this. “D4: The Mighty Ducks, The Return of Captain Blood.”
