Bad news for any Boogie Nights sequels and/or Mark Wahlberg's The Touch 2012: Boogie Nights writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson says fictional porn star Dirk Diggler is probably dead.
I wonder how many of these characters would even still be alive? Probably a few of them, but I fear that most of them might be dead. I doubt Dirk Digger's still alive. He'd be probably gone. I couldn't see him making it.
So, good bye, Dirk. Probably.
Good news for Burt Reynolds, though: Anderson added he "can see Burt Reynolds' character Jack Horner still going on, though," so I guess that follow-up spin-off is hypothetically still on the table. Though, really, isn't The Adventures of Alfred Molina and Firecracker Guy what we're after here?
Rest in penis.
