Wet Hot American Summer is going where no movie flop has gone before -- and doing so with the help of a Star Trek star. The original movie pretty much opened and closed in July 2001, grossing less than $300,000 on a $1.8 million budget. But the comedy -- about the final day at a Jewish summer camp in 1981 -- emerged as a cult sensation over the years, in part because so many of its actors went on to become major TV and film stars -- including Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Margeurite Moreau, Paul Rudd, Zak Orth, Christopher Meloni, Molly Shannon, Ken Marino, Joe Lo Truglio, Michael Ian Black, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Judah Friedlander, Samm Levine and some guy named Bradley Cooper.
Well, most of those folks will be back for an upcoming 8-part limited series for Netflix, to be called Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, and they'll be joined by Jon Hamm, Richard Schiff, Kristen Wiig, Jayma Mays, Jason Schwartzman, John Slattery, Josh Charles, Randall Park, Lake Bell and Star Trek's current Captain James T. Kirk, Chris Pine. Wet Hot American Summer will debut this summer.
