The Broken Lizard comedy troupe – consisting of Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske – have stayed consistently busy since breaking on the scene with the Sundance hit (and eventual cult classic) Super Troopers. To their credit, the team avoided making sequels to their various pitches, instead cranking out horror spoofs (like Club Dread) and the sports-drinking comedy, Beerfest. But the lure of a sequel has proven too great, and so Broken Lizard appears to be going back to the well.

Chandraskehar and Heffernan spoke with ComingSoon about a possible Super Troopers sequel, which had been rumored for years. The duo finally admitted:

"We're hoping to make 'Super Troopers 2' as a group if we can work out a legal situation with Fox Searchlight. They're into, they like it," Chandraskehar said. “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."

Heffernan added that the team actually has written a script for a second Troopers, which the studio "loved,” so this sounds like more than wishful thinking. And if all goes well with a Troopers sequel, the pair said they’ve also floated the idea of a Beerfest sequel, with a slight tweak. They’re envisioning something called Potfest, and they’ve already heard from famous smokers like Willie Nelson, Cheech Marin and Snoop Dogg, who all expressed interest in participating. So the Broken Lizard squad could be getting very busy in the next few months and years, which is great news for fans who’ve been waiting to expand on their brand of comedy and possibly rise to the level of the wacky Troopers, which charmed audiences way back in 2001.

Oh man, I got mixed feelings on this one. Super Troopers is one of my favorite comedies. Hope they can pull it off.

I , Just like many others hated Club Dread, but enjoy Beer Fest.

You ever see Puddle Jumpers? That was pretty good too. (It was before Super Troopers)

Paul Soter spoke about this on Jay Mohrs podcast (Mohr Stories ep 45) says the studio fucked them over and they had been wanting to do this before any of the other films they put out.

I didn't like Super Troopers, but it brings me joy that this has raised $1,319,769 more than @Joe Pietaro 's indiegogo campaign.

Also, it's really pathetic that Super Troopers needs a kickstarter to fund a sequel. They made a sequel to Hot Tub Time Machine.

I'll go a step further... I fucking hated Super Troopers. I didn't find it funny in the least. In fact, it angered me while watching it. I honestly didn't understand why the audience would laugh at it. In fact, Broken Lizard as a whole bothers me. It shouldn't, but it does for some unknown reason.

I know I'm in the minority, but God damn, they're not really that funny. Maybe I saw it in a bad mood?

I'm going to sound like an old man here, but when I saw it there was some dumb college kid sitting in front of us ironically "over laughing" at every moment of the movie. We ended up walking out. There may have been some funny parts, but the experience was so bad I've never had the desire to go back and watch it, as it will now always remind me of my very first "These damn kids today" moment.

My theory is that it's a stoner movie, and apparently weed makes it funnier?

I don't know.

It's not that I hate stoner comedies in general... I enjoyed Pineapple Express, for example.

I don't begrudge people who like it, I just don't get it.

Super Troopers wasn't funny? I just don't get this site sometimes. Sure their other movies were pretty shitty though I kind of liked Beerfest.

I didn't say it wasn't funny for its audience (It is the definition of cult), I just didn't find it funny.

Humor is humor, some people get it, some don't. I am just in the dark about why that particular film has such a cult following.

I think we're both acknowledging that we're in the minority. And like I said, I only saw the first half and didn't hear half of what was going on because of some shithead.

I put Super Troopers in the same vein as Tim & Eric. I don't get those guys either. Maybe I'm living a sheltered life.... Maybe I need my humor environment expanded.

Loved Super Troopers. Sure it's silly, but it was one of few movies I can remember actually making me laugh out loud.

I'm sure the second will be a terrible pile of shit, but I'll still see it.

Love ST. The only other BL movie I really liked was Puddle Jumpers.

I have showed ST to other people who didn't find it funny. I was like "Why are you not laughing at that!!!!!!??????"

On the flip side, I'm on an island that didn't find Dumb and Dumber or Something About Mary funny in the slightest. Much like Bill, these movies angered me I found them so terrible.

I have also heard of people that didn't find Office Space funny, I get that there varying degrees of humor, but come on.

And yes, weed and the right mood can make PBS funny.

In reality, there are some weird moments in Office Space that aren't that funny, but they aren't as many as Super Troopers. For Office Space, the movie is funnier if you've ever been in an office setting. If you've never been in that environment, I can see why you'd be like "What the fuck?"
