Chloe Grace Moretz Fights for the Right to Party at ‘Neighbors 2’ Premiere

Chloe Grace Moretz offered up a serious dissection of Universal’s raucous comedy “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising” during Monday night’s premiere at the Regency Village in Westwood.

“The girls really are fighting for their right to party,” she reflected on the red carpet. “The film is using comedy to address a serious issue that impacts women, something like what Amy Schumer does.”

Moretz, who plays the pot-smoking sorority leader who thoroughly aggravates neighbors, played by Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne, admitted the role is a major variation in a drama-dominated resume. “We really were a sorority,” she added.

Awkwafina, who makes her film debut in “Neighbors 2,” said the partying felt real. “I liked smoking a ton of fake weed, and even though it gave me a headache, it was a good headache,” she added.

Writer-director Nick Stoller admitted that he and the four other writers came up with dozens of scenarios for the sequel. “We thought of every variation of men versus women before we came up with this one,” he added.

Ike Barinholtz suggested that “Neighbors 3” be set in space. “We should have it set on the International Space Station, where Seth and Rose are just trying to get away,” he said.

Rogen, who wrote, produced and starred in the film, said the third movie should look to high schoolers: “There’s no one scarier,” he added.

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising” opens Friday.
