Last year’s hit-comedy, Top Five, proved to be a major accomplishment for writer/director/actor Chris Rock, so much so that he is now being pressured by producer Scott Rudin to get a follow up in the theaters as soon as possible. Rock revealed to The Guardian in a recent interview that he and Rudin are having meetings on the subject on a weekly basis, and that he is planning on using a majority of the Top Five cast for the new project. Some names that have already been mentioned include Leslie Jones (The League, Workaholics), Tracy Morgan (30 Rock, Cop-Out), and Jerry Seinfeld (Seinfeld, Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee), but nothing as far as casting goes is set in stone, and Top Five had a huge repertoire of stars to write a sequel for, such as Gabrielle Union (Bad Boys 2, Cadillac Records), Rosario Dawson (Clerks 2, Sin City), Kevin Hart (Think Like A Man, Get Hard), Whoopi Goldberg (Ghost, Sister-Act), and Adam Sandler (Grown-Ups, Pixels). We’ll keep an eye out for further updates.
