Regina Hall: ‘Girls Trip 2’ a strong possibility
"I don’t know where we’re going. I don’t know where the girls are going, but… we’re going somewhere,” Hall says.
The highly successful movie Girls Trip will probably make a second stop at the big screen, according to actor Regina Hall.
Hall told BuzzFeed’s AM to DM that members of the “Flossy Posse” are busy coordinating logistics, but assured fans that the crew is “trying to make that happen.”
“We’re trying to make that happen,” Hall told BuzzFeed about the blockbuster that also starred Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah and breakout star Tiffany Haddish, according to Entertainment Weekly. “So we’re trying to get everything together with the schedule. I think they’re working on something. I don’t know where we’re going. I don’t know where the girls are going, but… we’re going somewhere.”
The movie directed by Malcolm D. Lee and written by Kenya Barris and Tracy Oliver earned $140.4 million globally after its premiere in 2017, according to EW. In the film, four college friends reunite at Essence Festival, which takes place annually in July in New Orleans, where they party, reopen old wounds, embrace identities and growing closer.
The movie’s success proved in cinema circles that movies featuring women—Black women—in leading roles will do well. Lee said he’d like to do a sequel.
“The audience really took to it,” he told EW. “I think they’d want to see what the Flossy Posse is up to next and I’m hoping that we can make that happen and bring that to the masses.”
Lee also told the entertainment news site, “It has to be a little bit bigger, it has to be just as good, just as funny, just as outrageous and that takes time. We’ve got to figure out how that’s all going to come together and coalesce in a script and make it worth our time as filmmakers, their time as actors, and the audience’s time as consumers. So we don’t want to do it if it’s not going to be great. We want to make sure that it’s a quality piece of work.”
