Flip and get more on Ride Along 3…

Cube + Hart Gear Up For Ride Along 3 has learned that Universal is on board for another Ride Along, starring Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, who are ready to return.

According to the studio a script is currently in development from screenwriters Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi. Director Tim Story is returning.

TheWrap first broke the news that a third Ride Along was on the way:

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 ideas.

Story directed both previous Ride Along movies, which star Hart as an eager rookie cop and Ice Cube as a more experienced detective who also happens to be the older brother of Hart’s fiancée. Hay and Manfredi worked on the scripts for both films. Both Ice Cube and Hart are expected to reprise their roles for the next movie. Less clear is which of the supporting cast members will return. Laurence Fishburne, John Leguizamo, Olivia Munn, and Benjamin Bratt have been among the co-stars in earlier installments.

Neither film set the world on fire, but the buddy cop comedy is a classic formula for a reason. Plus Kevin Hart and Ice Cube have phenominal comedic chemistry onscreen.

The first Ride Along, released in 2014, was a surprise smash hit. It opened to $41 million in the middle of January, covering production costs, and eventually taking in $154 million worldwide. The sequel performed with a solid $124 million worldwide tripling its initial $40 million budget.

We guess we can expect the bigger + better theory on part three, which means bigger budget.
