Broken Lizard Has 'Super Troopers 2' This Summer, Plans 'Weedfest'
Not too long ago, there was talk from Super Troopers star and Broken Lizard comedy troupe member Kevin Heffernan that a sequel to the highway patrol comedy was in the works, with an eye towards shooting this year. Well, Baltimore Sports Talk station WNST AM 1570 (via Movies.com) got some more details as Heffernan was joined by Steve Lemme on their show. Not only did they reveal that Super Troopers 2 has a completed script, but the film will likely shoot this summer for a 2014 release. But that's not all, for fans of Beerfest, there's a sequel on the way that will switch out the booze for the herb. Read on!
Though the idea initially started as a joke, Heffernan and Lemme revealed Weedfest is in the works. Apparently some real interest from famous potheads like Willie Nelson and Snoop Dogg (Lion), along with some smoke-filled fans, really turned some heads at Broken Lizard. Supposedly the project is set up at an undisclosed studio, but they're just now starting on the script. So it might be awhile before the crew gets together for some weed Olympics, but at least they'll be putting the badges back on for more police shenanigans. But are fans still hoping for a sequel 13 years later? We'll have to wait and see.
