When ComingSoon.net spoke to the Broken Lizard members while they were promoting their new film “The Babymakers,” they offered an update on the status of the movie. Though “Super Troopers 2” hasn’t come together yet, it’s still on its way.
“We’re hoping to make ‘Super Troopers 2’ as a group if we can work out a legal situation with Fox Searchlight,” Chandraskehar said. “They’re into, they like it.”
“We’ve written a script, we’ve handed it into them, they loved the script,” Heffernan added.
Chandraskehar elaborated, “We have an issue with the first film and the accounting so if that can all be resolved, I think we’ll end up making it.”
It turns out that’s not the only sequel they have up their sleeves. Though not as much of a cult favorite as “Super Troopers,” Chandraskehar teased that a follow-up to 2006’s “Beerfest” might be on its way as well.
“We’ll also probably make ‘Potfest,’ which was a joke, but then Willie [Nelson] said he would do it, and Snoop Dogg and Cheech [Marin], they both said they would do it and we’re like, ‘We can probably do this.’ You go into the TSA, that’s the number one movie they ask for. I think there may be an audience for that,” he said. “There are also films we’re working on – we may do an umpire movie, playing minor league umpires.”
When IFC caught up with Chandrasekhar and Heffernan at SXSW back in March, they similarly teased that a “Super Troopers” sequel could come together soon.
“We’re hoping to make ‘Super Troopers 2’ eventually,” Chandrasekhar said. “We’ve written the script and as soon as we figure out a little sort of legal thing with Fox, I think we’ll hopefully get a chance to make that.”
“It’s ready to go,” added Heffernan.
