“Baby Boy” tops most people’s lists of hood classics and in this day and age of remakes, revamps, and overdue sequels, it’s not surprising there’s discussion around the possibility of “Baby Boy 2.” But the question is, do fans even want it?
One person we know who wants it for sure is Tyrese. The actor who played the juvenile lead of Jody posted the poster below on his Instagram page this morning with no caption, leaving his followers with more than a question or two.
For starters, some want to know, is this actually happening? And the inclusion of Yvette’s ex-boyfriend Rodney on the poster has others, like Charlamagne, questioning, is “Snoop going to be resurrected?”
Tyrese has been on this “Baby Boy 2 Coming of Age” train for a minute now. One week ago he posted a photo of Taraji P. Henson and Snoop together, insinuating a sequel is happening.
And three weeks ago, he spread a similar message via photos of he and Taraji.
And then there was the flat out announcement of a sequel coming a week prior to those posts with this clip from “Baby Boy.”
Note: John Singleton was tagged in the video but has yet to confirm — or deny — any such sequel. Same goes for the rest of the cast members, suggesting no one wants this movie to happen as much as Ty. And considering he keeps taking down his posts about the movie, like these photos of Yvette and Peanut together from a day ago, I’m guessing they’re over him talking about what appears right now to be fictitious flick.
So question, do you want this sequel as much as Tyrese or could you do without it?
