super-troopers-2

After years of dormancy and speculation, The Broken Lizard crew has announced that they’ve secured distribution for Super Troopers 2… so that now all they need is the money to make it. With a base goal of $2 million, the comedians have turned to Indiegogo to crowd fund the cost of completion. Citing the fact that they’re just “normal guys who put their underwear on one foot at a time” Broken Lizard promises that the more money that’s raised, the crazier the film will be. With $32,000 raised in the first hour, Super Troopers 2 has the potential to be the BEST MOVIE EVER.
