Talk about fast. Yesterday Broken Lizard started an Indiegogo campaign to fund a second Super Troopers and in just over 24 hours they reached their goal of $2 Million.
Apparently Fox had given broken Lizard the green light on a second movie, but provided no funding so it was up to the ingenious team to find a way to make the film happen. Broken Lizard aimed low at a $2 Million dollar mark to get a barebones script written, and anything raised after the $2 Million was just a bonus that would go to improving the movie quality.
If 25,000 people donate $1 they would each get a xerox of their “sweet mother loving butts” in email and they would randomly pick 100 supporters to get signed and printed copies of their butts.
A $10 donation gets you “so much BEHIND-THE-SCENES ACCESS that you’ll know more about us than our doctors do.” and a DIGITAL-MEGA™ SCRIPT, which includes the final shooting script, set photos and handwritten jokes and anecdotes, you will also get a personal thank you on the site.
Other levels included Fandango tickets, aviator glasses and trooper badge, full size-theatrical poster, DVD, screening tour, and signed posters. From there the perks just get better, but you do need the money to get them. If you really want the guys to stand up at your wedding you only need to donate $25,000, for $45,000 they will even give you one of the screen used patrol cars.
