Olivia Munn set for Ride Along 2

Olivia Munn could be going for a Ride Along with Kevin Hart and Ice Cube.

The Magic Mike actress is in talks to join the pair in the upcoming sequel to their buddy cop comedy, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The actors are returning as security guard Ben (Hart) and police detective James (Ice Cube), with the follow-up having been announced shortly after the first film took the box office by storm earlier this year.

Olivia, 33, is negotiating about the part of a homicide detective who will also be a love interest for James.

Variety reported that schedules are being worked out so that Olivia can shoot the film as well as the next series of her TV show The Newsroom.

Tim Story is returning to direct the sequel, which is set to be unveiled in 2016.

Olivia has several movies in the pipeline including crime horror Deliver Us From Evil and Mortdecai, which will see her sharing the screen with Johnny Depp.
