Ice Cube and Kevin Hart are expected to reprise the roles of James Payton and Ben Barber in a third film in the “Ride Along” action comedy series reports The Wrap.
Screenwriters Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi are already at work on the script according to director Tim Story who says:
“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 idea.”
The first two films have earned over $278 million at the worldwide box office from a total production budget spend of $65 million for both films.
