Superbad/Pineapple Express Crossover Movie?

by Joey Paur

Venkman here - At comic-com Judd Apatow said they would consider making a Superbad/Pineapple Express Crossover flick, but I didn't think he was serious I mean how could they do that? Seth Rogan turned down writing a sequel to Superbad because he knew it was a bad idea, so why would he do this? He did say he would be interested in a sequel to Pinapple Express. So He could incorportate the 'Superbad' characters into the sequel to 'Pinapple Express'.

Well MTV did a interview with James Franco and here is what he had to say about it:

"Even before ‘Superbad' came out, I think the studio was trying to get [Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg] to write a sequel, but they really didn't want to write a sequel. I guess the kids would go to college or something like that [that was the studio's idea]," Franco said. "And so, an answer to that was to do a ‘Superbad'/'Pineapple Express' crossover, an unprecedented crossover movie with two directors, Greg Motolla and David Gordon Green, each directing half of the movie and somehow these characters get together, which doesn't make sense at all, but could work."

Rogen himself has stated that he'd be interested in a "Pineapple" sequel. But how would he combine the two universes? Just ask Franco.

"I could sell them [the characters from 'Superbad'] something, but I think we'd want some action, so you know, somehow the kids get in trouble somehow and we have to get them out of it," Franco mused. "And Seth plays characters in both movies, so somehow we'd have to kill one of them off."

This is all just talk for now. Who knows where it will go. I really liked 'Superbad' and I am going to see 'Pineapple Express' soon but I am sure I will really like it as well. I am sure if they do end up making the film it will be just as good as both movies. Don't get to excited! Lets just wait and see what happens. What do you think? Is this a movie you would love to see?
