jumping the broom

*Finally! It’s happening.

Jumping the Broom 2” has been green lighted by Our Stories Productions and TD Jakes Productions.

The original movie had an ensemble starring cast — including Laz Alonso, Paula Patton, Loretta Devine, Mike Epps and Angela Bassett.

The film focused on two VERY different families coming together (but not really) for a weekend wedding on Martha’s Vineyard.

The second film will be set in New York City when two very different families come together again for a weekend wedding. Will they actually come together or cause chaos? Probably chaos.

Elizabeth Hunter is attached to write the screenplay and produce after writing the original film. Tracey Edmond and TD Jakes are producing as well while DeVon Franklin is overseeing Sony Pictures.

There are two questions on everyone’s mind:

Will Salim Akil  return as director? No word yet.

And will there be any connection to the first film (other than plot) with returning cast? Once again, no word yet. But Hunter is the original writer, so she’ll probably find a way to bring back some of the cast from the first film.

Nevertheless, fans can still be happy that a sequel is finally in pre-production.
