If we’re going to be bombarded with sequels (and we are, there’s no way around that), we can at least hope for sequels to movies we love, with great actors and— if we’re lucky— tons of women, right? Well, we’re in luck. Neighbors is getting a fast-tracked sequel, with a lady-centric plot.
Penned by Andrew Jay Cohen and Brendan O’Brien, the first Neighbors revolved around a couple (Rogen, Byrne) with a new baby who are forced to live next to a fraternity house and do whatever they can to take it down. Cohen and O’Brien are back for the sequel, which will have a female twist. 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.
Okay, so it’s basically the exact same movie but with women. I don’t really care; I’ll watch it and I’ll love it. But if they could up the Rose Byrnes quotient by at least 10%, that would be great.
And of course that plot switch does nothing to discourage hopes of more moments like these:
Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, Zac Efrom and director Nicholas Stoller have all signed on. It’s not too late for you, Dave Franco!
