Breaking the $100 million mark for a January premiere is an accomplishment for any movie. But, when that movie only cost the studio $25 million to make, you better believe they will capitalize on it and fast. With that said, Universal has just announced RIDE ALONG 2.

Bringing back stars Kevin Hart and Ice Cube along with director Tim Story, Deadline reports that RIDE ALONG 2 is being developed with returning screenwriters Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi. The goal is to finish the script soon and to start shooting this June or July. That could put the release as early as the end of the year or, more likely, January 2015.

The studio also plans to increase the action in the film while also adding a more ethnically diverse cast to capitalize on international and minority markets. The studio is also going to bank on Kevin Hart while he is hot. Hart's recently released ABOUT LAST NIGHT has done fairly well and he has several other movies due this year, including GET HARD with Will Ferrell, THINK LIKE A MAN TOO, and THE WEDDING RINGER.

Smart to capitalize on Hart

I watched this last week in the theater. For matinee price, I was pretty satisfied. Most of the funny bits were in the trailer, but there were thankfully other parts that the trailer didn't "ruin." It probably helps that I'll give anything with Kevin Hart in it a try. Some people don't like him, which i could see in terms of theatrical films; he can be a guy who hordes all the energy to himself in some movies. His stand-up is pure gold though, every one of them.

As for the sequel, it

As for the sequel, it won't reinvent the wheel, it will be more of the same. It would be shocking if they could get it into theaters by January of 2015 though.

If they got the sequel in theaters by December 2014 I believe that would be an unequivocal record from first movie release to sequel release without intentionally shooting back to back.
