The Super Troopers 2 IndieGoGo campaign raised a massive $4.4 million dollars, and will begin shooting this summer.
For the uninitiated, Super Troopers was a film about a group of dysfunctional highway troopers who spent their days messing with potheads and hating on the local cops. A common tale - it bombed at the box office but became a cult classic, and earlier this year the original team started an IndieGoGo campaign in order to finally give us the Super Troopers sequel we deserve.
Now, the campaign has come to an end, and despite asking for just $2 million, it has raised a massive $4.4 million, ensuring that the movie will be, in the campaign's words "the best movie ever!". It did fall just short of the $4.5 million "live bears in the movie" stretch goal, but i mean, they have pretty good CGI these days anyway.
Filming for the movie should start this summer, with the ultimate release date not set in stone as of yet, but will hopefully be late 2016.
Even though the campaign has officially ended, you can still donate money on the IndieGoGo campaign for perks, and to hopefully make the movie even better.
