Traveling Pants Sequel Planned

Alcon and Warner Bros. have set director Sanaa Hamri (“Something New”) to helm a sequel to the 2005 film “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” reports Variety.

The original ensemble cast – America Ferrera, Amber Tamblyn, Alexis Bledel and Blake Lively – are all in talks to reprise their roles.

Scripted by “Pants” co-writer Elizabeth Chandler, the sequel uses as its foundation “Forever in Blue,” the fourth “Pants” novel by Ann Brashares. Elements of the second and third books will also be incorporated.

The girls once again take different paths during the summer, but remain bonded by a pair of secondhand pants they take turns wearing.

Now college age, the girls have storylines that take place in Turkey, Greece, New York, Vermont and Providence. Due to the more adult issues faced by 19-year-old girls, a PG-13 rating is likely.

Shooting will begin June 3rd starting in Greece, then moving to New York and Connecticut.
