Cameron Crowe Hints at Pearl Jam Documentary, SAY ANYTHING Sequel

Cameron CroweOne of the biggest highlights at the Television Critics Association press tour’s first week was a panel discussion with Cameron Crowe about his "American Masters" documentary, "Pearl Jam Twenty," which will air on PBS on October 21 after a theatrical run starting in September.

It's just that Crowe's 45-minute appearance was so entertaining -- and not in the breezy, "look at me!" and "ooh, I just revealed a delicious tidbit!" kind of way that is typical of massive promotional events like Comic-Con and the Television Critics Association summer press tour.

The director discussed his current project, which PBS screened "Pearl Jam Twenty" for critics at a late-night function on Friday.

Even with his longtime personal connection to the band, he included footage in the film that the band would have loved to have seen quashed, like Vedder's "perfectly hideous" performance and intoxicated stage rantings at a 1992 Sony bash celebrating the release of "Singles."

Crowe also commented on a possible sequel to his 1989 hit movie, “Say Anything…”.

" the only thing that I've written that I would consider doing that with," said Crowe.  "And I've thought about it from time to time, and talked about it with John Cusack once. This is the only story that, there might be another chapter to that at some point."  He added that, if he does ever do such a sequel, "we have to keep the guy that Lloyd Dobler has to drive home from the prom party -- he's got to come back."

Lloyd Dobler (John Cusack), as of yet, has not dusted off his boom-box.
