Superbad -- The College Years?

With its super-good opening weekend ($31.2 mil), Superbad is on track for late-summer box office success. Which begs the question: will producer Judd Apatow and screenwriting duo Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg succumb to temptation and studio pressure, and spawn a sequel?

What say the Superbad stars, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera and Christopher "McLovin" Mintz-Plasse? Sequel talk from an interview a few weeks ago:

MICHAEL CERA: So far, there's just been discussion among our friends.

CHRISTOPHER MINTZ-PLASSE: Evan [Goldberg] said if you want to make a sequel, he said he’d combine Superbad and the upcoming movie he's working on, The Pineapple Express [a potheads-and-cops action comedy].

JONAH HILL: I think there’s nothing serious going on. I also think it’s weird to talk about making a sequel to a movie that hasn’t come out yet, or done well. That’s like the worse thing you can do.

MC: Sequels, generally, you push your luck, it’s like you overstay your welcome.

JH: It's so, so rare that a sequel is better than the original.

CMP: 28 Weeks Later... --it’s unbelievable.

JH: I’m the only person who thinks that Back to the Future 2 is better than Back to the Future 1. Everyone makes fun of me for it.

MC: Why do you think the second one is better?

JH: It’s the future.

MC: Because he's got the hoverboard?

JH: The almanac, the sports almanac, man, come on! And Godfather 2 they say is better than Godfather 1.
