A sequel to the stoner movie Pineapple Express just might be in the works.
E Online is reporting that, while a Pineapple sequel has been talked about for a while, it's now sounding like it just might actually happen.
I don't think it's so precious that I wouldn't want to ruin it with a sequel, Seth Rogan told the E! News.
So yeah, I would be [into it]. We talk about it. We joke around about it, Rogan added.
Rosie Perez, the actress who played the crooked cop pursuing Rogan and James Franco, is also reportedly on board to for the flick.
I would love to do a sequel with those guys . . . they are a lot of fun, Rosie Perez, 47, told E! News.
Perez goes on to say how shooting the 2008 film was rather tough for her, considering that her father had just passed at the time.
It was a tough time for me doing that. My father had passed and it was really difficult. They were really kind, especially Seth. They were so kind and so accommodating. So I have really good memories about that experience because it could have been horrible. A reunion, that would be fun! Perez said.
In addition to Perez and Rogan, Pineapple Express writer Evan Goldberg has also said he's loosening up to the idea of a sequel.
Everyone has always wanted to do it, me and Seth were very hesitant, but frankly I was the driving force behind that hesitancy, Goldberg told the network.
But now that it sounds like everyone is on board for the Pineapple sequel, audiences can be sure to look forward to another round of laughs provoked by bong hits and blunders.
And while most stoner movies have certain elements and themes in common, that of which consist of two male friends who smoke, or are attempting to get their hands on marijuana and have some sort of task to complete, Pineapple Express certainly fits that mold.
