Coming Soon was fortunate enough to have a conversation with Jay Chandraskehar and Kevin Heffernan of Broken Lizard, the creators of Super Troopers, BeerFest, Club Dread, and a whole slew of other hilarious films. In this conversation Broken Lizard hinted at a Super Troopers sequel when prompted by Coming Soon:
“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’ve written a script, we’ve handed it into them, they loved the script,”
“We have an issue with the first film and the accounting so if that can all be resolved, I think we’ll end up making it,”
So there you have it. Super Troopers 2 pending approval. AWESOME.
In other Broken Lizard news, a sequel to 2006′s Beerfest may be on the horizon. Only this time alcohol is not the preferred indulgence of choice, it’s marijuana.
“We’ll also probably make ‘Potfest,’ which was a joke, but then Willie (Nelson) said he would do it, and Snoop Dogg and Cheech (Marin), they both said they would do it and we’re like, ‘We can probably do this.’ You go into the TSA, that’s the number one movie they ask for. I think there may be an audience for that. There are also films we’re working on – we may do an umpire movie, playing minor league umpires.” Read more here via Cultso
