'My Big Fat Greek Wedding' Is Getting a Sequel!

Nia Vardalos and John Corbett are set to return for a sequel of their 2002 hit movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding!

“Now that I’m experiencing motherhood, I’m ready to write the next chapter of my family story. Of course a few jaded folks in the press corps will claim I ran out of money or just want to kiss John Corbett again. One of these things is true,” the 51-year-old actress shared to Variety.

The sequel centers on “the lovably loud Portokalos family who return after a family secret is revealed and a bigger, fatter wedding brings the big fat Greek family back together again.”

In case you didn’t know, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, which had $5 million budget, grossed a whopping $368 million worldwide! The flick also led to a short-lived sitcom called My Big Fat Greek Life, which starred almost all of the film’s cast.

    This was such a bad film. I believe Tom Hanks and his wife were behind it in the first place; they saw her play or something and proposed a film. It was during the time when films about non-traditional heroines (i.e. non-traditionally sized heroines) were popular and ‘revolutionary’ – Muriel’s Wedding. Who’d pay to see something like this today? I don’t see it, personally, but the pro-marketers might think different. Chick films are all about glamour now.

    I thought it was a really good little rom-com, one of the better ones back then. A sequel could be fun, though the lack of originality in Hollywood is ridiculous. Action and superhero movies and sequels. No wonder nothing at the theaters interests me.

    How disgusting that this garbage can get a sequel and thousands of other scripts that are actually original are ignored. I hope this is a complete financial bomb. Cronyism needs to be eliminated.

    Shailene Woodley needs to be cast here. Either as a young Nia Vardalos or her offspring.

    Hm, what about My Life in Ruins?
    What is also a kind of sequel of My big fat Greek Wedding? I’m confused.

    @ Silb:
    That’s what I was thinking. Life in Ruins sucked, so I am pretty sure this sequel will suck too. Really, I don’t understand Hollywood. Why do they make so many damn sequels? Do they think that EVERY movie is Before Sunrise? I swear, that was the only movie that deserved sequels….

    I love this movie… It almost mimics my life. I’m full blooded Sicilian so, I can relate in every way. Funny thing is, when this movie came out I had people stopping me everywhere asking if I was Nia Vardalos or telling me that I look just like her. I take it as a compliment. I would love to meet her someday. The sequel to this movie will be great!!
