‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2′ is Coming to Answer All Those Unanswered Questions

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2

2002’s ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ was a box office phenomenon when it was released. Really, it was a legitimate phenomenon that made over $240 million domestically and is still one of the most successful independent films ever made. Though it may be a little late in the game, there’s now a ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2′ on the way.

This news comes from The Hollywood Reporter, who note that original stars Nia Vardalos and John Corbett will return, while Vardalos will also be writing the film as she did with the first film. It’s not all that surprising that Vardalos has been working on a sequel: she made a stab at being a movie star, but films like ‘Connie and Carla,’ ‘I Hate Valentine’s Day,’ and ‘My Life in Ruins’ failed to repeat the ‘Big Fat Greek’ magic, so this is the best way for her to get back on the big screen.

And magic it was. ‘Wedding’ emerged in 2002 with the biggest names being ‘Northern Exposure’ star Corbett, and NSYNC performer Joey Fatone. Without a huge national ad buy, the film became a word of mouth blockbuster and is currently the ninetieth highest grossing film domestically. It could very well be the last great word of mouth success, as the home video window rarely gives films a chance to find an audience the way this film did. Currently ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2′ doesn’t have a director attached, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the film hits theaters next year.
