Matthew Lillard Officially Not Involved in 'SLC Punk!' Sequel

Matthew Lillard seems just as surprised as everyone else that "SLC Punk!" is getting a sequel all these years later.

Earlier this week, writer/director James Merendino announced that his 1998 film, about two punks living on the edge of society in conservative Salt Lake City, would return for a second go-round. In the announcement, he said that the new movie, "SLC Punk 2: Punk's Dead," would return original cast members Devon Sawa, Michael Goorjian, Adam Pascal and James Duval. But Lillard, who played Stevo in the first film, was missing from that list, and now we know why:

Lillard, who later starred in the "Scooby Doo" movies and still lends his voice to the cartoons, has seen a revival of his career in recent years, including a role in the AMC drama "The Bridge" and his first project as a director, "Fat Kid Rules the World."
