It’s been 12 years since Super Troopers launched Broken Lizard, and it’s been 7 years since they proclaimed publicly that a sequel was on the way. Anyone who held their breath is either dead or setting some kind of laudable record by now. For all those who have turned blue, Guy Speed is reporting that, in their interview with Kevin Heffernan, the actor announced that the sequel is likely going to shoot by the end of the year. With all due fairness to the excitement of seeing the gang back on patrol, we’ve heard that the project is close to filming for a long time, and it’s usually come from Heffernan, and this isn’t the first year where he’s claimed they’d make it “by the end of the year.” But usually the story involves a vague legal issue that they’ve been hammering out with Fox. This time, all Heffernan mentions is negotiations on “the time and the place.” As usual, cautious optimism is the key here. But Heffernan also said he was going to start growing his mustache, and maybe that dedication to the cause is reason enough for all of us to get pumped. Now the question is whether the sequel still sees them invading Canada.
