Pineapple express doesn't really merit a sequel on quality grounds or lend itself to a sequel narratively, why not just make another random stoner movie?

rocky_howard: That's like getting charged twice. Plus in order to get the movie you need to chime in with at least $35 which is much more than a movie ticket or an iTunes download of the film.

For $35 bucks for the Veronica Mars movie you get the digital download on the day of that theatrical release. To me that is an awesome deal since it is cheaper than 2 movie tickets and a babysitter.

As far as pineapple express goes this kind of bugs me. Kickstarter worked for VM because it is going to be a tiny movie, and while the star is famous it is not like she is a huge A list actor who can get anything she wants made. James Franco and Seth Rogan are huge stars and the movie was produced by Judd Apatow a guy with a huge amount of clout in hollywood. If those guys can't get that movie greenlit then maybe it shouldn't be. And if a studio won't give them the money I would think those three guys would be rich enough to secure it on their own.

Not to mention, why the hell does a movie like Pineapple Express need 40 million bucks to get made?

I like Franco... I like Rogen... and my wife and I were eagerly anticipating Pineapple Express after seeing the trailer. It's the only movie we've ever walked out of.
