Hi, Bryan Here…
We have all heard of the rumors surround a ‘Super Troopers’ sequel for quite sometime now. And at the end of ‘Beerfest’, the funny folks of Broken Lizard hinted at a sequel called ‘Potfest’. Well, the good folks at Comingsoon spoke with Jay Chandrasekhar and Kevin Heffernan about the development of those two most anticipated sequels.
Jay said, “We’re hoping to make ‘Super Troopers 2’ as a group if we can work out a legal situation with Fox Searchlight. They’re into, they like it.” Then Kevin said, “We’ve written a script, we’ve handed it into them, they loved the script.” Jay added, “We have an issue with the first film and the accounting so if that can all be resolved, I think we’ll end up making it.”
I still think this is their best film and have been a sequel since the first one came out all those years ago. I feel the same way about a sequel to ‘Beerfest’.
Speaking of ‘Beerfest’, Jay said that a sequel to that might actually happen. As I stated above, at the end of ‘Beerfest’, there was a mention of a new film called ‘Potfest’. Jay said, “We’ll also probably make ‘Potfest,’ which was a joke, but then Willie Nelson said he would do it, and Snoop Dogg and Cheech Marin, they both said they would do it and we’re like, ‘We can probably do this.’ You go into the TSA, that’s the number one movie they ask for. I think there may be an audience for that. There are also films we’re working on – we may do an umpire movie, playing minor league umpires.”
If both of these films see the light of day, all will be right with the world. Wars will end. Hunger will cease, and dogs and cats will live together in harmony.
Jay and Kevin’s new film ‘The Babymakers’ releases in theaters and VOD on August 3rd.
