Ride Along 2 is now officially in theaters. Tim Story’s anticipated sequel picks up where Ride Along left off, with Ben Barber (Kevin Hart) graduating from the police academy and putting together last-minute wedding details with his fiancée Angela Payton (Tika Sumpter), while James Payton (Ice Cube) struggles to cope with his soon-to-be brother-in-law’s existence. Days before tying the knot, Ben and James are assigned to a case in Miami and tasked with the hefty responsibility of bringing down a powerful drug lord named Antonio Pope (Benjamin Bratt).
For the final segment of my interview with the cast and crew, we get into the specifics of filming Ride Along 2. From the perspective of Ice Cube, Kevin Hart, Ken Jeong, Olivia Munn, Benjamin Bratt and the film’s director/producer duo Tim Story and Will Packer, the group offers up insight to onscreen chemistry, the importance of filming in Miami, what to expect, and where this franchise could possibly go next. Oh yeah, and I get totally roasted by Ken and Olivia, which for those that aren’t me, will be fun to watch.
In the previous two segments, I asked the cast more topical questions such as their favorite go-to car jams and passenger seat struggles. And for Hart and Cube, I had them name their favorite movie that the other’s starred in, which more or less was a complete disaster.
