"Neighbors 2" Shoots This Summer

Universal Pictures has announced that it is moving forward with a sequel to last year's adult comedy hit "Neighbors".

 The original film followed a rivalry between a member of an alpha male-filled college fraternity (Zac Efron) and a local family man (Seth Rogen) who lived across the street with his wife (Rose Byrne) and baby girl.

Rogen, Efron and Byrne are all set to return for the follow-up that sees a female sorority moving  next to the Radner's,  The couple soon  enlists help from their former enemies in the fraternity to take down these wild coeds.

The original film's director as well as writers Brendan O'Brien and Andrew Cohen are coming back too.  Rogen, his pal Evan Goldberg and Stoller will help out with the script.
The original film made over $268 million worldwide from an $18 million budget. Production is slated to begin this summer on "Neighbors 2" to meet a May 13th 2016 release, where it will go up against Paramount's reboot of the Friday the 13th film franchise.
