“Mother of God…” Super Troopers will have a sequel. According to an US Weekly interview with Steve Lemme, the 2001 Broken Lizard comedy will start filming at the start of 2015. It sounds like Broken Lizard, who has had some ups and downs with their more recent films like Club Dread, Beerfest and Dukes of Hazard (“that little guy, I wouldn’t worry about that little guy”), is planning to return to the cult classic that catapulted them into the public eye. When asked about the story line Lemme told US Weekly:
“I think it’s one of the more unique and interesting stories I’ve seen in awhile. But the movie picks up pretty much where we left off in the first one. It’s a few years later. The biggest difficulty was trying to top that opening scene, which so many people have complimented us on. I think we’ve done it.”
I am sure many are with me and teaming with anticipation to see how Broken Lizard will try to top what I believe is one of the best opening scenes in a comedy (“littering and…smoking the reefer”). The staying power and influence of the film is clear when for the past 13 years I have been able to use Super Trooper quotes almost anywhere to form a bond with strangers. I think it bodes very well that Broken Lizard has chosen to wait this long to put demand on their sequel when we live in an age where churning out poorly written sequels has become the money-making norm. So everyone go ahead and get ready, it’s time to grow out your mustaches and chug some syrup.
Tell us what you think, do “these schnozberries taste like schnozberries”?
