Regina Hall tells Buzzfeed News’ AM to DM, via EW, that a sequel to the comedy hit “Girls Trip” is in development.
Malcolm D. Lee helmed the critically acclaimed comedy which earned $140.4 million at the worldwide box office. The story followed four lifelong friends who travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival, and soon chaos ensues.
Speaking with the outlet, Hall says: “We’re trying to make that happen. 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.”
Lee added that they would like to make a sequel following the first one’s rave reception: “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. 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.”
Co-star Tiffany Haddish added that she’s been constantly bothering studio execs about a follow-up.
