No surprise at all, after the film's mega box office success, grossing over $116 million thus far, on a $25 million budget

Universal has set Tim Story to once again direct Ride Along 2, the sequel to Ride Alongfrom a script penned by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi, with Ice Cube and Kevin Hart returning to reprise their roles. 

Will Packer and Ice Cube’s Cube Vision will also return to produce, with a summer 2014 shoot start date eyed on project which Deadline says will have more action and will be more multi-cultural to help it cross over to reach other audiences - although no word on additional casting just yet.

Kevin Hart continues to stay busy, as do Tim Story and Will Packer. Read my piece on Kevin Hart's hustle HERE; and on Tim Story's career HERE.

Packer is currently enjoying the success of both Ride Along and About Last Night, which opened over the weekend; he and Tim Story are finishing off Think Like A Man Too, which will be out this summer. He also has the Idris Elba/Taraji P. Henson thriller No Good Deed on his future release slate. Watch him talk his formula for success HERE.

    John Leguizamo would be a great addition if they are looking for latino comedians.
