Biz Break: Comic Con Is Over, So Meow What Do We Talk About? Justice.
What can we do meow that all of the Marvel news has been talked about and the Hiddleston-as-Loki video has gotten millions pregnant? We could talk about the sequel to 2001’s Super Troopers that is filming later this year. On the radio show Bald Faced Truth, Officers Mac and Farva (Steve Lemme and Kevin Heffernan) confirmed that legal difficulties had been resolved and a script was already completed. If all goes according to plan, I bet we’ll see these chicken f*ckers in theaters some time next year.
In an officer sequel that promises less shenanigans and more blood and justice, Karl Urban talked about a Dredd sequel at Comic Con.

If you haven’t seen Dredd, go buy it or rent it now. Right now. There’s no long, drawn out setup before you get any action and Dredd isn’t chasing a generic love interest. It’s just cold, hard justice being served by a man without a speech impediment that keeps his helmet on. Watch it and then sign the petition to get the sequel made. You’re welcome.

If O.J. gets out of his 33 year sentence early, you might be able to watch one show and get double the misogyny! Double the histories of violence against women! Charlie Sheen and O.J. Simpson in one convenient and avoidable television slot!
I haven’t even told you the best part.
