Girls Trip 2’ writer confirms sequel Is ‘officially happening,’ and the Movie is expected to be filmed In Ghana.
During an interview, Tracey Oliver, co-creator, writer, director and producer of the original comedy, updated on the upcoming reunion of Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith and Tiffany Haddish.
While promoting her Harlem video series, Oliver announced that she had one final update on Girls Trip 2.
She said the film is “officially underway. I can say that.” She also hinted at the plot, noting that the film’s producer, Will Packer, “might kill me and we’re excited to set it in Ghana.”
With a modest budget of $16 million, the first “Girls Trip” was a box office success, grossing $140 million worldwide.
The film was produced by Packer, directed by Malcolm D. Lee, and written by Oliver and Kenya Barris from a plot they co-developed with Erica Revinoja.
It also helped Haddish, who has been the subject of controversy lately, to become a household name.
The Blackening, Oliver’s critically acclaimed horror comedy, premiered at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival. Oliver broke down in tears at the festival recently.
According to TIFF, the Tim Story-directed film was picked up by Lionsgate and will be released on June 19th.
Season 2 of Meagan Good, Grace Byers, Jerrie Johnson and Shandai “Harlem” premieres on Prime Video starting February 3.
