Comedy legend Mel Brooks has done it again. The “Blazing Saddles” filmmaker has produced a sequel to his 1981 hit “History Of The World, Part I.” Naturally, the new Hulu event is “History Of The World, Part II”.
It highlights a star-studded cast of comedic talents taking on historic personalities. Among the revealed bits are Wanda Sykes as Harriet Tubman, Fred Armisen as Sigmund Freud and, perhaps most intriguingly, Jack Black as a musical theatre-ballad-singing Joseph Stalin.
Other stars appearing include Seth Rogen, Josh Gad, Johnny Knoxville, JB Smoove, Richard Kind and Sarah Silverman. Hulu is billing “History Of The World Part II” as a “four-night event.” It is set to launch on March 6th.
