A sequel to Super Troopers has been on the cards ever since the first outing floored audiences back in 2001. Now, the Broken Lizard crew are promising to deliver Super Troopers 2 with 20th Century Fox locked in to distribute. The small snag? The studio needs to know that fans REALLY want it, so the $2 million required to produce to the feature will be acquired through crowdfunding. An Indiegogo campaign has since gone live, offering fans perks and incentives for donating to the movie’s budget.
If that fixed amount isn’t reached – the movie will not go into production. If the campaign secures the $2 million and up, production will commence and a slew of bigger sequences will be incorporated into the movie. Judging by the array of wild and wacky incentives on offer, it won’t be long until the target is reached and cameras start rolling.
For a full rundown of all the crazy antics the Broken Lizard crew are doing in the name of Super Troopers 2, head over to the official campaign page. Until the Internet is awash with the inevitable news that the film is entering production, check out a brief overview of the movie’s mission below.
We’ve been waiting for years to do this, and meow the time has come. Our mustaches are thick, furry, and authoritative. The script is written and we’re getting all antsy in our pantsy to start shooting. There’s just one problem:
While the studio has given us permission to make the sequel, and agreed to distribute it (at least in the USA and Canada), we need to fund the movie ourselves.
So this is how it works: if we’re able to raise at least $2,000,000 in the next month, we’ll be able to get to work on a barebones version of Super Troopers 2 this summer. But $2,000,000 is the bare minimum we’ll need to get into production.
We’ve got some big stuff in the script, and if we’re able to raise enough money, you’ll get to see all of it. The more we raise, the more amazing stuff we can put in the movie. More action, more cameos, more shenanigans, and fine, more Farva.
And here’s the other thing: to get Super Troopers 2 a wide release – to get it into a theater near YOU – we need to prove that there’s a real demand to see it, and not just a dozen stoners who keep asking for it over and over.
That means: the more people who contribute to help make the movie, the better our chances of getting a wide release, and coming to a theater where you can enjoy our new shenanigans in their full, cinematic splendor.
