“Super Troopers 2” won’t be in theaters until next year, but the film already has a new red band trailer, and it looks like the hilarious team is back to their shenanigans on the highways of Vermont.
There is good reason the characters’ antics will please its fans. Though the film was not a massive hit during it’s theatrical run, the film did emerged as a cult classic since it’s release. That fan-base who responded after Broken Lizard started a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, eventually raising $4.4 million, allowing them to film the sequel.
Comedy troupe Broken Lizard consisting of Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske, return as writers. The team also stars in the film with Rob Lowe co-starring, while Chandrasekhar is directing.
Fox Searchlight Pictures will release “Super Troopers 2”, slated for April 20, 2018, 17 years after the original film’s release.
Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
Everyone’s favorite cops are back (by popular demand) with the long anticipated follow up to the cult comedy classic: Super Troopers 2. When the United States and Canada get into a dispute about the location of the actual border, the Super Troopers – Mac, Thorny, Foster, Rabbit and Farva – are called in to set up a new Highway Patrol station in the contested area. Our heroes quickly revert to their own brand of unconventional police work.
