‘Super Troopers’ Sequel Confirmed


[dropcap size=small]M[/dropcap]other of God. It has been confirmed that the 2001 comedy classic Super Troopers is finally getting a long-awaited sequel.

Steve Lemme, one of the film’s stars and member of the Broken Lizard comedy group, confirmed to Us Weekly that work on a follow-up film is presently underway. Right meow, after almost 15 years of waiting, Lemme revealed that the development of the sequel was finally gaining steam, saying:

[dropcap size=small][/dropcap]You know, it was a combination of having to settle some of the legal disputes about making a sequel, while also negotiating terms for it. The fans have been asking for it for a while, but we were finally able to package everything together. Fox is going to distribute the film, but we needed to raise the money for it. We’re close. There may be a Kickstarter launched to raise the last little bit.”

While he didn’t give away very many details on the plot of Super Troopers 2, Lemme did reveal that “…the movie picks up pretty much where we left off in the first one. It’s a few years later. The biggest difficulty was trying to top that opening scene, which so many people have complimented us on. I think we’ve done it.”

He also noted that the rest of the Broken Lizard comedy team — Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Erik Stolhanske, and Paul Soter — will be back to reprise their roles.

And yes, the mustaches are back too. Lemme says:

[dropcap size=small][/dropcap]Everybody who had a mustache in the first one will grow it back. Now the guys who didn’t grow mustaches for the first one want to have a mustache. We’re making them earn it, not sure how we’ll haze them, but they better be prepared.”

Pre-production work on the Super Troopers sequel will take place in November, with the group planning to begin filming in early 2015.
