Christopher Mintz-Plasse Says Only Way to Make Superbad 2 Is With An All-Female Cast

It's been nearly 15 years since the world was introduced to McLovin and his pals in beloved teen comedy Superbad, and fans continue to argue as to whether there should be a sequel, or producers should leave the original alone.

Christopher Mintz-Plasse, who played Fogell aka McLovin, reckons it's such a good movie that there couldn't possibly be a direct sequel - but maybe an all-female cast could work for a follow-up.

Speaking on Glenn Kalina's radio series the actor said: "I've heard from some of the people who made the first one, and I don't think they want to touch it.

"I think they kind of like where it's sitting. And, sometimes if you make a sequel to things, it can kind of damper the first one."

But if Hollywood simply has to dive back into the storyline, then Mintz-Plasse reckons there might just be a way to get it done.

"I think they just want to let it be...If there was a way to do it, [a female version] would be the way, for sure," he added.

That would follow in the footsteps of a multitude of female-led reboots of movies that were previously led by male actors.

People had high hopes for the Ghostbusters reboot, with a strong cast and directorial team - however it didn't quite set the box office alight and is rated at 50 percent on review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes.

Meanwhile, the all-female Ocean's Eleven reboot Ocean's 8 also featured an all-star cast, but only copped 45 percent on the review website.

The critical consensus was listed: "Ocean's 8 isn't quite as smooth as its predecessors, but still has enough cast chemistry and flair to lift the price of a ticket from filmgoers up for an undemanding caper."

An all-female reboot of Pirates of the Caribbean is still on the cards, with Margot Robbie is set to lead and Birds of Prey's Christina Hodson down to write.
