Super Troopers 2 Is One Step Closer To Coming Out
The sequel to the 2001 comedy has finished shooting; release date will be announced "f**king soon."
Super Troopers 2, the sequel to the 2001 cult hit comedy starring a team of mostly incompetent Vermont state troopers, is getting closer to release. Director Jay Chandrasekhar announced on Twitter that the final day of shooting was on February 9 and said a release date should be announced soon.
Here is a picture of Chandrasekhar, who directed the original and the sequel, standing alongside actor Steve Lemme, who returns in the role of MacIntyre "Mac" Womack:

Super Troopers 2 was partially funded on Indiegogo, where it raised more than $4.5 million back in 2015. The first film had a budget of $3 million and ended up bringing in more than $23 million, according to Box Office Mojo. We can only imagine what hijinks might be in store for the sequel with its expanded budget.
Eric Stolhanske, who plays Robert "Rabbit" Roto shared his own picture on Twitter as well to celebrate the last day of shooting. You can see that image at the bottom of this post.
The main cast from the original is returning for the sequel. Actor Rob Lowe (West Wing, Parks and Recreation) is among the new cast members.
Chandrasekhar and the main cast are part of the comedy troupe Broken Lizard. They also made the movies Beerfest, Club Dread, and Slammin' Salmon.
