Bigger, fatter and better than ever? Nia Vardalos hopes so.
The writer and star of My Big Fat Greek Wedding has confirmed she’s working on a sequel to the 2002 megahit, with John Corbett set to reprise his role as her love interest as well.
“I’m working on the MBFGWedding sequel; now that I’m experiencing motherhood I feel ready to write this next chapter,” Vardalos, 51, wrote on Twitter. “A few jaded press corps will claim I ran out of money or just want to kiss John Corbett again. One of these things is true.”
After an outpouring of well wishes from fans, she added: “Thank you for the love, yes the entire big fat family is invited back for the sequel.”
The upcoming film, which does not yet have a director attached, will include the reveal of a family secret and an even “bigger and fatter” wedding that brings the family together, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
