Chloe Moretz Joins Zac Efron, Seth Rogen in ‘Neighbors 2’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Chloe Moretz is in negotiations to join Zac Efron and Seth Rogen in Universal’s sequel to their 2014 hit “Neighbors.”

Besides Efron and Rogen, Rose Byrne is on board to return, with director Nicholas Stoller also coming back. The original was a surprise hit with $269 million in worldwide grosses.

The original revolved around a couple whose lives are turned upside-down after declaring war on the fraternity that moved in next door. The sequel’s plot is unknown, as well as the character Moretz will be playing.

Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver will produce under their Point Grey Pictures banner. Andrew Jay Cohen and Brendan O’Brien will serve as executive producers alongside Good Universe’s Nathan Kahane and Joe Drake. Writers include Cohen, O’Brien, Rogen, Stoller and Goldberg.

Moretz has made a career out of doing darker, edgier roles such as Hit Girl in the “Kick Ass” franchise and “The Equalizer.” “Neighbors 2” will mark the first comedy for the rising star.

She was last seen in “Laggies” opposite Keira Knightley and can be seen next in “Dark Places” with Charlize Theron and Sony’s “The Fifth Wave.” She is repped by WME, T Squared Entertainment and Sloane Offer.

The pic will bow on May 13, 2016.
