Updated: Seth Rogen and Zac Efron will reunite for Neighbors 2 in 2016

02.06.2015

Update: Plot synopsis revealed for the sequel.

After grossing obver $250 million worldwide on an $18 million budget, NEIGHBORS is set to get a sequel next summer. Universal had previously slotted an untitled R-rated comedy for May 2016 and we now know it will be the follow up to the college-set raunchy comedy.

Deadline says NEIGHBORS 2 will see the return of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg as writers and producers alongside director Nicholas Stoller. Andrew Jay Cohen and Brendan O'Brien, who wrote the first film, will executive produce the new film. Rose Byrne will return as well. Here's the plot synopsis:

This time a sorority moves in next door to the couple, who enlist their former nemeses from the fraternity to help battle the raucous sisters.

NEIGHBORS was definitely a fun movie but paled in comparison to Rogen's recent work on THIS IS THE END and THE INTERVIEW. The movie ended in a pretty tidy conclusion so while a sequel is not needed it could still be possible. Here's hoping it is not just a cash grab retread of the first movie and brings something special to screens.

NEIGHBORS 2 will hit theaters on May 13, 2016.

This is cool , but Rogen was suppose to work on Preacher. Maybe he is not the right choice for writing the script.

Neighbors was so much better than the Interview. Giving Rogen some new blood to play against instead of the same old crew made all the difference in the world

I agree that it wasn't the funniest or glitziest of the Rogen movies. I probably would have preferred a Pineapple sequel too. But it was pretty dam funny, and is actually much better on repeated viewings. And like the article states, it cost $18 mil to make and made a ton more. I'm into this. The story, while predictable, actually sounds quite organic and like it could work. They could get some really funny young actresses that have an edge for the sisters, and Rogen and Effron have

They could get some really funny young actresses that have an edge for the sisters, and Rogen and Effron have chemistry, so the two of them being on the same side will surely be side splitting. I'm thinking maybe a couple of the Spring Breakers actresses. The two blonde ones especially.

Should have made This is the End Too.

Have the start of the sequel show the guys getting out of the premiere for the first movie and take it from there.

First one was great. Not sure what they could possibly do for a 2nd, but whatever, might be good. Rose Byrne was awesome. There are lots of funny actresses around now, but for some reason she never gets mentioned among them.

I really liked the first one. I'm looking forward to the second one. If it sucks, it sucks.

While I agree with everyone below that a sequel is just unnecessary for this movie. I do think it has potential to work. As long as they stay far away from re-treading the first movie.

***SPOILER ALERT***

I think what could make for an excellent follow up, is given that the movie ends with Rogen and Efron on good terms and Efron's character basically having flunked out of college. For the sequel have Rogen's character take Efron's under his wings and help him get his life sorted out.

Efron is somewhat hesitant to this and constantly pulls Rogen down to his level and that's basically the conflict for the movie.

Or the thing could be absolute shit. I work in insurance, so what do I know?

I agree. I didn't like the ending. Everyone got what they wanted but Efron. And the film took strides to not make either side the bad guys. I thought rogen should've gotten him a job, made him a babysitter, or at least bailed him out of jail

STRONGLY DISAGREE

I felt that Neighbors was BY FAR the best of those three movies. They could have easily made Efron's character the stereotypical preppy, villainous frat boy, but there was actually much more to the character than that. I thought the movie was really funny (Rose Byrne's Bros before Hos plan was awesome) and it also had a lot of heart. I'm very game for a sequel as long as they find clever new places for the characters to go.

Talk about a cash grab. The first one was quite hilarious and ended the story just fine.

Why doesn't everyone involved just get together and work on another competely different project instead of this??

And I guarantee you if Dave Franco's character is back, then they'll find someway to bring in James Franco as the older brother.
