The long-awaited sequel to the cult 2000's comedy film has been written and is waiting to be made, says the original writing team
Two members of the comedy troupe Broken Lizard, Steve Lemme and Kevin Heffernan, were on hand for a Q&A session with fans at the Hawthorne Theater in Portland, Oregon, this Friday (June 19). While there they revealed some very warmly received news indeed, that the long-awaited sequel to the troupe's break-out hit Super Troopers will is in the pipeline and should be getting released in the not-to-distant future.
Chandrasekhar wasn't present at the Q&A
The comedy collective, consisting of Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske, are also responsible for such noted comedies as Beerfest, Freeloaders and Puddel Cruiser, but it is their 2001 break-out film about a bunch of bored highway patrolmen trying to make their jobs more interesting that is still the most revered and loved by fans. So it came as no surprise when the audience warmly responded to the news that a second Super Troopers looks like it is on it's way.
“There is, there is going to be a sequel," Heffernan confirmed during the discussion. "It’s actually happening right now. We just sealed the deal with Fox, who owns the rights. The script is written, and later in the year we’ll do the shooting.”
Heffernan and Lemme failed to reveal any further information about the work-in-progress, but we shall keep you up to date with any information on the film as it emerges. In the meantime, why not check out this hilarious clip from the first Super Troopers below.
