It has been 16 years since the original release of the extremely popular cult classic Super Troopers. Well we now know when the sequel to the popular stoner comedy will be releasing its highly anticipated sequel. I would like to say that I am surprised by the choice of release date, but the movie has been tapped for a April 20th, 2018 release date to the laugh and joy of many seeing that irony and the 17 year anniversary of the first movie to the date.
The movie has been a long time coming and one that had to work extremely hard to be made. The Studio who owned the movie writes, Broken Lizard, did not fund the movie what so ever which lead the actors and producers to crowdfund the movie on Indiegogo. The goal was $2 million dollars and the film ended up raising $4.5 million dollars, more than doubling its goal. The cast stated with more than double the budget they can step up the production and create a story even better than imagined.
With the release date we also got the synopsis of the movie. The official synopsis says:
Everyone’s favorite law enforcement team is back by popular demand with the long anticipated follow up to the cult comedy classic…Super Troopers. When an international border dispute arises between the U.S. and Canada, the Super Troopers–Mac, Thorny, Foster, Rabbit, and Farva–are called in to set up a new Highway Patrol station in the disputed area. Unconventional police work follows, and the result is…Super Troopers 2.
For me as a fan of the original I cannot wait to see the antics that they come up with especially as they will be facing off with Canadians which is undoubtedly going to be hilarious. It also doesn’t hurt that the whole cast is returning as well as hilarious new additions of Linda Carter, Rob Lowe, Emmanuelle Chriqui, and Will Sasso.
