Waiting to Exhale Sequel Gets A Scribe

Michael Elliott (“Like Mike,” “Brown Sugar”) has been hired to perform re-writes on the “Waiting to Exhale” sequel entitled “Getting to Happy” at Fox 2000 says The Hollywood Reporter.

Terry McMillan, who wrote both the ‘Exhale’ and ‘Happy’ novels, penned the initial draft of the ‘Happy’ script. Lori Laken Hutcherson then came onboard and is now being replaced by Elliott.

Elliott is currently performing scribe duties on “Guarding Cole,” “Looking for Jimmy Lee,” and a contemporary re-imagining of the opera “Faust” for MTV.
