Updated: Broken Lizard has met their goal to produce Super Troopers 2

03.26.2015

UPDATE: After only one day, SUPER TROOPERS 2 is a go! The Broken Lizard crew exceeded their $2 million goal in less than one day. With 30 more days on the campaign, how much can they raise?

SUPER TROOPERS may finally be getting the sequel everyone has wanted but it will be contingent on whether you want to pony up the dough to help make it happen. That's right, SUPER TROOPERS 2 is going to be crowdfunded via an Indiegogo campaign launched today by the cast. Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske (better known as Broken Lizard) have made several comedies over the past decade but none have been as embraced as their cop comedy from 2002. Now, after being teased with a cool video teaser, we may finally get the film.

Here's a run down from the campaign as to what they need.

You can head over to the site for more details, but it seems like this is going to be an easy goal to reach. The studio has already agreed to distribute the film, they just need the $2 million to make it. With a month to go, you can see from the embed below that they are already making a decent dent with the site just launching today.

Crowd-funded movies have enjoyed varying levels of success in the last couple of years. After VERONICA MARS set the Internet ablaze with how quickly it made the money they needed, Zach Braff's WISH I WAS HERE turned a lot of people off by requesting money that seemingly could have been provided by the filmmakers themselves. SUPER TROOPERS has always been a cult favorite so having the chance to take part in it's creation is almost as fun as the movie itself.

With plans to make the movie this summer, I would expect this goal to be met soon. So, if you want to get some swag or a cameo in the movie, head on over to their campaign and contribute right meow.

After club dread I thought their stuff was getting stale. But I still enjoy seeing these guys together on screen.

They're probably raise more on the site then they'll get at the box office.

Just kidding. We all know this won't play in theaters.

Good news, but consider this...

A few months ago I was on a crowd-funded site and this elderly couple in Florida made a last ditch effort to not be homeless by putting up an ad. The husband in his 60's had failing health and his hospital bills were putting them in the rears on rent. All they wanted was 3000 dollars so they could, at the very least, find somewhere to go. WHAT'S SAD, is that in 30 days, they met half that. Yet, in less than two days, spoiled fans of a fucking movie immediately shell out 2.6 million dollars

Fuck all of you that don't see how sad that is.

I've died and gone to heaven! I'm seeing this opening night. Have to get Brian Cox and Marisa Coughlin back though.
They all look exactly the same except Jay. Voice sounded different and gained some weight.

I find all the Broken Lizard movies very under rated, I can see this being a solid sequel.

Uh, they are among the most popular cult comedies in the last 20 years, hardly under rated. If they were under rated, they wouldn't have even been [link] in less than a days time.

Unless you are a spoiled rich fanboy brat, any person who would give money for a movie to be made is the biggest sucker ever! I would NEVER waste my hard earned money on such a concept. Nowadays I am even more picky about movies I pay to see.

Unless there's profit sharing I won't pony up a dime for any crowdfunded movie or gizmo. They want our money, and thank us with tshirts and useless crap. Now if you reward our investment with a return on said investment, that I can get behind.

They reward you by releasing a product you could possibly enjoy, not just a "crappy" t-shirt.

Now this is a comedy sequel I can get behind. I have a lot more faith in these guys delivering a solid sequel with Super Troopers then I am with Smith and his sequel to Mallrats.

But the Broken Lizard are very underrated in my opinion. Loved Super Troopers, Beerfest, and Slammin' Salmon.

Why do fans have to finance the movie. I want shares and profit margins if I'm investing, not T-Shirts and BluRays

While I want to see Super Troopers 2, its just stupidity for fans to pay their money to finance this or any crowd funded project. If there's no Return-On-Investment, whats the f-ing point. Find money and make this, but not my money

Sounds good to me

Super Troopers is comedy gold, Beerfest was pretty good too. Their most recent effort was Slamin Salmon back in 2009, it was ok for a direct to dvd comedy. The comedy was a little more mature in that one. I went in expecting "Waiting" and got something completely different.

Whats nice is that these guys are funding the movie themselves, no studio interference. Thats where these crowd funding projects soar. These are truly independent projects without a meddling studio or single financial

I'm optimistic

I just went to the kickstarter page, and they've got 500 k raised for this movie in six hours! I love Super Troopers and I would love to see a sequel.

The first one was really the only one of theirs I enjoyed, not sure if they can recapture what made the original work

If you are hating on Kevin Smith and his Mallrats 2 stuff you also gotta hate on these guys. I kinda think this movie wouldn't do well financially.
