Indian American writer, actor and director Jay Chandrasekhar, who, in 2015, turned to crowdfunding for the sequel of his 2001 cult comedy classic, “Super Troopers,” released the first look of “Super Troopers 2” Aug. 28.

Everyone’s favorite cops are back with the long-anticipated follow-up to the raunchy and slapstick comedy, which will be released by Fox Searchlight in April 2018.

“When the United States and Canada get into a dispute about the location of the actual border, the Super Troopers – Mac, Thorny, Foster, Rabbit and Farva — are called in to set up a new Highway Patrol station in the contested area, according to the synopsis. “Our heroes quickly revert to their own brand of unconventional police work.”

Chandrashekhar reprises his role of Trooper Arcot “Thorny” Ramathorn.

The film sees the return of Broken Lizard, the comedy troupe comprising Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske, who were behind the original film.

Chandrasekhar stars in the sequel, which has been directed and co-written by him alongside Heffernan, Lemme, Soter, Stolhanke. The other leads include Linda Carter, Rob Lowe, Fred Savage, Brian Cox, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Will Sasso, Tyler Labine, and Hayes MacArthur.

In the past, the five-man comedy, film-making group, has created films like “Beerfest,” “Club Dread,” “The Slammin’ Salmon,” and “Puddle Cruiser.” The five friends first met at Colgate University in New York.
