The first films isn't set to hit theaters until January 17, 1014, but it's being reported that Universal Pictures is already considering a sequel.

Ride Along stars Ice CubeKevin HartTika SumpterJay PharoahJohn Leguizamo and Bryan Callen, in a film that will see Hart play a high school security guard who is ready to get married, but must first survive a Training Day-like ride along experience with her tough cop brother, played by Ice Cube, who doesn’t want the marriage to happen and tries to scare Hart's character away.

Sumpter will play Hart's fiancee; Callen will play a wily, undercover cop alongside John Leguizamo; and Pharoah will play a street-smart informant.

Tim Story is directing the movie, while Will Packer is producing via his Rainforest Films banner, with Ice Cube's Cube Vision, and Matt Alvarez's LBI Entertainment.

Deadline says that Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi, who were among several writers who worked on the original, are dealing with Universal on a sequel that could begin production soon after the first film opens. 

So it doesn't sound like it's a definite go. My guess is that Universal will wait to see how the first film does on opening weekend, and if box office is convincing enough, they'll push forward with the sequel, which I assume Hay and Manfredi are going to go to work on this year, to have it ready just in case.

The film's first trailer will tell us plenty.
