"Neighbors" was a surprise hit when it debuted last year, and now, the cast for its sequel is starting to take shape.

Variety reports that Chloe Grace Moretz is currently in negotiations to co-star in "Neighbors 2," which is re-teaming leads Zac Efron and Seth Rogen. There's no word yet on who Moretz is playing, and no plot details about the sequel have been released so far.

"Neighbors 2" will mark a rare foray into comedy in Moretz's already-impressive career. Perhaps this is a turning point for the young actress? After all, her soon-to-be-costar, Rose Byrne (who's also reprising her role from the original), was also a primarily dramatic actress before she became a comedic powerhouse in flicks like "Bridesmaids" and "Spy."

Along with Efron, Rogen, and Byrne, director Nicholas Stoller will also return for round two. Stoller's co-writing the screenplay with a team that includes Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Andrew Jay Cohen, and Brendan O'Brien.

"Neighbors 2" is due out on May 13, 2016.
