After two films of trying to avoid the perils of young fraternities and sororities wrecking havoc, Seth Rogen's Mac and Rose Byrne's Kelly have had two Neighbors films full of conflict and misused air bags. So if Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising happens to be the hit that it wants to be, a concept for the obvious third entry is going to have to do something different. Enter Chloe Grace Moretz, with an idea that could make the potential Neighbors 3 something to look forward to.
During the red carpet premiere for Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, The Hollywood Reporter managed to catch up with Moretz, who is one of the new additions to the Neighbors family with this summer's sequel. Though you wouldn't know it considering the pitch she makes below for a third film, as she thinks the following is the most logical conclusion:
I think they should go on vacation to Mexico and it should be one of those big sorority, fraternity conventions and they should run into Zac and I in Cancun and they're like, 'Fuck we tried to go on vacation and that didn't even work.' That's what I'm pushing. Let's make it!
Right out of the gate, Chloe Grace Moretz's pitch for a sequel to Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising sounds like the most logical idea for expansion of 2014's surprise smash hit. Rather than keep the conflict at the same house for a third time around, especially when two might be seen as pushing it by some audience members, a change of venue that puts both parties off balance is the perfect raising of stakes. In fact, it wouldn't be all that surprising if Zac Efron, Seth Rogen, and Rose Byrne all joined forces with Moretz to stop some sort of external force confronting all of them at the same time. The most likely prospect in that case could be a drug cartel kingpin, but seeing as 22 Jump Street followed a similar trajectory, it would be wise to consider that idea really hard before making any decisions.
Of course, this idea isn't the only possible incarnation Neighbors 3 has seen, as we previously reported on the zombie themed pitch that Seth Rogen and Zac Efron put together in a little video that went out on Twitter earlier today. While Neighbors 3: Zombies Rising is a more goofball approach to a Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising sequel, it is an all-together new approach that the series could take to keep itself fresh. However, between both possible sequels on the table, the Neighbors franchise doesn't look like it's hurting for ideas, especially if Zac Efron and Chloe Grace Moretz are involved as partners in crime.
Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising is in theaters this Friday.
