FOX Searchlight has confirmed a spring 2018 debut date for its forthcoming Super Troopers sequel – set 17 years after the original.
The film, which reunites all five Troopers from the original film – Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter, and Erik Stolhanske – is slated to bow in theatres on April 20, 2018.
The five key players will reprise their roles as goofy Vermont state troopers with a penchant for pranks and feuding with other local law enforcement officers, with Rob Lowe to play the part of Guy Le Franc, a former hockey player and the current mayor of a Canadian town near Quebec.
The film, also helmed by the original director Jay Chandrasekhar, marks one of the most successful projects to be propelled by a crowdfunding campaign, with US$4.4 million total raised over 30 days on Indiegogo by the Broken Lizard filmmaking team (via Variety). — AFP Relaxnews
