The Broken Lizard comedy troupe has taken to crowdfunding to help get a sequel to their comedy classic “Super Troopers” going.
Setup at IndieGoGo, the team are aiming to raise at least $2 million to begin production on the project sometime this Summer for an early 2016 release. In less than 24 hours, they’ve almost already reached that goal with the tally currently at $1.69 million.
In the listing, the team members say: “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. The more we raise, the more amazing stuff we can put in the movie. More action, more cameos, more shenanigans, and fine, more Farva.”
Jay Chandrasekhar helmed the first film which pulled in $18.5 million at the U.S. box office in 2002.
