It has been a long road for the Super Troopers. It took 17 years for the first sequel to happen, and it only succeeded because it was partially crowdfunded. So now, five years later, where is Broken Lizard at with a follow-up?
In a short trimmed clip from Nerdtropolis, Jay Chandrasekhar directly addressed the question about Super Troopers 3, saying, “We’re ten drafts in. So, we’re hoping to do it next.” The Broken Lizard members also teased Super Troopers’ future during an appearance on Chicago’s WGN9.
Super Troopers 3: The Winter Soldiers is listed on IMDB, but we cannot verify if Broken Lizard or a random IMDB user generated the listing.
The WGN9 segment is more fleshed out, with the members of the comedy troupe talking about their beginnings and their newest film Quasi. This latest R-rated comedy is premiering on 4/20 on Hulu, thanks to Searchlight Pictures.
Quasi, as you could probably guess from the title, is about a “hapless hunchback yearns for love but finds himself in the middle of a murderous feud between the Pope and the king of France when each orders the hunchback to kill the other.”
The original Super Troopers hit US theatres in 2002 and became a cult comedy. The budget was under $5M but took in over $23M worldwide. Oddly, a sequel wasn’t immediately on the charters for Broken Lizard.
Instead, the troupe next focused on a comedy horror flick called Club Dread in ’04 and Beerfest in 2006. Eventually, thanks to an overwhelmingly positive crowdfunding campaign, Super Troopers 2 was made in 2018.
In one day, the fan-backed project raised $2 million. It blew past stretch goals, which helped secure the return of Brian Cox as Captain O’Hagen and a brief cameo from Marisa Coughlan as Ursula. The final budget for the film was just over $13M, but the sequel managed to bring in $31.6 million, beating the original.[Source: Nerdtropolis] [Source: WGN9]
