A sequel to Girls Trip is finally moving forward, and the first details of the project have landed.
2017’s Girls Trip was a delightful film, and a breakout comedy as well. The chemistry of the four leads and a strong script resulted in a box office revenue of over $140 million.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, a sequel is now in the works (although it’s taken its time). Not much has been revealed at this stage, but Tracy Oliver, who co-wrote the first film, revealed on a Variety podcast that the plan is to set the action in Ghana, with the ladies attending the iconic Afrochella festival.
This also seems to confirm that all four leads – Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Tiffany Haddish – are on board.
Producer Will Packer is also returning, although it is not yet clear whether director Malcolm D. Lee or co-writer Kenya Barris will be back. Oliver has not yet submitted the script, so it could still be some time before it goes before the cameras.
We’ll keep you updated as we hear more.
