Producer of the hit 2017 comedy Girls Trip just made it official that the movie is finally getting a sequel. While on Good Morning America discussing the upcoming 2022 Oscars which he is set to produce, Will Packer announced that the sequel is “underway.” The film stars Hollywood’s favorite ladies, Queen Latifah, Regina Hall, Jada Pinkett Smithand Tiffany Haddish.
“Can’t we all use a post-pandemic trip, my friend? I think the time is actually right, and this is something that I will tell you and break right now at GMA: the Girls Trip 2 sequel, we are underway , “Packer told host Michael Strahan during the broadcast.
“We are absolutely in the stages, the ladies are in, I just talked to the director,” he added. “We are underway with Girls Trip 2, and now it’s just about what kind of trip do we take, right? Post-pandemic with all our favorite crazy ladies, what do we do with them? That’s what we got to figure out.”
In March of 2020, Tiffany Haddish revealed that she and her “Flossy Posse” Girls Trip costars had a zoom session where they brainstormed a destination for a potential Girls Trip 2 sequel. In May of 2019, Queen Latifah even expressed interest in a sequel while on People Now saying, “Everybody’s in, Everybody’s down for No. 2… so we’re just waiting for a script.”
She expressed ideas for where the friend group could travel this time. “I’ve been throwing Rio [de Janeiro] from the beginning… definitely down with South Africa too, “Latifah said.
The original Girls Trip was written by Tracy Oliver (First Wives Club, Little) and Kenya Barris (Black-ish, Coming to America), directed by Malcolm D. Lee (The Best Man), and follows a group of 4 college friends as they try to reconnect at the Essence annual music festival in New Orleans. The female-led film earned a high rating on Rotten Tomatoes of 92% and brought in $ 140 million at the box office despite low expectations. The film also garnered numerous accolades and awards like Black Reel Awards, two NAACP Image Awards, and an MTV Movie and TV Award.
We might not know where the group is headed next, but they will surely bring the same funny badass energy the second time around.
A release date has not been announced, but it will not be long before the flossy posse is back on screen.
