Jonah Hill starrer Superbad still remains one of the most iconic comedy films of all time. The buzz around a potential sequel has followed the cast and crew ever since the first film became a huge hit. However, Superbad 2 has never gone into development. While Hill has never expressed his interest in making the sequel before, things might be changing finally.
The actor recently said that he would be open to making a sequel, but on one condition. He said that his fans will have to wait a few decades for that to happen. He said that he would not be interested in making a sequel unless the script is centred around the characters as octogenarians.
“I haven’t pitched this to anybody. What I want to do is when we’re like 80, do a Superbad 2. Like, ‘old-folks-home Superbad.’ Our spouses die, and we’re single again. That’s what I want Superbad 2 to be, and that’s the only way I would ever make it,” ” Hill said in an interview with W Magazine.
The original film, which released in August 2007, was a classic high school comedy. The film grossed USD 170 million worldwide. Seth Rogen, who co-wrote and starred in the movie, once told LADBible that this Jonah Hill film is the one film he would “100 per cent probably never touch” in terms of revisiting the franchise for a sequel or reboot.
“Honestly, I don’t think it requires improvement or anything to be built upon it. I’m unbelievably proud of it. It really holds up — people still watch it, high school kids come up to me telling me that they watched it for the first time and how they loved it. It’s worked its way into being viewed as one of the better high school movies that’s out there. I’m so terrified of subtracting from it in any way with a bad sequel or spinoff that I’d never do it. I have so few actual good accomplishments that I’m horrified to fuck with the ones I have,” he said.
The film, which also starred Emma Stone and Michael Cera, follows the story of two best friends, Seth and Evan in their final days of high school. As they come closer to graduating, they and their friend Fogell (Mintz-Plasse) are invited to one last house party. They attempt to lose their virginity before they go off to college, but things get complicated when the group runs into two inept cops.
