Broken Lizard Hopes to Film 'Super Troopers 2' Sometime This Year

Super Troopers

The original Super Troopers premiered at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival and played in theaters a year later in February of 2002, and questions of a sequel have persisted ever since. The Broken Lizard comedy troupe has since made Club Dread, Beerfest, The Slammin' Salmon, The Babymakers, and Freeloaders, but it's safe to say that none of those follow-up projects were as iconic as the group's breakout effort. But it looks like they're going back to what worked, as Guy Speed (via ScreenCrush) has an interview with Kevin Heffernan (who played Farva) who says the comedy sequel could finally get underway this year. Read on!

We last heard that Super Troopers 2 secured financing way back in 2009, but though multiple drafts were written, it sounds like the writers and the studio couldn't agree on a script, until now. Here's what Heffernan told Guy Speed:

“There will be a Super Troopers sequel. We put it off for a while and then came back to it. We wrote the script and handed it in to Fox and now we’re just negotiating the time and the place and hopefully shoot it some time this year. I have to start growing my mustache now.”

I just did a spit-take with an entire liter of cola. This is good news for fans of Team Ram-Rod, and there's certainly precedent for a long delay in between franchise entries: there were 28 years between Tron and Tron: Legacy, 25 between The Hustler and The Color of Money, and 22 between Wall Street and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, just to name a few. If Super Troopers 2 actually does go before cameras this year, we can assume it will be released in 2014, making it only a twelve year gap between the sequel and the original. But are people still interested in seeing Thorn, Mac, Foster, Farva, and Rabbit again?

How many years is it gonna be before Van Damme goes on another QUEST? (NOTE: 17 years and counting...)

People are absolutely still interested. This is tough move for them though. Its got to be difficult to try to live up to that first one. That film became an instant classic, and it feels like a lot of people were disappointed in BL's subsequent releases because they expected to see those same characters. I felt like that when I watched Club Dread, expecially Heffernan's transition from Farva. But that was a damn good flick, as was Beerfest and Salmon. Haven't seen those last two. Anyways, looking forward to the sequel!

What happened with Potfest? Super Troopers is the original but Beerfest was almost as hilarious and iconic,in my opinion...

Beerfest was awesome indeed and I loved the slammin salmon. I wish these guys got more recognition then they get. They absolutely deserve funding for all their projects.
