Trivia: When it was originally reported that Danny McBride would be a co-writer on the film, many assumed it was referring to the screenwriter Danny McBride, whom wrote several entries in the "Underworld" film series. It wasn't until shortly after that it was revealed that the Danny McBride co-writing the film was indeed the comedy actor best known for films including "Pineapple Express" and "This is the End." McBride is a huge fan of the original film, and together with director David Gordon Green, wanted to make a proper sequel to the original film after finding the other sequels hit-and-miss.
