'Neighbors 2' with Rogen and Efron is on its way
Universal announced today that Neighbors 2, featuring the first movie’s stars Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, and Rose Byrne, is heading to theaters May 13, 2016. Director Nick Stoller will return to helm the sequel.
Neighbors follows a war of pranks and wits (sort of) between young parents played by Rogen and Byrne and the frat boys, led by Efron, who move in next door to them. Though Neighbors ended on a conciliatory note between Rogen’s new dad and Efron’s frat boy, surely more hijinks (possibly involving Robert de Niro costumes) can ensue.
The film made around $268 million worldwide.
Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver of Point Grey Pictures will produce the follow-up, which will be executive prouced by the original’s writers Andrew Jay Cohen and Brendan O’Brien, and Nathan Kahane and Joe Drake of Good Universe. Cohen, O’Brien, Stoller, Rogen, and Goldberg will all write the movie.
