My Big Fat Greek Wedding sequel in development

May 28th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

According to Variety, Gold Circle and HBO Films along with Playtone Productions have begun developing a sequel to the box office hit My Big Fat Greek Wedding. They report that stars Nia Vardalos and John Corbett would be reprising their roles.

The story follows the lovably loud Portokalos family who return after a family secret is revealed and a bigger, fatter wedding brings the big fat Greek family back together again.

Vardalos had this to say:

“Now that I’m experiencing motherhood, I’m ready to write the next chapter of my family story. Of course, a few jaded folks in the press corps will claim I ran out of money or just want to kiss John Corbett again. One of these things is true.”

Vardalos will write and star, with Playtone’s Rita Wilson, Tom Hanks, and Gary Goetzman producing.
