Broken Lizard's Steve Lemme Says 'Super Troopers 2' Is Set to Film Next Year

The Super Troopers sequel is happening. Speaking to Us Weekly last week, Broken Lizard's Steve Lemme confirmed that the long-awaited Super Troopers 2 is now set to begin production sometime early 2015 following some legal and financial hurdles:
