Broken Lizard, the comedy team behind Beerfest and Club Dread, announced today the launch of a new to finance the sequel to their 2001 cult hit Super Troopers. The campaign will last through April 24th, and the goal is $2 million.
Heffernan: I think that our movie really lends itself to this. I mean, Super Troopers was a grassroots movie. The movie was never a wild box office success. It was just passed around to people or watched on DVD. We had a hell of a time making the movie just because of the style of humor of it.
Super Troopers is a movie I've never seen but when people ask me about it I say I do cus I've said it so long idk who I told what.
Thorny, Mac, Rabbit, Foster and Farva are Vermont state troopers out to have a good time. Stationed in a remote area near the Canadian border, the troopers, avid pranksters with an affinity for syrup, have a knack for screwing up on the job. But when budget cuts in the town of Spurbury threaten their livelihood and pit them against arch-rival Spurbury P.D., the five friends try to straighten up and fly right. That is, until a dead body is discovered and a possible drug ring is unearthed. The super troopers spring into action attempting to solve the crime, save their jobs, and outdo the local police department. Written by
Ever since the 2001 laugh-riot comedy Super Troopers hit theaters in 2001, becoming a cult classic in the years to come, we've all pretty much begged for a sequel. We've heard rumors and a lot of promising talk about Super Troopers 2, but this week star Steve Lemme pretty much confirmed that Broken Lizard is making the film just as soon as it gets funded. He suggests a Kickstarter campaign could have to be implemented, but the mustaches will be back!
