The movies broke box-office records and are pretty much the only movies people will remember being released in 2023.

Not only were they released in the same year, but also on the same weekend and leading up to their release the internet was filled with 'Barbenheimer' memes and jokes.

There were even recommendations on how to watch both movies on the same day.

Just when you thought it was over, 'Barbenheimer' fever is far from over.

According to The Hollywood Reporter a low-budget film, which will be a combination of the two original movies.

Charles Band, a producer and director known for his low-budget B-movie horrors, has confirmed that he is currently working on the official 'Barbenheimer' movie.

The story follows Dr Bambi J Barbenheimer, a scientist doll who is horrified by humanity's behaviours and decides to build a nuclear bomb to destroy humans.

That seems about right.

The movie has a budget under $1-million and they are still in the process of finding a director and a cast, but it's safe to say that Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling will not be reprising their roles for this one.

This might just be the movie we didn't know we needed.

Guess we'll just have to wait and see...
