Did you know they're making a Forrest Gump 2?  I wonder what else there is to tell...

Wasn't there another book based on Forrest Gump's relationship with his son? That could be it, but I kinda think the time has paased for a new movie.


Ok, this is kind of funny, but today at work a book caught my eye that I've probably seen a thousand times. It's called Gump & Co. and I never thought much of it until I read this thread because there is NO WAY that they would have wrote a second Forrest Gump book! But, sure enough, I read the back of Gump and Co. and the story does continue. Here's the gist of it: Forrest is flat broke after his shrimpboatin' business went under, and so he ends up doing all of these odd jobs to support himself and Forrest Jr. He somehow gets into professional or "championship" football, but "lady luck is a fickle mistress" and eventually Forrest ends up selling fake encyclopedias door to door. He eventually gets caught up in an "explosive bit of hog farming", tries to sell "New Coke"  and helps destroy the Berlin Wall.

So overall it sounds just fantastic. a-hard-days-night-paul-1

Awww, I had no interest in reading either book, but I thought I heard somewhere that the second book was about Forrest and his relationship with his freakishly smart son, and maybe I was hoping the famous moments in pop culture he creates while blissfully ignorant of them wouldn't happen here.  a-hard-days-night-john-7
