The trailer for Pineapple Express 2 was just an April Fools joke, part of a viral marketing campaign for another Judd Apatow buddy comedy that happens to star the exact same people and…well, sounds exactly like Pineapple Express 2.
However, if you’re a big fan of Craig Robinson and sequels, I do have some good news for you. Hot Tub Time Machine 2 is happening. The original flick starring Robinson alongside Rob Corddry, Clark Duke, and John Cusack earned $50 million at the box office, and critics were generally amused. So as far as MGM is concerned, why not do a sequel?
Well, actually, Cusack not returning might be a reason not to do a sequel. Early reports have said he hasn’t signed on. However, Robinson recently hinted that negotiations are still ongoing, which seems to suggest he’s holding out hope.
In any case, the film starts shooting in June. Personally, I’m betting the gang’s next hot tub time traveling adventure takes them into the future, but we’ll have to wait and see. In the meantime, here’s the original HTTM trailer, just in case, for some reason, the title doesn’t tell you everything you need to know:
