Brace yourselves for more laughs! There will be a sequel to 2001's beloved comedy Super Troopers, and Us Weekly exclusively spoke to Steve Lemme, one of the film's stars and a member of Broken Lizard, for more scoop on the movie.
"You know, it was a combination of having to settle some of the legal disputes about making a sequel, while also negotiating terms for it," Lemme told Us of what took so long. "The fans have been asking for it for a while, but we were finally able to package everything together. Fox is going to distribute the film, but we needed to raise the money for it. We're close. There may be a Kickstarter launched to raise the last little bit."
Without revealing the plot of Super Troopers 2, Lemme, 45, added: "I think it's one of the more unique and interesting stories I've seen in awhile. But the movie picks up pretty much where we left off in the first one. It's a few years later. The biggest difficulty was trying to top that opening scene, which so many people have complimented us on. I think we've done it."
The first movie, which starred the Broken Lizard comedy group — Lemme, Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Erik Stolhanske, and Paul Soter — followed the hilarious antics of five Vermont state troopers, patrolling near the border of Canada.
Lemme revealed to Us that their infamous 'staches will be part of the new flick. "Everybody who had a mustache in the first one will grow it back," said Lemme. "Now the guys who didn't grow mustaches for the first one want to have a mustache. We're making them earn it, not sure how we'll haze them, but they better be prepared."
Lemme also said the group plans to start filming at the beginning of 2015, with pre-production taking place in November.
