Indie Wire is reporting that Our Stories Films and TD Jakes Productions have confirmed a sequel to the 2011 romantic comedy, Jumping the Broom, starring Paula Patton and Laz Alonso. Apparently, it has been rumored for quite some time that there would be a follow up to the film but nothing had been totally confirmed until now.
Jumping the Broom followed Patton and Alonso as a couple looking to unite their very different families over a wedding weekend on Martha Vineyard. The film featured an all-star cast including Angela Bassett, Loretta Devine, Meagan Good, Tasha Smith, DeRay Davis, Mike Epps, Valerie Pettiford, Pooch Hall, Romeo Miller, Gary Dourdan and Brian Stokes Mitchell.
Reportedly, the sequel will also follow “two very different families” who come together for a wedding weekend in New York City. Tracey Edmonds and Bishop T.D. Jakes are on board as producers with DeVon Franklin overseeing it for Sony Pictures.
It has not been confirmed if the film’s original director, Salim Akil will be back or if the original cast will reprise their roles.
RC will keep you posted as the project continues to develop.
