"Neighbours 2" IS A GO AHEAD!

Well Neighbours 2 is a go people as THR reports that a sequel is going full steam ahead.

Universal is moving forward with a follow-up to its hugely successful comedy from last summer that will reunite all of the major principals including stars Rogen, Zac Efron and Rose Byrne as well as director Nicholas Stoller. Neighbors, which cost just $18 million to make, earned $268 million worldwide. The studio will give the film a wide release May 13, 2016.

Penned by Andrew Jay Cohen and Brendan O'Brien, the first Neighbors revolved around a couple (Rogen, Byrne) with a new baby who are forced to live next to a fraternity house and do whatever they can to take it down. Cohen and O'Brien are back for the sequel, which will have a female twist. This time a sorority moves in next door to the couple, who enlist their former nemeses from the fraternity to help battle the raucous sisters.

Universal is prepping the sequel for a summer shoot.

Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver -- who together produced The Interview -- are producing Neighbors 2 through their Point Grey Pictures. Good Universe, which has collaborated on several films with Point Grey including Neighbors and This Is the End, is producing as well.

Neighbors 2 marks Rogen's first deal since the media frenzy surrounding The Interview (Sony initially withdrew the film from theaters following threats of violence made by the hacker group Guardians of Peace but then changed course and released it in smaller venues and simultaneously on video on demand).
