It looks like a sequel to the 2001 cult comedy Super Troopers may be ready to shoot later this year if Broken Lizard’s Kevin Heffernan and Steve Lemme are to be believed.  Heffernan was quoted as saying:

“We wrote the script and handed it in to Fox, and now we’re just negotiating the time and the place and hopefully shoot it some time this year. I have to start growing my mustache now.”

This would certainly come as some good news for fans of the hilarious original picture, directed by Jay Chandrasekhar, that centered on a group of Vermont state troopers .  Hit the jump to watch the trailer for the original.

We have a couple quick casting notes to report.  First up, Paul Schneider (Lars and the Real Girl) will star in Broken Lizard’s new movie The Baby Maker.  While Broken Lizard will star and the troupe’s Jay Chandrasekhar will direct, the script was penned by Ice Age: The Meltdown writers Peter Gaulke and Gerry Swallow.  Per Variety, “Story follows a married couple who fail to conceive after months of trying, prompting the husband to enlist his friends’ help to rob a Pasadena sperm bank, where he made a deposit as a young man.  All of the Broken Lizard members are expected to co-star, with Kevin Heffernan playing the protag’s crazy best friend, who hooks him up with an Estonian master thief, played by Chandrasekhar. Other Broken Lizard members include Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske.”

Why the sperm bank wouldn’t simply give him back his own seed is beyond me.  I’m also surprised that sperm keeps for that long.  Logistics aside, Schneider is terrific actor and it will be interesting to see him play against the Broken Lizard gang.  Hit the jump for some casting news regarding the adaptation of Elmore Leonard’s Freaky Deaky.

Universal and MPCA Knows Broken Lizard Are a Bunch of ROGUE SCHOLARS

broken_lizard_image.jpgI’m a huge fan of the Broken Lizard bunch and while I’m still upset that I still haven’t seen their latest film, The Slammin’ Salmon, I’m happy to hear that Universal Pictures and Motion Picture Corporation of America have picked up two projects from the group.  The first project is called Rogue Scholars, which THR says is a “college comedy revolving around five unruly professors played by the members of Broken Lizard — Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske.”  Details of the second project are being kept under wraps and both are still in the script stage.

The Broken Lizard films (Super Troopers, Club Dread, Beerfest) don’t tear up the box office, but they do well on DVD and build up a cult following.  I put Super Troopers on my Top 20 of the 2000s list because it’s so quotable and never gets old.  Hopefully, this is where the group turns a corner and finally gets their work out there in a big way.

Anchor Bay Films is going to get a pass from me for a while because they picked up Broken Lizard’s newest film, “The Slammin’ Salmon” and will distribute it to theaters this December.  Every time I saw an update from BL on Facebook, I would wonder when I would finally get to see the movie which premiered at Slamdance this past January.  Now I get to see it before the end of the year and I’m beyond excited.  Hit the jump for details.
