Broken Lizard, the comedy group who created the beloved original film in 2001, began shooting the long-awaited sequel in Boston last week. The filmmakers raised $4.5 million in funding for Super Troopers 2with a wildly successful Indiegogo campaign last year, far surpassing their initial $2 million goal.
The original cast of Broken Lizard members -- including Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske -- are all returning to reprise their roles as bumbling cop roles, and wrote the project together. Chandrasekhar is once again set to direct.
There's no word yet on a possible release date for Super Troopers 2.
