Some of the best inventions happen by mistake. Potato Chips, Penicillin, Anal Sex. And now thanks to a smartass comment during an interview, the crazy idea of making one sequel to two unrelated movies might actually happen.
Seth Rogen’s Superbad was awesome, and the studios have been poking him hoping to get him to make a sequel. Instead he made Pineapple Express. Now he wants to make a Pineapple Express sequel, and Sony still wants Superbad 2. Off the cuff in an interview Seth said “combine the two titles, and make one super awesome movie”. Then at SDCC’08 Apatow hinted that they might actually be going in that direction!
So, yes, it is very possible that, in the summer of 2010, we will see something called Superbad Express, or Bad Pineapple, or The Further Adventures of Seth, Evan, Saul, and Dale.In the interview, Franco stated, “Even before Superbad came out, I think the studio was trying to get [Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg] to write a sequel, but they really didn’t want to write a sequel. I guess the kids would go to college or something like that. An answer to that was to do a Superbad/Pineapple Express crossover, an unprecedented crossover movie
The interesting thing is that Seth plays a character in BOTH of those movies. So how will they handle Superbad’s Seth and Evan meeting up with Dale Denton and not recognize him as Officer Michaels?
However they do it, its likely to be funny as all hell. I haven’t seen Pineapple Express yet, but Seth is more behind that than Superbad and I loved Superbad.
