Broken Lizard Launches ‘Super Troopers 2′ Crowdfunding Campaign

The Broken Lizard comedy troupe has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to raise production funds for “Super Troopers 2,” 14 years after the original “Super Troopers” was released.

“Super Troopers 2″ reunites all five Troopers from the original film — Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske. The quintet played goofy Vermont state troopers with a penchant for pranks who were suddenly forced to solve a murder and bust a drug-smuggling ring. Brian Cox played their commander.

“We finally have the chance to make ‘Super Troopers 2,'” said Chandrasekhar. “But since we refused to write a sequel where the highway cops have morphed into super hero-vampires, Fox Searchlight proposed the following deal: They’ll release the film, but we have to raise all of the money. So we’ve turned to Indiegogo and our fans to prove that it’s finally time for ‘Super Troopers 2′ to get made.”

The campaign has a goal of $2 million by April 24. If the funding goal is met, pre-production on the film will begin in May, with principal photography starting this summer in the Northeast. However, if the $2 million minimum goal isn’t reached, the script goes back on the shelf.

Contributor perks include T-shirts, posters, DVDs and tickets to the premiere. Supporters can also buy participation in a Beerfest Tournament and drink against the cast; join the cast in Colorado for a legal cannabis outing; and own one of the actual patrol cars used in the new movie.

“Super Troopers” was made for $1.2 million and acquired by Searchlight at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival. It grossed $23 million worldwide.

Broken Lizard also made 2004’s “Club Dread” and 2006’s “Beerfest,” which grossed $20 million. The troupe performed in “Broken Lizard Stand Up” for Comedy Central in 2010.

UPDATE, 2:10 p.m. PDT — The project has raised nearly $350,000, or 17% of its goal, within four hours of its announcement. Broken Lizard has also posted a promotional video:

Oh gods no!!!!!!! I thought the Broken Lizards were finally gone!!!!!!!!!!!

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Everybody is going to start saying "Meow" and "these snosberries taste like snosberries" again! I must have heard those thirty times a day for months and months and then eventually it was only every few days and finally weeks went by. If I hear people quote those again, I will unofficially begin my very own Purge.

As of today, just one day after launching their Indiegogo campaign, Super Troopers 2 has reached its full minimum goal of $2 million in funds. Per the initial statement, this means the movie will move to production, but the Broken Lizard guys made it clear that in order to make the version of Super Troopers 2 they want to make, they’ll need more than $2 million—that was just the minimum needed to get the bare bones version off the ground. If they raise more money, promises of louder explosions, cameos from “real Hollywood actors,” and more full-frontal Farva have been made.

I wish we could edit the filter list on this board and make it so everytime the word "Fuck" was typed it would replace it with "Meow".

bwahahaha

All I can recall about Super Troopers, is Brian Cox.

Daniel Von Bargen was it it too, right?


But I  enjoyed Club Dread.

Of the $2mil goal, they are now at $3.18mil + change. Very Happy

I also came across some news that made me go "oh shit!", but then also made me question some of the choices I've made throughout life.

I just learned that the stoner that licked a window and declared the snozberries taste like snozzberries, is in fact, the husband of the one and only Christina Hendricks.




What the fucking fuck.
