Screen Gems Greenlights Sequel To Box Office Smash 'Think Like A Man'

Not a surprise.

Producer Will Packer did state earlier this year before the movie was released that Screen Gems would back a sequel to Think Like A Man if the first one did well.

And it did well, grossing over $91 million on a $12 million budget. A no-brainer if there ever was one.

Lots of questions to be answered here, like: will the entire cast return? What will the story (or stories) follow? Will Tim Story return to direct?

We know that Will Packer will return to produce via his Rainforest Films shingle, with partner Rob Hardy, and Steve Harvey (who wrote the book the first film was based on) returning to executive produce. 

Writers Keith Merryman and David A. Newman who wrote the first one will do the same for the sequel. 

No date as to when production will begin, nor when it can be expected to be released.

Stay tuned...

    I just hope the writing is good and interesting for the second time around. I also hope this second film takes a risk and goes beyond the predictable romantic comedy storylines.

    Well, I'm in the minority when I say I didn't like the film. I felt so dissatisfied with it when I saw it. So, you know my thoughts about this sequel... :(

    I agree with Mr. Thompson. I don't think there's really any reason for a sequel. Unless, Steve Harvey has written a book about marriage that could be adapted for film. That might be interesting.

    Shake the cast up. I need rent money.

    I enjoyed the film, but I don't know that I need a sequel.

    I have a theory that injecting traditional Hollywood fare with a shot of black faces makes an average flick 3/5 better than it would have been. (that's right, "The 3/5ths Rule") Take away the cast and this movie could have easily become "Valentine's Day" or "new Year's Eve" In the wake of TLAM's success I'm not going to be surprised to see Garry Marshall develop "Juneteenth" a rom-com about 12 star crossed afam lovers who may just find true love, if they can figure out what the heck "Juneteenth" is, and what it truly means.
