Olivia Munn is going for a ride a long with kevin Hart and Ice Cube
After bringing home over $150 million worldwide on a budget of $25 million, a sequel to RIDE ALONG was a no brainer. The movie will bring back stars Kevin Hart and Ice Cube along with director Tim Story. Now for the sexy news; Olivia Munn, who stars in this week's supernatural thriller DELIVER US FROM EVIL (check out our review), is in talks to join RIDE ALONG 2.
Munn is currently working on the final season of HBO's Newsroom and found some time in her schedule for the movie which is set in Miami this time around. Munn will play a tough homicide detective who is a love interest for Cube. RIDE ALONG had a record-breaking opening weekend when it debuted over the four-day Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend to $48.6 million and stayed in the No. 1 spot for three weeks! I didn’t see the movie but heard it was pretty funny and Hart didn’t yell all the time, which is a bonus.
As mentioned, Munn will next be seen in horror film DELIVER US FROM EVIL, hitting theaters today. RIDE ALONG 2 drives into theaters on January 15, 2016. Don't worry ladies, I didn't forget about you; Benjamin Bratt is also set to take part in the sequel. You're welcome.
