In the five weeks since it hit theaters, the Ice Cube-Kevin Hart comedy Ride Along has grossed nearly $120 million against a $25 million budget, and you know what that means: Universal wants a sequel. In fact, the studio started moving on a follow-up last year, when it signed Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi to write a script, but now Variety reports they've started making deals with the on-screen talent.
EXCLUSIVE: It was inevitable after the huge success of Ride Along that Universal Pictures executives would be salivating to get the sequel together. Tim Story will direct Ride Along 2 with Ice Cube and Kevin Hart are closing to reprise their roles as the quick-witted security guard (Hart) who has his eye on his partner’s (Cube’s) sister.

Pretty much none of it was well-received, but if you’re not picky, there’s something for everybody out in theaters this weekend.
