Broken Lizard star/director Jay Chandrasekhar is directing a sequel to a hit film. It’ll be filled with laughs, hijinks and maybe even people with badges but, unfortunately, it’s not Super Troopers 2. Chandrasekhar has been tapped by Warner Bros. to rewrite and direct Yogi Bear 2, the sequel to the 2010 Eric Brevig hit that grossed just over $100 million in the U.S. Read more after the jump.

One’s a sequel in plot only, the other’s a sequel to a movie with no plot. And while those are obviously jokes, when the writers of the original Hangover make a movie about an evening spiraling out of control and Yogi Bear gets a follow-up, well, we’d be remiss not to kid about it a little.
Here’s the news. Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, writers of the original Hangover and upcoming comedy The Change-Up, have decided on their next film. They’ll co-write and direct a movie called 21 And Over which will star Miles Teller (Rabbit Hole) as a motivated kid whose two friends take him out for a wild night the day before a big interview. It’ll be distributed you Relativity Media.
