Spaceballs 2: The Search For More Money Possibilities

On February 6th, 2015[7], Mel Brooks was on Adam Carolla’s Take A Knee[10] podcast[9] to confirm that Spaceballs is in the early phases of development and he's hoping to potentially start filming in early 2016, after the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in December 2015. Mel Brooks also hopes to bring the original cast back, minus John Candy and Joan Rivers due to their deaths.

On February 26th, 2016[8], Twitter user @JediNewsUK[11] tweeted teaser posters for Spaceballs 2: The Search for More Money that mysteriously appeared in a New York City subway station. Based on the comments on @JediNewsUK's tweet and no official updates from Mel Brooks, this is more likely a harmless prank to get the fans hyped up.
