There's been talk about a sequel to "Super Troopers" ever since its 2001 debut. But now, the movie is officially a go -- and needs fans' help to get made.
Broken Lizard, the comedy troupe behind "Super Troopers," launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to fund "Super Troopers 2," with the goal of raising at least $2 million. According to the Broken Lizard guys, Fox, which owns the rights to the original flick, has granted filmmakers permission to make the movie, and agreed to distribute the sequel in the U.S. and Canada -- but requires the production to be entirely self-funded.
That's where the fans come in, and it seems there are plenty of perks for those who want to donate. A $10 donation gets donors a copy of the "Super Troopers 2" script and behind-the-scenes access to the production, while a whopping $35,000 will award the donor with an actual patrol car used during filming. Other in-between prizes include a digital copy of the movie, mentions or follows on Twitter, a poster, and a trip to the film's premiere.
"We've been waiting for years to do this, and meow the time has come. Our mustaches are thick, furry, and authoritative. The script is written and we're getting all antsy in our pantsy to start shooting," Broken Lizard writes on the site. " ... We've got some big stuff in the script, and if we're able to raise enough money, you'll get to see all of it. The more we raise, the more amazing stuff we can put in the movie. More action, more cameos, more shenanigans, and fine, more Farva."
Sounds pretty super to us. Check out the campaign on Indiegogo here.
