After many years of delays, it appears as if comedy group Broken Lizard will finally be filming the long-awaited sequel to their 2001 hit Super Troopers.
Troop members Steve Lemme and Kevin Heffernan were interviewed last Friday by Portland, OR’s KXL radio in advance of a stand-up appearance in town that evening and Heffernan confirmed that the previously reported legal matters that had been holding up the project appear to have been cleared away by saying -
We just sealed the deal with Fox, who owns the rights. The script is written, and later in the year we’ll do the shooting.
This goes hand in hand with what the group posted the day before on their Facebook page about having had completed a “fun writing session,” including the following Vine video revealing what they were working on.
So presumably, this was one last polish before shooting begins later this year. Perhaps. But since it has taken so long for there to be any movement on a Super Troopers sequel, I am remaining cautious that the project is going forward until there is an official announcement from the studio.
