Reiner tells Deadline that the hope is to release the sequel around the 40th anniversary of the original, with it currently set to come out on March 19, 2024. Reiner adds that they want to honor the original and "push it a little further with the story". The sequel will find them thrown back together after years of bad blood as they prep to play a big concert.
