t may have been a surprise to some in Hollywood, but those a bit more aware of the market knew that Think Like A Man would perform well at the box office. Now, after grossing nearly $100 million at the domestic box office, comes word that a sequel is on the way.
The Hollywood Reporter has the details:
Screen Gems is moving ahead with a sequel to Think Like a Man, its hit movie based on the Steve Harvey book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, closing deals with Keith Merryman and David A. Newman to write the script.
Merryman and Newman write the first movie, which made Hollywood notice star Kevin Hart and grossed over $91 million domestically when it was released in April 20.
The movie followed four couples where the women use Harvey’s advice to reign in their men.
Will Packer will return to produce via his Rainforest Films banner. Harvey is executive producing on the project alongside Rushion McDonald and Rob Hardy.
It is unclear which castmembers will return at this stage, although Hart is a likely candidate, since he just joined Screen Gem’s About Last Night remake.
Who’s ready for the sequel and wants every single original cast member back?
