Girls are expected to take over in Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, but the boys are back in town too. Dave Franco is the latest Neighbors star to sign on for the 2014 comedy’s sequel, according to The Wrap. He’ll reprise his role, alongside Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, and Rose Byrne.

In Neighbors, Franco plays Pete, the co-leader of a fraternity whose antics led to their house burning down. In need of a home (read: a place to host parties), the frat moves into a house next to new parents Mac (Rogen) and Kelly (Byrne). It doesn’t take long before the guys upset their new neighbors with their not-so-controlled noise level. Attempts to solve the problem amicably don’t work out, and a full-on prank war erupts. Hilarity ensues as the couple next door gives Pete and his co-leader, Teddy (Efron), a run for their money.

Neighbors 2‘s plot hasn’t been revealed yet, but the storyline involves a sorority with members played by Chloe Moretz, Kiersey Clemons, and Beanie Feldstein. Mac and Kelly’s friends from the original movie, Paula (Carla Gallo) and Jimmy (Ike Barinholtz), will also be part of the sequel. Nicholas Stoller, Andrew Jay Cohen, Brendan O’Brien, Rogen, and Evan Goldberg teamed up to write the script, and Stoller will also return as director.

Cohen, O’Brien, Nathan Kahane, and Joe Drake will serve as Neighbors 2‘s executive producers. Rogen, Golberg, and James Weaver will produce with Good Universe’s Erin Westerman and Point Grey’s Josh Fagen.

Most recently, Franco appeared in Unfinished Business, which was released in March 2015. He stars in the upcoming comedy Zeroville, again with Rogen, and will also appear in Now You See Me: The Second Act and Nerve, both of which are forthcoming.

Neighbors 2 hits theaters on May 20, 2016.
