directors Daniel Fabelo and Matt Hullum,
"Lazer Team 2"
It is the penultimate day of shooting of Rooster Teeth’s Lazer Team 2 at Austin Studios in mid-April and the characters played by co-screenwriter Burnie Burns, Michael Jones, Gavin Free, Colton Dunn and franchise newcomer Nichole Bloom are crammed into a tiny spaceship heading back to Earth. Everyone is in good spirits as they work on Day 19 of the 20-day shoot--about half of what was allotted for Lazer Team--and Bloom is being a real trouper despite being under the weather. Directed by Daniel Fabelo and Matt Hullum, this sequel to Rooster Teeth’s first feature film finds the surviving members of the disunited Lazer Team at loggerheads with each other until they are enlisted by Bloom’s scientist to rescue one of their own from a spacecraft commanded by a hostile alien species. Lazer Team members also hope their mission will result in the removal of the piece of alien-manufactured armor each had to wear to save Earth during a deadly game that played out during the first film. Rooster Teeth CEO Matt Hullum co-wrote Lazer Team 2 with his co-director Daniel Fabelo and cast member Burnie Burns. Burnie Burns, Gavin Free, Michael Jones, and Colton Dunn play the members of Lazer Team. Nichole Bloom, who appears with Colton Dunn on the NBC sitcom Superstore, joins Lazer Team 2 as a scientist who is sweet on the intellectually enhanced Gavin Free. Writers/directors Daniel Fabelo and Matt Hullum and cast members Burnie Burns, Michael Jones, Gavin Free, Colton Dunn and Nichole Bloom took time out from shooting Lazer Team 2 to discuss the sequel, which is now available for viewing at YouTube Red.
