Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Byrne are moving back in for Neighbors 2. Universal announced today the sequel to last year’s surprise R-rated hit will get the May 13, 2016 opening slot. The original racked up almost $50M in early May and ended up grossing $268M-plus worldwide, making it the year’s top-grossing original comedy. Nicholas Stoller ( The Muppets, Get Him To The Greek) is returning to direct. Andrew Jay Cohen and Brendan O’Brien, who wrote the original, will executive produce alongside Good Universe’s Nathan Kahane and Joe Drake. Rogen, Stoller and Goldberg will also do some writing on this one. Universal had previously staked out the date for an untitled R-rated comedy, and last summer Rogen and Goldberg said they had been taking meetings about a sequel to the summer comedy but weren’t sure a deal could get done. On the first one, they had trimmed the budget to $18M, making for a hefty profit. Here’s your warning, it’s either time to move in or move out of the Neighborhood. See you summer of 2016.

We can safely say we’ve watched Mel Brooks’ Spaceballs 50 plus times, and every single time we heard the line “Spaceballs 2, the search for more money” uttered, we believed that one day it would come to fruition. Even after spending 2 1/2 hours with Mel Brooks himself for a one-on-one interview a few years ago, we believed it. Well, with a new Star Wars trilogy on the horizon, what better time to make dreams come true. Comedian and filmmaker Mel Brooks says he’s actively working on a sequel to his iconic spoofing Spaceballs, which would begin filming after the December 2015 release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. During a recent appearance on Adam Carolla’s Take a Knee podcast, Brooks confirmed his desire to make the film, which would be entitled Spaceballs: Search For More Money.
