What's a hockey enforcer to do if he's unable to throw punches anymore?
Sean William Scott reprises his role as Doug "The Thug" Glatt in the forthcoming sequel to the cult comedy about a semi-pro Canadian hockey star who uses his fists, rather than his skills, to win games. This time around, Doug is facing a potentially career-ending shoulder injury. But with a baby on the way and a house to pay off, Doug is left with no other choice but to ask his former rival -- now-retired and veteran enforcer Ross "The Boss" Rhea (Liev Schreiber) -- for tips on punching with his left fist.
The film, also starring Wyatt Russell, Alison Pill, Elisha Cuthbert, Callum Keith Rennie, and Jason Jones, marks the directorial debut of Canadian comic actor Jay Baruchel, who not only co-wrote the original film and this sequel but is also back playing Doug's obnoxious best friend, Pat.
"Goon: Last of the Enforcers" doesn't have an official U.S. release date. It, however, is currently slated to open in Canada on March 17th. In the meantime, you can check out a newly released trailer, above.
It's a new day for the Halifax Highlanders. A pro lockout has reunited old teammates and brought a crew of new players to the bench; notably missing from the line-up, however, is everyone's favorite enforcer and heart of the team, Doug "The Thug" Glatt. Sidelined after one too many hits and now married with a baby on the way, Doug is hanging up his skates and settling into life as an insurance salesman. But when Doug's nemesis, Anders Cain, is made captain of the Highlanders and new ownership threatens to tear his team apart, Doug is compelled back into action.
Ignoring the wishes of wife Eva, Doug heads to the rink, discovering an unlikely training partner in fellow retired enforcer and one-time arch rival, Ross "The Boss" Rhea. Together with grit, passion and unrivaled loyalty, they will grind out one last chance to do what they do best ... protect their team.
