Seth Rogen considering Neighbors sequel

News Simon Brew 9 Jun 2014 - 06:35

A Neighbors 2 - or Bad Neighbours 2 if you live in the UK - is under consideration...

Over the weekend, 22 Jump Street established itself as the big non-family live action comedy to beat at the UK box office this year. But before that, Bad Neighbours - released as Neighbors in the UK - had been doing a fair bit of business too. In fact, it's been one of the sleeper hits of the year, grossing $223m worldwide off an $18m budget.

The film was made by the production company Point Grey, that Seth Rogen set up with Evan Goldberg and James Weaver. And Rogen has revealed that they cut the budget right down in order to keep interference from above to a minimum. Furthermore, Rogen has also revealed - at a producers conference over the weekend - that he and his team are now considering Bad Neighbours 2.

Admitting he's continuing to eye comedy projects, Rogen said that "we are having a lot of discussions", about a sequel, and we'd imagine that should it happen, Zac Efron might just be tempted to return. Rogen's language suggests he's far from certain that it'll happen though. But it's a project on the drawing board at least.

"Bad Neighbours - released as Neighbors in the UK - had been doing a fair bit of business too." Other way round.

Not a great film, not great news.

I feel like I have to justify myself and say I'm really not snobby about comedy and I quite like Seth Rogen but I sat stoney faced through Bad Neighbours, it just didn't do anything for me at all.

Seth Rogan's career would look best, right now, as a retrospective if he'd just have the decency to kill himself. I realize that it would limit the number of sloppy, flabby white guy comedies that include fart humor, but hey, he could hang himself in a Motel 6 shower and start a trend.

I would humbly suggest that 50/50 is a decent flick, and he's great in it.
