First Rule of Beer Club...Don't Talk About Beer Club
We've got to say, while we didn't see Dukes of Hazzard when it came out, we're big fans of Jay Chandrasekhar and the Broken Lizard comedy troupe. We're huge fans of Super Troopers, and while we're a bit more lukewarm about their follow-up Club Dread, it definitely had its moments. Pina Coladaburg? Genius.
So, we always pay attention when any Broken Lizard news hits the InterWeb, especially if it has to do with booze, and today we hit pay dirt. IESB.net caught up with Mr. Chandrasekhar, and it seems the Super Troopers alum are getting back together for a new movie about underground beer festivals in Europe. The flick, called Beer Fest, will be about "the secret underground beer games in Munich, much like Fight Club or Death Sport," he says, “like, 5 man international teams having beer games, not to the death but something close.” Beer club? We're in.
Even more importantly, there's news on the Super Troopers front as well. See below for more info from IESB.net:
He says the Broken Lizard gang is thinking about making Super Troopers ’76, based in 1976 where they play their fathers. He says they would be unable to continue from the end of the original because they have all become local cops and they “thought it would be cockamamie to go back to being Troopers.”
If Super Trooper ’76 does happen it would most likely be after Beer Fest. The much rumored Greek film is not ready to be shot due to the weather. “Its going to be winter so we may do it when the weather gets better.”
Don't just wait around for the sequel, though - buy your own copy of Super Troopers
or Club Dread
