Producer Will Packer and director Tim Story are on a roll with back-to-back hits in Think Like A Man in 2012, and Ride Along this year, one grossing an unexpected $91.5 million in box office, the other, even more surprisingly, topping the coveted $100 million mark ($106 million) domestically.
Can they make it a triple, with the upcoming release of Think Like A Man Too, the sequel to Think Like A Man, which was inspired by Steve Harvey’s best-selling book Act Like a Lady, Think Like A Man?
We’ll find out this summer, when the film opens.
As for what the sequel will be about: all the couples from the first film are back for a wedding in Las Vegas. But plans for what is supposed to be a romantic weekend go awry when their various misadventures get them into some compromising situations that threaten to derail the big event.
As producer Will Packer previously shared: “We’re excited to follow these beloved characters into the next chapter. The first movie was about our couples coming together. This one is a fun romp which explores whether these relationships can survive against the backdrop of Vegas.“
In addition to the stars from the first film returning (Taraji P. Henson, Michael Ealy, Kevin Hart, Terrence Jenkins, Jerry Ferrara, Romany Malco, Gary Owen, Gabrielle Union, Meagan Good, Regina Hall, Jenifer Lewis, and Wendy Williams), we can add Dennis Haysbert, Adam Brody, Wendi McLendon-Covey and David Walton to the film’s cast.
Tim Story directed from a script penned by Keith Merryman and David A. Newman, who also penned the first film.
Steve Harvey, Rob Hardy and Rushion McDonald return as executive producers.
Think Like A Man Too is scheduled for release on June 20, 2014.
The film’s first trailer arrived last week, and is embedded below. But first, here’s the first poster:
