Broken Lizard's The Babymaker with Farva is Next, Not Troopers 2
After plenty of Super Troopers 2 discussion, apparently the next film for most of the Broken Lizard team will be a comedy titled The Babymaker, not a sequel to Super Troopers. Paul Soter told MTV that the film will be directed again by Jay Chandrasekhar and will star Kevin Heffernan, better known as Farva. This isn't official confirmation that Super Troopers 2 has been put on hold, since Soter is unsure whether the rest of the Broken Lizard team will even have small roles, but it is confirmation that this comedy is in the works.
Soter goes on to explain the plot of the film:
"Kevin is a married guy in a couple that has no interest in having children. Suddenly his wife gets baby fever. It becomes a fertility comedy for a while about his attempts to impregnate his wife. Then they find out he has become sterile but he had been a sperm donor in the past. He finds out there’s one batch left, and they won't give it to him. So he gets his buddies together for a heist to go steal his sperm back."
It doesn't sound very good on paper, but it will likely be much funnier on screen. I'm a fan of the Broken Lizard team, despite not always making the best comedies, and will always look forward to the next film any of them are involved in. As Soter said, this might not star the rest of Broken Lizard, but it will at least have that same feeling that they all bring to their films.
