Forget "Dukes of Hazzard 2" -- Is "Super Troopers 2" On Tap for Broken Lizard?

Summary

Even though last year's "Dukes of Hazzard" raked in a respectable $80 million at the box office, don't look for another go from the Broken Lizard crew. "Dukes" director Jay Chandrasekhar and fellow Lizard Kevin Heffernan told RT they're over it, and after this month's "Beerfest" they plan on turning their attention to more Broken Lizard projects, including "The Greek Road," "The Babymaker," and ? "Super Troopers 2!" Back to Article

Broken Lizard is the shiz. All the projects sound fantastic to me.

I loved supertroopers for the most part so I wouldn't mind a sequel at all.

I love supertroopers too, but I think Jay is right, a sequel(prequel) could be really bad and ruin the whole supertrooper phenomenon.

supertroopers doesn't seem like a movie that can have a sequel or a prequel. the thought never crossed my mind, but other people have been "long been screaming" for it? maybe it's just because i don't have my finger on the 'pulse', but this is the first i've heard anybody wanting a supertroopers sequel/prequel.

I'm excited for "Beerfest" (combines three of my favorite things: Broken Lizard, Beer and Boobs), but if it goes the way of "Club Dread" box-office wise. I'm sure we'll be seeing "Super Troopers 2" sooner than they say.

I like Super Troopers, but wasn't a fan of Club Dread. Beerfest seems like it has a better chance at the box office.

I'd be inclined to agree, and I'd like it to do well, but I don't know about its chances. First, it hasen't really been promoted all that strongly, at least from what I've seen (I saw a preview in the theatres first, and only so far, before "Clerks II" and I don't know if I've seen a TV ad yet), and Broken Lizard, while famous on something of a cult level, will not sell a ton of tickets on their name alone. That basically leaves a frat-boy movie like every other to those who aren't familiar with Lizard. Those aren't guaranteed comedy/box office gold. Typically, if this type of movie finds an audience at all, or is ever called a hit, it is on DVD after word of mouth spreads through colleges and high schools. There's always a chance for it to breakout though. I'll be rooting for it. I'td be nice if it seemed like Warner Bros. was doing the same.

[b]Ever since Club Dread and Dukes .......[/b]
Don't really care what Broken Lizard does now , Clud Dread and Hazard were the worst movies I've ever watched . Super Troopers was funny , but a sequel ?
Waste of time . Broken Lizard might redeem themselves with Beerfest , but by the sound of it you'd be better off renting a porno and getting as good a story.

Broken Lizard had one decent movie , but the rest are nothing more than B movies that would have been decent back in 1981 .

I for one think that Broken Lizard had lost it's way after ST. the same as Ben Stiller or Eddie Murphy. When was the last time Ben Stiller made you laugh? re-runs of his old tv show prolly. Super Troopers worked on a lot of levels because it seemed to be a story about highway cops butting heads with local cops and some murder story mixed in. only with ridiculous characters playing the cops, you wouldn't take it seriously. then Brian Cox says, "i just got off the phone with Tom McCartle from the budget committee, This thing with Farva really screwed our pooch...." it seems that despite the highjinks that the boys were having, There was really something at stake here. We were all invested. So the movie, at least most of it, held us and paid off in the end with that Frat party bust thing. Club Dread was a throwback to the horror movies of the late 70's early '80's, with a Scream twist, when kids were killed by some maniac just to show kids having sex with their clothes off. but i never got into seeing Farva as the hero and Jay as some bumbling whatever he was. plus i never really knew who was a counselor and who wasn't. never had that trouble with Meatballs. And i wasn't going to watch this movie again. What the ****? then Beerfest? drinking beer is not funny. making fun of Germans, while acceptable as apparently we'll NEVER forget Hitler, is not F-U-N-N-Y. i was disappointed. i knew that Jay wanted to do new stuff as he directed Dukes of Hazzard, which sucked, but Jessica Simpson must've been fun to watch in that outfit, but they seemed to want to put some distance between themselves and a structured movie with a plot in favor of dallying in movie projects where they could get laid, or make fart/*****/murder/ Germans are rigid jokes, and i was just pissed. I started to hate ME for liking Super Troopers so much that i even thought the word Sequel. Theses guys should all be on the same page. we discovered them together, and movies that put them separately coming to an island or foreign country to compete, then they meet each other, takes up too much time, much like this entry, if they already know each other and trust each other, like a bunch of highway cops, we'll trust and like them too. Saves time.
SUPER TROOPERS 2 AND 3!!!!!
