In an interview with TheWrap, director Tim Story said his upcoming projects include “Ride Along 3,” with Ice Cube and Kevin Hart expected to reprise their roles as buddy cops.

“We’re writing the script right now, we’re writing away and basically, I’m waiting to see some pages and we’re excited for the idea and what it can be and of course bringing Kevin [Hart] and Ice Cube back together because they are the greatest odd couple in the world,” he said. “I’m impatiently waiting for a script to be given to me. We have some great ideas.”
