Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Tiffany Haddish are all reuniting to star in the sequel ‘Girls Trip 2.’
Writer-director-producer Tracy Oliver confirmed the project is a go and will see the rambunctious ladies head to Ghana to attend the Afrochella festival, which has attracted prominent musical acts from the region, including Beyonce collaborate Shatte Wale. A production timeline is unknown as Oliver still needs to submit her script.
At the Sundance festival to promote the second season of her Amazon Prime Video series ‘Harlem,’ Oliver said she had a “definitive ‘Girls Trip 2’ update. That it’s officially happening. I can say that.”
The first ‘Girls Trip’ was a box office hit, grossing $140 million worldwide on a modest $16 million budget. Malcolm D. Lee directed the project, produced by Will Packer and co-written by Oliver and Kenya Barris from a story they conceived with Erica Rivinoja. It also launched Haddish into superstardom.
Oliver has been touring the festival circuit for the past year, premiering her acclaimed horror comedy ‘The Blackening’ at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival. The movie, directed by Tim Story, was acquired by Lionsgate on the heels of TIFF and will release this coming Juneteenth.
