David Wain and Friends Head Back to Camp on Netflix

Where does Ant-Man meet the American Sniper? At camp! The new Netflix series, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is a prequel to the 2001 film that flopped even though the cast was packed with then unknown stars. Director David Wain tells how he got Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, Janeane Garofalo and many others to reprise their roles as 1980’s counselors at Camp Firewood.
