WATCH: So… there’s a sequel to Groundhog’s Day coming. But it’s not what you think

February 3rd, 2019 by Marc Comments

So, em, there’s a sequel on the way to Bill Murray’s timeless – ahem – classic, Groundhog Day.

But, sadly, it’s not what you think.

Or hope.

Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son is an in-development PS4 vitrtual reality adventure in which the son of  Phil Connors (Murray in the movie) goes to Punxsutawney and, you guessed it, goes through what his father did.

Honestly, the teaser below doesn’t have us too excited… but we thought you’d like to know about it.

Thoughts?

In Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son, you’ll play as the charming but arrogant Phil Connors Jr., who grew up in the shadow of his father — a man who spent a lifetime repeating a single day until he had made it perfect. But for Phil Jr., today is the worst day of his life. He’s trapped back home in Punxsutawney, the small town he thought he’d escaped, where he can’t even get a decent cappuccino — and he’s going to have to repeat the day over and over, until he learns the true value of friends and family.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
