Super Troopers 2 Release
Super Troopers 2 hits theaters this Friday! The day is finally here! The long awaited sequel to the cult favorite Super Troopers. The movie also happens to be coming out on the ironic day of April 20th. I must say my family and I were super excited to be a part of this long awaited project.
Being a part of the movie scene
My other half, Ryan has been producing movies for along time now so being on set came easy to him. He has helped with numerous movies such as Miss December (Kevin Smith), Booted (Ryan Dunn), a small part in Worthless (with Tara Reid not yet released) to name a few but never a sequel and never a movie in which I was already a huge fan of so. When my other half was contacted to produce needless to say I was very excited.
For the small percentage that has not yet seen the first installment of Super Troopers, it is a comedy directed by and starring Jay Chandrasekhar along with the rest of the Broken Lizard cast. It takes place in Vermont where a group of state troopers play more games than doing their actual police work. They have a constant rival with the local police department who are protecting criminals. They then find themselves in some hilarious shenanigans while dealing with a drug smuggling murder investigation, all while stopping the states pending budget cuts.
The guys at Broken Lizard are super nice and exactly what you would expect. Jay even gave Ryan some pointers while I was taking some pics. Although Ryan has been on so many sets in the past, This was very different then all the others. We agreed it was a very fun atmosphere to be in.
Many sets can be a lot different then you would expect with very long drawn out days. This particular set was filled with a lot more smiles and laughs then I’ve personally seen on any other set. I think not just me but even the crew and staff felt like family, which I believe in the end made for a super entertaining film.
This was also the first set I brought my, at the time 4 year old daughter, Hailey to. She was the only child there and did perfect. I explained to her that when they said “quiet on set you then have to be quiet” and she was quiet every time. I was amazed, I think everyone else was too! Almost felt like she was a natural.
Hailey even asked a lot of questions and had a great time meeting some of the cast including Seann William Scott. We had fun telling Bruce Springsteen jokes and talking about how Seann was not the Easter Bunny (inside joke). Haha!
A Personal Thank You!
I’d also like to personally thank Steve Lemme, Jay Candrasekhar, and Richard Perello for allowing us the opportunity to be a part of movie history in another funny and entertaining Broken Lizard production.
What are you waiting for?
So the time is MEOW. Go be the first to check out Super Troopers 2 this Friday. You can be the first to talk about it before your friends!
