Outlaw Johnny Black (2023) -- W/D/S: Michael Jai White

Black Dynamite 2 Planned As a Western Comedy?

Following the cult success of the 2009 blaxploitation spoof Black Dynamite, work is underway on a sequel with the plan being to switch characters and genres while retaining the original creative team. CraveOnline caught up with leading man and co-writer Michael Jai White on the red carpet to this week's Alex Cross and learned that the current plan is to approach the project as a western.

"We had discussed," says White, "and it looks like we're getting closer to the decision of something that would be an homage to 'Blazing Saddles'. [...] It's a western comedy in that spirit of Blazing Saddles, but you mix that with 'Buck and the Preacher'."

Isn't Tarantino already doing that with Django?

Re: Black Dynamite

Sounds awful, but I really liked the first movie, so we'll see what happens.

If you must do this please call it something else... or make new franchise.

Michael Jai White has such solid comic chops or these films, it makes me wish he'd spend less of his time appearing in B-movies starring other people.

I still haven't seen the first one but need to. I've coincidentally been on a real "Soul Cinema" bender recently, seeing all kinds of Blacksploitation films that I previously missed, and have also been revisiting a few old favs. Some of the better ones I've seen recently were Melinda, Hit Man and Dr. Black/Mr. Hyde. Love dat stuff!

The original Black Dynamite is quite possibly one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. I don't mind the change to Western (Blazing Saddles is still amazing to me) as long as it stays good. *Fingers crossed*

Well, I still don't love the Western idea but if it'll be spoofing films like Boss ****** then I'm down.

Seeing the first in theaters was one of the funniest experiences of my life.

So it isn't Black Dynamite 2... but it is the always rumored western film. I will retitle this thread since it follows the project history.

Even if it isn't BD2, I'm still excited for the movie. It looks to be in the same vein, obviously, and that's good enough for me.

I contributed to the indiegogo of this one. Wonder if I'll ever see my blu-ray I'm supposed to get.

THE OUTLAW JOHNNY BLACK is in theaters September 15!

Hell-bent on avenging the death of his father, Johnny Black vows to gun down Brett Clayton and becomes a wanted man in the process. He goes into hiding, posing as a preacher in a small mining town that's been taken over by a notorious Land Baron.

From the same team that made the 2009 cult classic Black Dynamite, The Outlaw Johnny Black stars Michael Jai White ("As Good as Dead"), Anika Noni Rose ("The Princess and the Frog"), Erica Ash ("We Have a Ghost"), Byron Minns ("Black Dynamite"), Kym Whitley ("Act Your Age"), and Tony Baker.

Written and directed by Michael Jai White, Samuel Goldwyn Films will release The Outlaw Johnny Black exclusively in theaters on September 15. Donovan De Boer, Michael Jai White, and Grant Gilmore are producers.
