RIDE ALONG 3 in The Works, Ice Cube and Kevin Hart Expected To Return
The Ride Along franchise experienced a bit of a drop-off in box office receipts between the first and second films, but it isn't enough to worry Universal, because the studio is putting another sequel into development.
Director Tim Story told The Wrap that Ride Along 3 is in the works:
“We’re writing the script right now, we’re writing away and basically, I’m waiting to see some pages and we’re excited for the idea and what it can be and of course bringing Kevin [Hart] and Ice Cube back together because they are the greatest odd couple in the world. I’m impatiently waiting for a script to be given to me. We have some great ideas.”
If the first film came out in 2014 and the second one hit in 2016, I think it's reasonable to assume this new one might arrive in 2018.
I haven't seen either of these movies (Kevin Hart's schtick can be a little too manic and shriek-y for my tastes), but what do you guys think? Do we have some Ride Hards (that's what fans of this franchise call themselves, right?) out there? Are you excited about the possibility of a third movie?
