I'm not the only one that wants to see a 'Super Troopers 2' happen
The cult classic comedy Super Troopers is one of my favorite comedies. There's nothing like gettin' stupid drunk and watching it in high school or college. Since Super Troopers, Broken Lizard — the comedy group of actors/writers/comedians Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske — has made Club Dread, Beerfest, and appeared in other movies.
There's always been rumors of making a sequel to their best movie, but it wasn't until they spoke with ComingSoon that they admitted they'd like to make a Super Troopers 2. Writer/director/actor Jay Chandrasekhar said:
We're hoping to make 'Super Troopers 2' as a group if we can work out a legal situation with Fox Searchlight. They're into, they like it [...] We have an issue with the first film and the accounting so if that can be resolved, I think we'll end up making it.
Kevin Heffernan added "We've written a script, we've handed it into them, they loved the script." This is all sweet music to my ears. Jay mentioned a sequel to their 2006 comedy Beerfest, which might happen. You'll remember at the end of the movie, the main characters stumble into an underground Pot smoking competition with Willie Nelson. Apparently, they will probably make a Potfest, and Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg and Cheech (Marin) have all said they'd do it.
Right now, Broken Lizard is working on a movie where they are minor league baseball umpires, and they're promoting their new movie The Babymakers, starring Olivia Munn, which comes out August 3rd.
