A little while back, Seth Rogen mentioned in an interview that he didn't want to do a sequel to his acclaimed comedy Superbad, even though Sony was pushing for one. The actor/writer/creator of all things cool announced that he'd much rather do a Pineapple Express sequel. He then went on to say how he could conceivably combine the two titles, and make one super awesome movie where Seth and Evan, home from college for summer vacation, accidentally bump into Dale and Saul. It sounded like the musings of someone with a lot of ideas on his plate. But not a real planned project. But then, during one of the Pineapple Express screenings at Comic Con 2008, Judd Apatow announced to a packed house that this idea might actually become a reality. Now, MTV Movie Blogs has posted a story with excerpts from a recent James Franco interview, and it seems like everyone is quite keen to the idea.
So, yes, it is very possible that, in the summer of 2010, we will see something called Superbad Express, or Bad Pineapple, or The Further Adventures of Seth, Evan, Saul, and Dale.
In the interview, Franco stated, "Even before Superbad came out, I think the studio was trying to get [Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg] to write a sequel, but they really didn't want to write a sequel. I guess the kids would go to college or something like that. An answer to that was to do a Superbad/Pineapple Express crossover, an unprecedented crossover movie with two directors, Greg Motolla and David Gordon Green, each directing half of the movie and somehow these characters get together, which doesn't make sense at all, but could work."
He then went on to explain how the kids would meet Dale and Saul, "I could sell them something, but I think we'd want some action, so you know, somehow the kids get in trouble somehow and we have to get them out of it. And Seth plays characters in both movies, so somehow we'd have to kill one of them off."
As this proposed idea becomes more of a reality, we will certainly let you know. As for now, it's just something being talked about.
