Nia Vardalos, John Corbett to Reunite for 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding' Sequel
By Antoinette Bueno
The stars and producers of My Big Fast Greek Wedding are reuniting for a sequel more than a decade after the Nia Vardalos film became a surprise hit, the Hollywood Reporter reports.
Vardalos has already written the script for the project and will reprise her role as Toula Portokalos, while John Corbett is attached to also reprise his role as Ian Miller, the non-Greek who fell in love with her.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the plot of the new script involves the reveal of a family secret and a new wedding, described as “bigger and fatter,” that brings the Greek clan together again.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding earned a surprising $241 million at the domestic box office when it came out, and even spawned a CBS sitcom spin-off, My Big Fat Greek Life.
"Now that I'm experiencing motherhood, I'm ready to write the next chapter of my family story," Vardalos said. "Of course a few jaded folks in the press corps will claim I ran out of money or just want to kiss John Corbett again. One of these things is true."
