If you were twiddling your thumbs, getting all down heart by reading the marquee at your local theater, and wondering when the hell you’ll be able to feast your eyes on the theoretical comic genius of Pineapple Express 2 – be prepared to be disappointed.

There are two things standing in the way. One is the reality of schedules. Now that Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Franco, and Danny McBride are getting phone calls every 10 seconds for new work, it makes it difficult to get the gang back together. Still, if Danny Ocean can bring a baker’s dozen together, these comedians can most likely make the time.

The second thing is Evan Goldberg. The co-writer of Pineapple Express is incredibly hesitant to go down the sequel road because of the damage it could do if it failed. That damage most likely translates to their career prospects and to the memory of the characters, but it’s not a bad point. Some movies just aren’t made for sequels, and it’s nice to see a filmmaker giving some intense thought to it instead of jumping in blindly.

On that same note, though, Goldberg should definitely take his time, and then decide to make the sequel. It would have fun characters on another wacky adventure, and there’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, it might be a better version of a Three Stooges movie than the actual planned Three Stooges movie. [Cinema Blend]
