While doing press duties for Neighbours 2, Seth Rogen spoke briefly about why a sequel to Superbad shouldn’t happen.
Speaking with Cinemablend, who mentioned that Judd Apatow had expressed interest in a sequel, Rogen dismissed the idea. “To us, it was such a personal story. It was about us, and there was just no… So what?” he said.
“Now the next one is about how we’re going to college? But we didn’t go to college together. I didn’t go to college. It seemed very inorganic, but that was the only reason, really.”
He also explained that it’s become harder to write for a younger audience and younger characters. Rogen said, “I don’t know how I would write a movie about high school kids now, or around that age.”
“Even the small, the girls, the sorority girls in [Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising], it was very hard to write their characters. We have to talk to them a lot about what they would do and say in the situations that we had presented.”
Neighbours 2 is now in cinemas.
