A disgusting fact to realise is that it’s been 13 years since Super Troopers was released in cinemas, where it wouldn’t find much success until its home video release. Since it rose to popularity in cult form, rumours of a sequel had always been on the cards. But, nothing ever came to fruition.
However, with comedy sequel Dumb and Dumber To topping the Us box office this weekend, it has sparked some hope from Broken Lizard, the comedy trope behind Super Troopers, for a sequel to come to fruition. As posted on Twitter:
Congrats, Farrellys on big weekend for Dumb&DumberTo. Hopefully bodes well for moving #SuperTroopers2 along.

Super Troopers 2 has long been promised, but now its makers are giving us the update true fans have been awaiting with bated breath. Those marvelous mustaches will return with the world's worst police force. Speaking with Us Magazine, Super Troopers co-writer/co-star Steve Lemme promised: "Everybody who had a mustache in the first one will grow it back. Now the guys who didn't grow mustaches for the first one want to have a mustache. We're making them earn it, not sure how we'll haze them, but they better be prepared." Along with Steve Lemme, Broken Lizard's Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Paul Soter, and Erik Stolhanske are anticpated to return for Super Troopers 2. But mustache updates are all that Lemme is leaking in regards to the sequel's contents. Asked about what the Vermont state troopers from the first film would be up to this time around, Lemme was coy, »
Rumors of the Super Troopers sequel have been wreaking serious havoc with my emotions. The sequel idea was mentioned quite awhile ago, and seemed to be confirmed by members of the Broken Lizard comedy troupe that produced the original cult classic. Then we heard very little for or against the movie, and I was beginning to wonder if it was one of those wishful ideas that never gets off the ground – like the Galaxy Quest sequel. Thankfully, it sounds like Super Troopers 2 is indeed coming to the big screen.
Steve Lemme, who played Mac in the first Super Troopers back in 2001, recently confirmed that the much-anticipated sequel is finally getting made. It seems that some little legal disputes were holding things up, but everything seems to be on track now.
Here’s what Lemme said:
You know, it was a combination of having to settle some of the legal disputes about making a sequel, »

Back in February of 2013, Kevin Heffernan and the rest of the members of the Broken Lizard comedy troupe were hoping to start production on Super Troopers 2 by the end of the year, but obviously that didn't happen. So what's going on with the long-in-development sequel? While speaking with UsWeekly, Steve Lemme gave an update on Super Troopers 2, and he says Fox will distribute the sequel, however they need to raise some money for the project first. You know, it was a »

Crowd funding is a big deal these days, sometimes with entire films being funded through sites such as Kickstarter. When not completely funding films, it can also help push the budget towards an acceptable amount, which may very well be the case for the long awaited Super Troopers 2. The Broken Lizard comedic classic hit cinemas way back in 2001, and despite a string of fantastic comedies such as Club Dread, Beerfest and The Slammin’ Salmon, Broken Lizard have always hinted at a return to their most famous cult classic.
The fans have been asking for it for a while, but we were finally able to package everything together. Fox is going to distribute the film, but we needed to raise the money for it, »

“Super Troopers 2” might be just a few dollars short of going into production right meow — err, now. “The fans have been asking for it for a while, but we were finally able to package everything together,” Steve Lemme told UsWeekly on Friday. “Fox is going to distribute the film, but we needed to raise the money for it, with a minimum budget of $27 million, which we've just about raised. There may be a Kickstarter launched to raise the last little bit.” Also read: ‘Super Troopers 2' May Shoot This Year Lemme starred in the original “Super Troopers,” about five Vermont. »

Broken Lizard, the comedy team responsible for stoner classics like Super Troopers and Beerfest, is developing a TV project for TBS. According to Variety, Quality Time will follow the various members of the filmmaking group (assumedly fictionalized versions), focusing on their struggles with raising children and clinging to the responsibility-free lifestyle of their glory days.
The show will be written by Broken Lizard's Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske; they will also produce the project, along with Contend's Steven Amato. No timetable was reported for the »
The project, which is called “Quality Time” and is being developed and produced by Entertainment One Television, follows the now-adult (well, at least older) versions of the group as they struggle through various challenges of adult misery and child rearing and attempt to hang on to the idiotic freedom of their irresponsible pre-parental lives.

The last time we heard anything about the potential for Super Troopers 2 had the guys from Broken Lizard saying that they were hoping to shoot the film last summer. But the season came and went, it's almost a year later, and production still hasn't commenced on the sequel, 13 years after the original debuted in 2001. However, it sounds like they're not done trying to make it happen yet. Stars and writers Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme recently chatted on the “Chewin’ It With Kevin and Steve” podcast (via ScreenCrush) and revealed the script is finished, and a studio has agreed to distribute, but they need money. Here's what Lemme said during the podcast: "The script is written, the deal has been agreed on with the studio, we are in the stage though where we need to raise the financing. It’s nothing out of the ordinary. The studio is just »

Instead, we decided to chat with all five of the Broken Lizard guys to let them tell you all about this little film they made nearly 15 years ago and how it turned into the cult classic it is today. Spark it up, cinephiles! It's oral-history time.
