As reported yesterday, casting for the Ride Along sequel is underway, and ANOTHER actor has joined new hires Benjamin Bratt (of 24: Live Another Day) and actress/former comedian Olivia Munn (of the new film Deliver Us from Evil and HBO’s The Newsroom); we hear Ken Jeong is now on board!
If you are not familiar with Ken Jeong, he is probably best known in NBC’s Community and as Asian gangster Leslie Chow in The Hangover trilogy.
The stars of the film Kevin Hart and Ice Cube are back in Universal’s sequel with Tim Story (from the original film and Think Like A Man Too) returning to direct.
Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi are on board as the writers as the story is still being kept under wraps. Cube and Matt Alvarez will produce the new film for Cube Vision alongside Will Packer for his new production arm, Will Packer Productions, as the film is set to be released on Jan. 15, 2016.
This story is still developing!
