It’s been a long time coming, but thanks to the magical device known as the internet, Super Troopers 2 is actually going to be made! Now, I’ve never seen Super Troopers, so please don’t all rush at me with sticks, but I have it on good authority that it’s incredibly funny and thus, a sequel shall be too. Such is the reliable nature of comedy sequels.
Yesterday, Broken Lizard released an indiegogo, with a goal of $2 Million, and in the time since, the funding has been raised! Which is incredibly fast, but not unexpected for high profile crowdfunded projects. The other benefit of this crowdfunding strategy, in addition to the fact the movie gets to exist, is that it will be made without studio interference, which leads to a more honest, if not better movie. Veronica Mars crushed its goal, and that movie turned out pretty great for its fans.
So if you’re into Super Troopers, then consider this your official announcement to begin getting hype. And let me know if the original’s still on Netflix, because I should probably watch it.[via Collider]
