Did Jada Pinkett Smith just confirm ‘Girls Trip’ sequel is happening?
The Flossy Posse is getting together again.
It looks like the Flossy Posse will reunite for a Girls Trip sequel and we are so here for it.
Regina Hall hinted that the follow up to the incredibly successful comedy is in the works which means we may be in for more big laughs and it seems like Queen Latifah and Tiffany Haddish will definitely be back for the flick.
“We’re trying to make that happen…We’re trying to get everything together with the schedule. I think they’re working on something,” Hall told BuzzFeed. I don’t know where we’re going. I don’t know where the girls are going, but… we’re going somewhere. The girls are coming back!”
While we were excited to hear Hall suggest a sequel was coming, Jada Pinkett Smith confirmed it’s really happening in an Instagram post on Wednesday.
The movie directed by Malcolm D. Lee and written by Kenya Barris and Tracy Oliverearned $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.”
