The rumors of Super Troopers and Beerfest sequels continue
The crew of Broken Lizard have a new movie in theaters this week (The Babymakers) and with the press junkets it once again gets the rumor mill going as to the status on the sequels to their most popular flicks, Super Troopers and Beerfest.
As recently as March of this year Kevin Heffernan and Jay Chandrasekhar stated that a Super Troopers 2 script is finished and was being shopped around. Now the duo is stating the legal situation with the Troopers franchise owners, Fox Searchlight is into working it out.
“We’re hoping to make ‘Super Troopers 2′ as a group if we can work out a legal situation with Fox Searchlight,” Jay told us. “They’re into it, they like it.” “We’ve written a script, we’ve handed it into them, they loved the script,” Kevin 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,” Jay said rather openly… and we hope he won’t get in trouble from his lawyer for doing so.
And in the same breath as Troopers we find ourselves mentioning the sequel to Beerfest aka Potfest is a possibility still.
