‘Think Like A Man’ Sequel In The Works
“Think Like a Man” was the biggest surprise romantic comedy hit of the year so far, managing to gross an impressive $91 million off of a movie that only cost $12 million to make. So it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Screen Gems is lining up a sequel to their hit film.
The production company announced the news today, saying that the first movie’s writers, Keith Merryman and David A. Newman, will return to pen the sequel. Will Packer and Steve Harvey will also be returning to produce the project. There’s no guarantee that the stars of the film or director Tim Story will be back for more, but we have a gut feeling that they will be. It’s not like Gabrielle Union, Chris Brown and Taraji P. Henson really need the work, but “Think Like A Man” did seem like a fun movie to make.
The first flick was based on comedian Steve Harvey’s relationship self-help guide called “Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man.” There’s likely plenty more in that book that wasn’t used in “Think Like A Man” that can be included in a second movie. And with Harvey producing, he will likely end up collaborating with Merryman and Newman to make sure the sequel will stay true to his original ideas. Who knows, maybe it will even be called “Act Like A Lady.”
