I hope I am not the only one psyched about this. I love that movie!! Nia Vardalos is so wonderful. It’s just a great, perfect movie.
In the 12 years since the release of My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Vardalos has gone on to star in movies such as For a Good Time Call… and made cameos in hit TV shows including Grey’s Anatomy and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. She also adopted a daughter Ilaria, 9, with her husband Ian Gomez in 2008, which she cites as an inspiration for the upcoming sequel.
“Now that I’m experiencing motherhood, I’m ready to write the next chapter of my family story,” she said in a statement.
“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,” she joked. “One of these things is true.”
Nia is writing the sequel, and Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson and Gary Goetzman are producing. I have good feelings about this! It’s gonna be good, I can feel it in my bones. If not, we’ll just spray a little Windex on it.
