Written and directed by John Singleton, “Baby Boy” follows Jody (Gibson), an unemployed man living with his mother. Jody maintains a romantic relationship with his child’s mother, Yvette (Henson), but that does not stop him from getting involved with another woman. The film also starred rapper-actor Snoop Dogg, AlexSandra Wright, Mo’Nique, and Omar Gooding.

Back in 2011, Singleton revealed he was planning to reunite Henson and Gibson in a new film. At the time, he emphasized it was not a sequel to “Baby Boy,” but shared that it was “a crazy, dysfunctional love story set in the hood.” Then, in 2015, the filmmaker revealed he already had a script.

“I have a script of a movie that I want to do. It’s kind of an allude to ‘Baby Boy’ but we have to figure it out,” Singleton said. “Taraji has an interesting schedule with ‘Empire’ and Tyrese has a lot of stuff going on, and I do. But we’re going to put it together. The audience just really wants to see those two back together.”
