After what must’ve been way too many “nos” they just decided to take it to their fans and ask for them to help fund it. Fans turned out in droves and by the end of the day they had already raised over half the amount of money. Today, around the 5pm ET time, after being live for a little over a day, the full $2million dollars was raised. Boom! You can still donate to the film by going to www.supertroopers2movie.com.

The man responsible for the Emmy-winning HBO show Veep as well as the fantastic feature In the Loop has set his sites on his next target. Stalin. Armando Iannucci, the British comic and satirist has revealed that his next project will see him move into previously unchartered cinematic territories. “It’s a sort of comedy about the death of Stalin,” he told an audience at London’s British Film Institute, where he introduced Woody Allen’s 1980 comedy-drama Starlight Memories as part of a series in which filmmakers discuss films that have inspired them. He also added that the Stalin “sort of comedy” would be a film rather than a TV project, and that it was still very much in the planning stages. Speaking about In the Loop, he said that having seen a cinema full of people laughing when it first premiered at Sundance, he could “die happy.” Veep returns to HBO for season 4 on April 12.

Tribeca Film Festival celebrates 40th anniversary of Monty Python and the Holy Grail and premieres new documentary
The new documentary, Monty Python – The Meaning of Live, about Monty Python will be premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York. The feature-length documentary will debut on April 25. Organizers of the festival said on Wednesday the film offers a behind-the-scenes look at the group’s 2014 reunion show at London’s 02 Arena and insights into their comedic genius. The five surviving Pythons, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin, will be on hand for the special screening of Monty Python and the Holy Grail at The Beacon Theatre in New York to celebrate it’s 40th anniversary. Graham Chapman, an original member of the group, died of cancer in 1989 at the age of 48. “The film is so brilliant and the Python’s influence on contemporary comedy in cinema and television is so enduring that it feels as fresh today as it did decades ago,” said Paula Weinstein, the executive president of Tribeca Enterprises. The comedy group, who poked fun at religion and the establishment, performed on the BBC TV sketch comedy program Monty Python’s Flying Circus from 1969 to 1974 before branching out into movies with their subversive comedy. Two of their other films, Monty Python’s Life of Brian, and Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life, will also be shown at the festival.
My Blind Brother, a new comedy starring Jenny Slate, Nick Kroll and Adam Scott, will be filmed in Greater Cleveland starting in early May. The film is from writer-director Sophie Goodhart. My Blind Brother a “comedy with heart. It’s about two brothers who fall for the same woman, played by Slate. Scott, who just wrapped up a long run on Parks and Recreation, plays the older brother. He’s very athletic and a ladies’ man. He’s also blind. Kroll plays the younger brother, who is supposed to be watching out for his sibling. These are three of the top of-the-moment comic talents going right now. Goodhart based the script on her short film with the same title, which was nominated for the Palme d’Or for best short film at the Cannes Film Festival in 2003. The particulars of the film, which also stars Charlie Hewson, are still coming together.
