Starring Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Superbad was a coming-of-age comedy written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg loosely based on their own high-school experiences. The film was a major box office success and has gone on to be called one of the best teen comedies of all-time as well as inspiring a slew of imitators. With all that success, you would imagine that we would have had at least one Superbad sequel by this point, but the film stands alone.

While speaking with W Magazine, Jonah Hill said that he does have an idea for a Superbad sequel, but it’s not something they’d be able to make for a few more decades.

I haven’t pitched this to anybody. What I want to do is when we’re like 80, do a Superbad 2. Like, “old-folks-home Superbad.” Our spouses die, and we’re single again. That’s what I want Superbad 2 to be, and that’s the only way I would ever make it.

While I’ve never been one to demand a sequel just for the sake of it, the idea of Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse reuniting as 80-year-olds for a Superbad sequel sounds like it could be a blast.

Seth Rogen has previously said that Superbad is the one movie he’s made that he’d never want to touch again. “Honestly, I don’t think it requires improvement or anything to be built upon it,” Rogen said. “I’m unbelievably proud of it, it really holds up – people still watch it, high school kids come up to me telling me that they watched it for the first time and how they loved it. It’s worked its way into being viewed as one of the better high school movies that’s out there. I’m so terrified of subtracting from it in any way with a bad sequel or spin-off that I’d never do it. I have so few actual good accomplishments that I’m horrified to f*** with the ones I have [laughs].” Christopher Mintz-Plasse said that one way to make a Superbad sequel would a female-led reboot. Assuming we’re all still alive, would you be down for a Superbad sequel with an 80-year-old cast?
