Perhaps there was no bigger news for millennials than the announcement that Paramount’s was ending production good burger 2, the long-awaited sequel to the iconic 1990s comedy good burger, was in progress. Now, a series of photos courtesy of CBR show a first look at the film’s upcoming restaurant.
The photos were taken by CBR on set Good burger 2 in North Providence, Rhode Island. They depict an abandoned Friendly’s restaurant that has been converted into the iconic home of the Good Burger. Although the sequel is set 26 years after the original, the restaurant set appears to have retained some of its 1990s charm, but has been updated to give it a more modern flair. The set is complete with graffiti of Good Burger and the famous Ed’s Sauce! on the windows, with stickers on the sides of the restaurant highlighting some of the menu offerings. However, CBR reported that the interior of the restaurant was empty, so it’s possible that more of this particular set will need to be built during the film’s production.
While details on the film’s plot are still scant, Good burger 2 will once again play the leading role Kenan Thompson And Kel Mitchell in their iconic roles as Dex and Ed. A log line from the film states: “Dexter Reed is out of luck after another of his inventions failed. Ed welcomes Dex to Good Burger with open arms and gives him his old job back. With a new crew working at Good Burger, Dex hatches a plan to get back on his feet, but unfortunately again jeopardizes the fate of Good Burger.” No other cast members have been announced, but he will direct the film Phil Traill based on a screenplay by Kevin M. Kopelow And Heide Seifert. The writing couple are known for their collaborations with Thompson and Mitchell and also wrote the original film in 1997.
