Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising Recruits Clara Mamet And Rapper Nora Lum

16 September 2015 1:21 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The cast of Nicholas Stoller’s comedy sequel Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising continues to grow today, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that both Clara Mamet and rapper Nora Lum have boarded the film.

Incidentally, the former is best known for her recurring role on ABC’s sitcom The Neighbors, while Nora Lum – commonly referred to by her rapper pseudonym, Awkwafina –  is primed to make her feature film debt with Sorority Rising. Universal’s starry follow-up has been drafting in new cast members left, right and center in recent weeks, with the addition of Chloë Grace Moretz followed in quick succession by Selena Gomez. Each actress will reportedly star as eccentric members of rivalling sororities, which will no doubt throw up all kinds of trouble for Seth Rogen and Zac Efron’s returning characters.

Universal will be looking at the bigger picture, though. After raking a box office haul to the tune of $269 million last year, »

‘Sleeping With Other People’ Premiere: Alison Brie on Sex and Conversation in the Romantic Comedy

10 September 2015 12:41 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

At the Wednesday premiere for “Sleeping with Other People” at the ArcLight Hollywood, Alison Brie said the darkness was what drew her to Leslye Headland‘s romantic comedy.

“I love that the movie is a romantic comedy but it has a lot of depth to it and a lot of darker moments,” Brie said. “You see the characters alone a lot. Leslye was able to shift seamlessly from a dramatic tone to a comedic tone, even in the same scene.”

The movie follows Brie and Jason Sudeikis‘ characters, serial cheaters who can’t hold down a relationship, who meet 12 years after a one-night stand. Despite a mutual attraction, the two vow to remain just friends and help each other with their monogamy issues.

Brie said “Sleeping with Other People” felt like a more modern romantic comedy.

“I think it has a lot to do with the very candid dialogue,” Brie said. »

'Neighbors 2' Lands Selena Gomez

4 September 2015 8:48 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While most comedy sequels never live up to the original, Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising may finally be the exception to the rule. It's sticking pretty close to the formula that made the original 2014 comedy Neighbors such a hit, while also bringing a finely tuned twist. Not to mention some heavy artillery in the form of new cast members. First, the very popular Chloe Moretz was added as the leader of a sorority who moves in next-door to a married couple played by Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne. Now, Chloe Moretz's sorority sister has been revealed, and it's Selena Gomez!

Yes, the former Disney princess turned Spring Breaker is going to be throwing one massive hissy fit on the lawn of her sorority house, and E! was on the scene as shooting got under way. They even shared a photo of Selena Gomez as production continued through the night on the Atlanta set. »

Selena Gomez is joining the Zac Efron and Seth Rogen frat party in Bad Neighbours 2

4 September 2015 1:32 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Selena Gomez appears to have joined the cast of Bad Neighbours 2: Sorority Rising.

There's been no official announcement but she's been spotted on set in a party scene, so there's a fair chance she's one of the titular sorority.

The plot is being kept under wraps, but Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne and Dave Franco are all back reprising the roles from the first film, while Chloë Grace Moretz has been cast as the head of the sorority.

The original - known as just Neighbors in the Us - grossed $269 million and told the story of a couple battling to deal with the fraternity that moves in next door.

Andrew Jay Cohen is writing the update, with Rogen and Evan Goldberg producing and Nicholas Stoller returning as director.

Gomez's previous film credits include Spring Breakers and lending her voice to Hotel Transylvania and its upcoming sequel.

Neighbors 2 Adds Former Disney Starlet

3 September 2015 5:19 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

With Neighbors, Zac Efron was given the opportunity to grow beyond his Disney Channel image and take part in something a lot more adult. Now new reports have confirmed that Neighbors 2 will offer a similar opportunity to Selena Gomez, who has signed on for a part in the Nicholas Stoller-directed sequel. Variety has the scoop on this casting story, noting that the actress has been spotted on the set of the comedy - which is currently in production. No official details have been revealed about her role in the movie, though she was spotted wearing sorority girl-esque clothing. While this is just speculation, it wouldn't be hard to believe that she is playing a part somewhat similar to the one played by Dave Franco in the first Neighbors - which is to say that she will be second-in-command at the sorority house behind Chloe Moretz's character.

Selena Gomez Rocks Hot Pink Mini on Set Of "Neighbors 2" -- See Sexy Sorority Girl Look!

3 September 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

We. Can't. Wait.  Selena Gomez started shooting scenes for the highly-anticipated sequel of "Neighbors," "Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising," in Atlanta, Georgia on Wednesday.  Gomez looked pretty in pink as she appeared on set in a skin-tight strapless bandage dress with her shoulder-length tresses styled straight.   Judging from the photos, we're guessing the 23-year-old pop star is playing the head of another Greek organization on campus -- and it appears she's surrounded by pledges. But don't worry, Seth Rogen assured us that Zac Efron will most definitely be reprising his ab-tastic role as Teddy Sanders in the sequel. "Me and Zac will both have our shirts off," he told toofab while promoting Hilarity for Charity back in April.  Rose Bryne and Dave Franco are both returning as well and Chloe Grace Moretz will join Gomez as a fellow sorority girl.  Selena also appeared in a Snapchat from the set, where she »

To salute the release of American Ultra, we hunt down the subtle ways to spot an undercover agent on the big screen...

American Ultra - out in UK cinemas tomorrow - sees Jesse Eisenberg play a strung-out, stoner slacker, who as it happens is also a deep cover agent trained to be a lethal killing machine by the Us government. And when he’s marked for extermination, he stops getting high, and starts kicking ass and taking names.

From character pieces about the nature of identity to ludicrous third act reveals, the idea of someone going deep undercover has been a go-to trope in films for a very long time. But what if you are worried that someone around you could secretly be a deep cover agent? If so, here are some tips from the movies to spot if someone isn’t quite on the level.

"Congrats Davy and Allison!!!" James Franco wrote on Instagram Tuesday morning. "Engaged!!! I Wuuuuuv You ❤."
