News surfaced last year that a sequel to the 2011 romantic comedy was in the works, and now it looks like it's finally happening.

We've learned that Jumping The Broom 2 is moving forward from Our Stories Films and TD Jakes Productions. 

Recall that the original pic starred Paula Patton and Laz Alonso as a couple looking to unite their very different families over a wedding weekend on Martha's Vineyard.

This time around, the story is set in New York City, also with "two very different families" who come together for a wedding weekend.

Elizabeth Hunter, who penned the original movie, is attached as writer and producer, with Tracey Edmonds and TD Jakes producing and DeVon Franklin overseeing for Sony Pictures.

No word yet on whether Salim Akil will return to direct this film as he did the last. There's also no word yet on cast, and based on the plot description, it's uncertain whether any of the actors from the original film will be involved. 

But for now, it seems the film is coming back in some form or another. So what say you? Are you looking forward to Jumping The Broom 2?

    The aesthetics were on point, but the acting of the leads, histrionics in the script and predictability were disappointing. I was glad to see a non-Tyler production make it to the screen, but I wonder if Jakes kept the story from being more believable and complex.

    And Paula is better in action movies where she doesn't have to carry a narrative.

    No . . . one was quite enough

    No thanks, I'll be sitting this one out, just as I did the previous one.

    Haven't heard of this happening from those involved, though I know they've talked about it.

    This movie was mediocrity at its finest. Everybody got paid, nobody cared. Across the board, textbook, B-list, video-store-shelf, non-threatening mush.

    Having said that I congratulate all involved on making a living and may I add I'm a big fan of your work.

  • what? | March 10, 2014 7:36 PM

    uh maybe YOU didnt get paid but SOME people did. you must of been an extra

  • Jones again | March 10, 2014 7:17 PM

    Hey "Me"...you've already seen my movie, baby. Promise.

    winkwinkwink

    by the way... nobody got paid. we all did it because we wanted to make a movie about a black family that defied the cinematic stereotypes at the time. nobody got rich or even earned their industry quotes. thanks for your critique. we all look forward to seeing your a-list movie that we will all surely care about.
