Less than one year after Indiegogo success Lazer Team hit theaters, director and producer, Matt Hullum announced filming for Lazer Team 2 is set to begin spring 2017 in Texas. The film received over $2.3 million during its crowdfunding campaign in 2014 and raised an additional $1 million in theatrical release pre-sales. Earlier this summer, Hullum and his team stated the sci-fi comedy was getting a sequel, which is set to premiere on YouTube Red.
“Thanks to this amazing partnership with YouTube and the platform’s incredible reach, we’ll be able to bring ‘Lazer Team 2’ to millions of fans across the world.‘Lazer Team’s’ success on YouTube Red proved that with the right partner we’re able to capture new audience and give our fans more access to the content they love, and we couldn’t be happier to be doing it again.”
The original film’s synopsis reads:
“When four small-town losers stumble across an alien crash site containing an incredible battle suit, they soon find themselves responsible for the fate of the entire planet. With this new alien equipment genetically bound to them, and the government hot on their heels, the foursome have no choice but to work together as one to save humanity. All they have to do is learn to use a strange alien device meant for only one-person, train for a battle against an omnipotent enemy, and not kill each other in the process. They may not be strong, smart, or talented… but they’re Lazer Team. Based on a true event, Lazer Team is directed by Matt Hullum and stars Burnie Burns, Gavin Free, Michael Jones, Allie DeBerry, Colton Dunn and features Alan Ritchson.”
