Evan Goldberg has hinted that he might team up with Seth Rogan again to make a Pineapple Express sequel, but that the idea of a possible Superbad crossover has been shelved. According to NME
He (Goldberg) said: “We toyed with that idea right after Pineapple came out. We thought that people would enjoy McLovin and [James] Franco together – but we’re never going to touch Superbad ever again, that’s a terrible idea. I’m even hesitant to make Pineapple 2, but I’m loosening up to it as of the last few weeks.”
He added: “Everyone has always wanted to do it. Me and Seth were very hesitant, but frankly I was the driving force behind that hesitancy… great, great films don’t have sequels.”
Now, if this is true, I’m thrilled. I loved Pineapple Express so much, the characters, quotes, music, everything. James Franco needs to do more comedy. I don’t think a Superbad crossover would have worked, and as much as I loved those characters, going back would only ruin it. However, I hear NME can be unreliable with news, so we’ll see.
Any other Pineapple express fans here?
Thanks Dean for the tip!
