“My Big Fat Greek Wedding” sequel is in the works! “Now that I’m experiencing motherhood, I’m ready to write the next chapter of my family story,” said Nia Vardalos, who wrote and stared in the 2002 box office hit. “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 is in the middle of her best selling book, “Instant Mom,” so the sequel is still very early in production. What is known is that she will reprise her role in the sequel and John Corbett will return as her love interest. The plot of the story will involve around another wedding and the revelation of a family secret.
The producers, Tita Wilson, Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman, of the first flick will be producing the sequel, while Paul Brooks, Scott Niemeyer, Norm Waitt, Steve Shareshian and Vardalos her self will be exec producing the film. Playtone, HBO and Gold Circle will also be in the project again.
