Can you believe that in July, it will be a year since Girls Trip came out? It feels like a few years have passed based on all of the fame Tiffany Haddish has obtained in such a short time. But whether its been one year or feels like a couple, fans are looking forward to a sequel. So when can we expect it?
If you ask star Queen Latifah, she says the cast still speaks with one another regularly and they’re all on board for a follow-up to the 2017 hit. The only thing is, they’re waiting on a script — and to figure out where the sequel could be filmed. (*Crosses fingers for somewhere in Africa while also expecting somewhere in Europe…*)
“We’re actually working it all out. I know they’re writing it and we’re all down, so it’s just a matter of time. We’re just waiting for a script, script, script, script, script, script,” she said in a chat with The Times-Picayune. “We all still talk all the time. We love each other to death. I can’t wait to get together and cut up in some location. We’re not sure where we’re going to do the dirt this time, but who knows? It could be Essence all over again.”
The star told the publication that she’s glad to see the success the film garnered, as well as the way it has inspired other women to get back in touch with old friends.
“That movie inspired a lot of women to reconnect with their friends, and I’m just happy about what it was able to do for women, period. Not only to be just this huge female-driven comedy, but to really reconnect people to their buddies, their college friends and their family members,” she said. “I saw so many drunk people going through airports: ‘Yeah! We just came from our girls trip!” And they just wouldn’t stop.'”
