Super Troopers 2

Car Ramrod

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.



What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a nightly collection of movie news and links that is quickly finding out that even though SXSW isn’t over, there is such a thing as an early SXSW hangover. A pre-hangover hangover, perhaps? We begin this evening with the coolest image of the day. Easily the coolest image of the day, from The Happytime Murders, a noir murder mystery set in a world where puppets are second class citizens. Henson Studios is putting the thing together, and there’s no end to my own personal excitement.



Anytime the guys from Broken Lizard talk to the press, the prospect of a sequel to their cult hit Super Troopers is bound to come up. And look what is happening as they promote The Slammin’ Salmon.



Like an Arrested Development movie or Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, a sequel to the hit Broken Lizard comedy Super Troopers has always been right on the edge, while still giving fans that pipedream vibe. But now they are talking, and talking seriously.
