Yes, according to MTV, the long-rumored sequel to 2008's stoner action/comedy hybrid 'Pineapple Express' may be getting closer to reality. The news comes courtesy of an interview with 'Pineapple' star James Franco, who told the network that "I think some practical steps are being taken to actually make it happen."

Franco, of course, has been spreading his wings recently with a number of offbeat projects including a two-month stint on the venerable soap opera institution 'General Hospital.' But while that gig had grandmas of all ages swooning over the big screen heartthrob, most fans have been hoping for a return engagement for 'Pineapple Express,' which parlayed strong pre-release buzz into a tidy $87 million domestic take and instant cult status.

Considering the film only cost $27 million to make, a sequel would seem to be a no-brainer, with only the practicalities of the project -- possibly including working out the schedules for high demand stars Franco and Seth Rogen -- standing in the way of making it happen.

Now, though, it seems the vision of 'Pineapple Express 2' is one step closer to reality.
