According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bauer Martinez Distribution has acquired North American distribution rights to Van Wilder II: The Rise of Taj. The film, being produced by Tapestry Films, is shooting in Romania.
Wilder II is the sequel to 2002's National Lampoon's Van Wilder, which made $21 million at the boxoffice but went on to become a cult hit on DVD. The new film stars Kal Penn, who reprises his role as Taj. In the sequel, Taj heads to England's Oxford University to further his studies while also showing the uptight student body how to have a good time.
