Watch: Broken Lizard Gets Police Training Again for 'Super Troopers 2'
It only took 24 hours for Broken Lizard to round up the $2 million they needed from an Indiegogo campaign in order to make Super Troopers 2 a reality. In fact, the campaign is still going now and has rounded up over $3.3 million, and you can still contribute if you haven't already. And to keep the hype around their indie comedy sequel going, Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske all got together to get some police training again to prepare for the film. After all, it's been 14 years since the gang suited up to deliver justice and speeding tickets, so they surely need it.
Here's the cast of Super Troopers 2 getting some police training (via Funny or Die):
Super Troopers 2 is directed by Jay Chandrasekhar (The Dukes of Hazzard, Super Troopers) and written by Broken Lizard. The film completed funding in March for the comedy sequel with an Indiegogo campaign as part of a deal with Fox Searchlight, who agreed to distribute the film if financing was secured. Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske will all reprise their roles from the first film, though there's no indication of any other cast members returning yet. Pre-production will begin in May with shooting beginning this summer somewhere in the Northeast. Stay tuned for more.
