James Franco Says ‘Practical Steps’ Being Taken For ‘Pineapple Express’ Sequel

Talk of a sequel to “Pineapple Express” has kinda been the Internet version of dorm room stoner talk: Dude, that would be so sick if they did another one!! The chatter seemed as substantial as smoke wafting out of a bong, as tethered to reality as James Franco and Seth Rogen’s brains after lighting up some of the title ganja in their 2008 comedy.

Rogen has talked to us a bit about the possibility of a sequel, as has producer Judd Apatow, but it all seemed simply like a whole lotta hot air without much action behind it. But at Sundance last month, Franco told us that some concrete steps are likely in the works for bringing more “Pineapple” to the big screen.

“I think some practical steps are being taken to actually make it happen,” he told MTV’s Josh Horowitz.

Was Franco just engaging in some idle chit-chat? Could a sequel really happen? Hit play on the video to find out and hear why Franco said, “I think it’s in the air. We certainly have discussed it and all dreamed about it.”
