Arriving quickly on the heels of the announcement of its release date, we are getting the first teaser trailer for the long awaited comedy Super Troopers 2. It’s just a short teaser trailer, designed to let folks know that the pride of Spillsbury Vermont is back and they are ready to… shave someone’s testicles? SO yeah, the trailer also suggests that this is going to be a hard “R” rating.
Almost since its release in 2001, fans have been looking for the Broken Lizard guys to return to their rowdy Vermont State Trooper characters for a followup. A number of dates were announced as possible shooting starts, but nothing ever came about. Eventually it was revealed that a “legal thing” between the group and Fox Searchlight that was partially responsible for the delay. The group raised the money for the production in 2015 in an IndieGoGo campaign that met its $2 million goal in just 26 hours.
Super Troopers 2 stars the Broken Lizard group including Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske. Also returning from the first film are Brian Cox, Marisa Coughlan and Linda Carter with Rob Lowe, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Tyler Labine and Will Sasso joining the cast for the sequel.
