It's a great week to be a fan of the gore-soaked '80s throwback sci-fi action comedy TURBO KID, as RKSS Films (directing trio Anouk Whissell, François Simard, and Yoann-Karl Whissell) have revealed that the sequel fans have been clamoring for has officially received a greenlight from Téléfilm Canada and SODEC.

Details on the sequel plans are being kept tightly under wraps, but Whissell did say that TURBO KID 2"will be a direct sequel to the first film", picking up right where the action left off.

TURBO KID stars Munro Chambers and Laurence Leboeuf have expressed eagerness to reprise the roles of The Kid and Apple in the sequel.

In case you haven't seen it yet, the first film told the following story:

"In a post-apocalyptic parallel future of 1997, an orphaned teenager called The Kid scavenges the Wasteland searching for relics from a better time (the 80s). During one of his expeditions he meets Apple, a mysterious girl with a rather large secret. As their relationship deepens, they accidentally run afoul of Zeus, the self-proclaimed leader of the Wasteland.

Zeus, a sadistically droll maniac who murdered The Kid's parents, now controls the Wasteland's most precious commodity: fresh water. When Zeus' gang kidnaps Apple, The Kid joins forces with Frederick, the laconic leader of the legendary Arm-Wrestling Clan. Armed with little more than blind faith and an ancient turbo-charged weapon, The Kid must fulfill his ultimate destiny: destroy Zeus, avenge his parents' death and get the girl of his dreams."

The fact that TURBO KID 2 is moving forward isn't the only news fans have to celebrate this week, as a TURBO KID prequel has been released online in the form of a music video. RKSS Films directed the video for the Le Matos / Pawws collaboration "No Tomorrow" and used it to tell a story that builds up to Apple's first meeting with The Kid.

The strangely gleeful Apple was seen to be in the company of a rotten corpse before she decided to join up with The Kid, and this video begins when that corpse was still a living, breathing man.
