The time is meow! Super Troopers 2 could finally become a reality thanks to an IndieGoGo campaign which launched a few hours ago. The Broken Lizard crew are looking for at least $2 million, but would prefer more. According to the team, if they don’t reach the $2 million mark, then Super Troopers 2 won’t get made.
“We’ve been waiting for years to do this, and meow the time has come,” they write on their IndieGoGo page. “Our mustaches are thick, furry, and authoritative. 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.”
“We’ve got some big stuff in the script, and if we’re able to raise enough money, you’ll get to see all of it. The more we raise, the more amazing stuff we can put in the movie. More action, more cameos, more shenanigans, and fine, more Farva.”
The perks include things like tickets to see the movie, DVDs, signed posters to bigger items like walk-on roles, a director’s chair with your name on it and even the patrol car used in the movie. One perk even sees them come to your wedding in costume!
Super Troopers 2 has been on the cards for a number of years, but has always failed to become a reality. The Broken Lizard crew made cult names for themselves off the back Super Troopers, which led them to make horror spoof Club Dread and booze-themed comedy Beerfest. Their last movie, The Slammin’ Salmon, was poorly received by critics.
