Snozberries! Farva! Litres o’ cola! Are your “thick and furry” mustaches tingling? Because principal photography on the sequel to the raunchy, twisted, and oh-so-lovable Super Troopers movie, Super Troopers 2, has begun, and new behind-the-scenes photos show the Broken Lizard crew out of their patrol uniforms and in their filmmaking… knit caps.
Jayanth Jambulingam “Jay” Chandrasekhar (say that name ten times fast, or we’ll throw you in the back of the patrol car!), the director of both Super Trooper films, announced through an Entertainment Weekly exclusive that he is writing a memoir entitled Mustache Shenanigans. The book will cover everything from his childhood in the “lily-white suburbs of Chicago,” to the formation of Broken Lizard (the sketch comedy troupe composed of the principal Super Trooper actors) to seemingly everything else between the filmmaker’s birth and the filming of the much-anticipated sequel. And, along with the announcement of the memoir, Chandrasekhar has also released three on-set photos from Super Troopers 2, which give us a glimpse at the wonderful world of… low-budget filmmaking!
Chandrasekhar drinking a Starbucks coffee on a crowd-funded film set?! That’s a paddlin’.
Super Troopers 2, for those who don’t remember, is a completely crowd-funded film, which raised a Shenanigish (trademarked!) amount of money to induce its making; 2 million dollars in a single day, the largest IndieGoGo campaign in the site’s history. And if you’re itching for a taste of that sweet sweet Super Troopers comedy but don’t want to wait, you can check out their campaign video above.
Did you contribute to the making of Super Troopers 2? What kind of shenanigans do you think these guys will get into in the sequel? Do Snozberries taste like Snozberries? Let us know in the comments section, and don’t miss two other images from set in the gallery below!
