Who's ready for the return of our favorite group of immature delinquent Vermont state troopers, full of shenanigans patrolling near the border of Canada! Well I got the scoop for you right MEOW!!! Car RAM-ROD rides again!!
The sequel to 2001's cult classic comedy Super Troopers is on its way! In an interview with Us Weekly; Steve Lemme, one of the film's stars and an original member of the Broken Lizard camp had this to say about the movie.
Lemme told Us Weekly of why it took so long.
"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, with a minimum budget of $27 million, which we've just about raised. There may be a Kickstarter launched to raise the last little bit."
Careful not to give away any of the plot of Super Troopers 2, Lemme, added:
"I think it's one of the more unique and interesting stories I've seen in awhile. But 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."
It also seems another key feature will return to Super Troopers
"Everybody who had a mustache in the first one will grow it back," said Lemme. "Now the guys who didn't grow mustaches for the first one now want to have a mustache. We're making them earn it, not sure how we'll haze them, but they better be prepared."
Lemme also said the group plans to start filming at the beginning of 2015, with pre-production taking place in November.
