Sequel to Seth Rogen's 'Neighbors' to be released next year

NEW YORK (AP) — A bit of good news for Seth Rogen: His "Neighbors" is getting a sequel.

Universal Pictures announced Friday that it will release a follow-up to the hit 2014 comedy in May next year. The film will return Rogen and Rose Byrne, who played new parents forced to live next door to a fraternity led by Zac Efron.

In the sequel, which also will be directed by Nicholas Stoller, a sorority moves in next door to the young family. Efron will again co-star.

"Neighbors," which earned $268 million worldwide, was produced by Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the duo also behind Sony Pictures' "The Interview." They are also producing an animated comedy for Sony titled "Sausage Party."
