'Think Like A Man' Sequel Moves Forward As Original Writers Brought Back To Pen Followup

While everyone is talking about "The Avengers" becoming a massive, massive hit -- and yes, it is kind of a big deal -- one of the other box office stories this year that got less play has to do with Screen Gems' "Think Like A Man." On paper, it didn't seem like much. An adaptation of Steve Harvey's advice book "Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man," and featuring some names, but not exactly big stars, with Kevin Hart, Romany Malco, Taraji P. Henson, Gabrielle Union, Michael Ealy, J.B. Smoove, Regina Hall and Morris Chestnut, the film surprisingly took the top box office spot for two straight weekends in April and cruised its way to over $90 million at the box office. Nice. And so, a sequel is on the way.

Think Like A Man

While everyone is talking about "The Avengers" becoming a massive, massive hit -- and yes, it is kind of a big deal -- one of the other box office stories this year that got less play has to do with Screen Gems' "Think Like A Man." On paper, it didn't seem like much. An adaptation of Steve Harvey's advice book "Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man," and featuring some names, but not exactly big stars, with Kevin Hart, Romany Malco, Taraji P. Henson, Gabrielle Union, Michael Ealy, J.B. Smoove, Regina Hall and Morris Chestnut, the film surprisingly took the top box office spot for two straight weekends in April and cruised its way to over $90 million at the box office. Nice. And so, a sequel is on the way.

Screen Gems has gone ahead and hired original writers Keith Merryman and David A. Newman to write the script for the followup, and that's about all the details for now. No word if Tim Story will come back to direct, or who from the cast will return, but considering Kevin Hart just signed on to the studio's remake of "About Last Night..." its probably a no-brainer that he'll be on board.

And this is usually the part where we're snarky, but why would we be? This was a film made modestly, that found it's audience and was successful. It's all gravy, baby. And hey, anything that promises more Kevin Hart on the big screen is fine by us. [THR]
