The film, directed by Tim Story, is set for release on Martin Luther King Day weekend, Jan. 15, 2016, the same weekend the original film premiered in theaters in 2014. The film also stars Ken Jeong (A.J.), Olivia Munn (Maya Cruz), Tika Sumpter (Angela Payton), Benjamin Bratt (Pope) and Glenn Powell (Troy).
