Wet Hot fans, rejoice, because David Wain and Michael Showalter have something extra special coming out this fall. On Twitter today, Wain announced that he and Showalter will be releasing Wet Hot American Summer: The Annotated Screenplay. The book features a preface by Jesse Thorn as well as a foreward by Michael Ian Black. Here’s the official description:
At long last, this is the definitive Wet Hot American Summer book fans have been clamoring for! Screenwriters David Wain and Michael Showalter take pen to page and create a hilarious, behind-the-scenes annotated version of the original screenplay that launched a thousand Halloween costumes. They provide commentary on and insight into how and why they made the artistic decisions they did while writing and filming the movie that went on to become a true cult classic, as well as an ongoing Netflix series. The book will also feature reproduced ephemera from filming—photos, original (and scathing) reviews, AIM chat conversations, marked up script pages, and so much more. Written and curated by Wain and Showalter, this will be the must-have guide to all things Wet Hot.
The Annotated Screenplay isn’t out until October 9th, but it’s currently available for pre-order over at Amazon.
