Director Gregory Jacobs has said that the sequel will be different from the first film, saying, “It’s a road trip movie, and put it this way: It’s different enough that once you see it you’ll understand why we made a sequel… No one will be accusing us of making the same movie twice.” 

Matt Bomer and Joe Manganiello will be reprising their roles. 

Amber Heard, Gabriel Iglesias and Andie MacDowell are also cast additions.
