Sequel Planned For Ice Cube and Kevin Hart’s “Ride Along”


A sequel is already in the works for the upcoming Ice Cube and Kevin Hart comedy “Ride Along,” which isn’t due in theaters until January 2014.

“Ride Along” sets Ice Cube as a tough cop who takes his sister’s future security guard husband, played by Kevin Hart, on a 24-hour ride-along which the cop hopes will scare the guy out of marrying his sister.

Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi, who were among several scribes who worked on the original, are in preliminary discussions about scripting a sequel that could be put into production months after the first film opens, according to

Of course, if the film bombs at the box office, it could stop the sequel in its tracks, but according to Deadline, Universal sees it as a high concept comedy made with solid elements at a price, ingredients ripe for sequels.
