Alicia Silverstone up for ‘Blast From the Past’ sequel with Brendan Fraser – Variety

It’s been 24 years since “Blast From the Past” hit theaters, and star Alicia Silverstone is set for a sequel with Oscar winner Brendan Fraser.

During a “Clueless” reunion panel at ’90s Con, the actress answered a fan question about whether she would ever revisit the film.

“With Brendan? I would do anything with Brendan. It was so much fun,” Silverstone said during Sunday’s panel in Hartford, Conn. “I just saw Brendan after he won his Oscar and he’s so sweet. He spoke in his speech about how we all go through this really hard time and you have to grow and it’s part of life that you struggle and then look what happened to him! So yes, I am happy to do that.”

The romantic comedy was released in 1999, starring Fraser, Silverstone, Christopher Walken, Sissy Spacek and Dave Foley. It focuses on a 35-year-old man (Fraser) who spent his entire life in a shelter built by his father (Walken). When he emerges into the modern world, he meets Eve (Silverstone), who opens his eyes to a whole new life.

Silverstone attended the Vanity Fair Oscars party on March 12, as did Fraser, who won the Academy Award earlier in the evening for her role in Darren Aronofsky’s “The Whale.” In the film, he portrayed Charlie, a 600-pound English teacher trying to save his relationship with his estranged daughter (portrayed by Sadie Sink).

“I started in this business 30 years ago, things didn’t come easy to me, but there was a facility that I didn’t appreciate at the time until it stopped. I just want to say thank you for this recognition,” said Fraser in his acceptance speech. “It couldn’t have been done without my cast. It’s been like I’ve been on a diving expedition, and the air on the line to the surface is monitored by some people in my life like my sons.”
