‘Super Troopers 2’ Lands Spring 2018 Release Date
Fox Searchlight has set an April 20, 2018, release date for “Super Troopers 2” — 17 years after the original.
Jay Chandrasekhar is directing the comedy sequel, as he did on the original. Filmmaking team Broken Lizard raised $4.4 million in a 30-day crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo in 2015 that saw more than 50,000 contributors. It was one of the most successful crowdfunding campaigns for a movie along with the $5.7 million raised by fans for the “Veronica Mars” movie starring Kristen Bell.
Donation incentives for “Super Tropers 2” on the first day included a producer title for $10,000, a speaking actor role for $10,000, a trip to the ballpark with the main actors for $15,000, and the patrol car to be used in the filming for $35,000. “Super Troopers 2” met the initial goal of $2 million (set by Fox Searchlight) in 26 hours.

Samuel L. Jackson, Jessie T. Usher to Star in ‘Shaft’ Sequel
After originally planning a full reboot of the ’70s classic, New Line is reverting back to a familiar formula for the next installment of “Shaft,” while also leaving the door open for a new face to take over the franchise.
The original 1971 version — based on Ernest Tidyman’s novel — starred Richard Roundtree as a smooth private detective who’s hired by a drug lord to find his kidnapped daughter. The character became a pop culture icon and the theme song, written by Isaac Hayes, went on to win an Oscar.

Adam Driver Teases "Unexpected" Kylo Ren Development in 'Last Jedi'
It's a trap! Or maybe not.
The 33-year-old actor doesn't give anyway any specifics, obviously, but he does make a comment that is interesting when asked by Willie Geist if fans "will be happy with that happens to Kylo."
Driver responds, "God, I hope. I think it will be hopefully unexpected."
Now, this could mean anything. Perhaps Luke or Rey cut him down or maybe he pulls a Darth Vader and redeems himself. Or maybe none of the »

Nordic Content Powers Up Haugesund Market
Haugesund, Norway — A record number of 440 Nordic and international film professionals have registered for the 23rd New Nordic Films market at the Norwegian International Film Festival in Haugesund, now the largest Nordic film market.
It opens on Tuesday Aug. 22 at Haugesund’s Edda Theatre with the announcement of the nominations for the Nordic Council Film Prize, one of the largest and most prestigious awards in the Nordic countries.
“In the last couple of years, the international focus on Nordic content has been increasing, which is the main reason for the growing participation,” said market director Gyda Velvin Myklebust, who has been in charge of the operation for 15 years.
She added that another reason was the market’s presentation of films “on four levels”: Graduation movies from Nordic film schools; screenplays for new features; works-in-progress and completed features – as well as the projects in the Nordic Co-Production and Finance Market.”
