Are you ready for a ‘Soul Food‘ sequel? Rumor has it, Fox 2000 is gearing up for a sequel called More Soul Food, based on the 1997 ensemble film.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, George Tillman Jr., who wrote and directed the original, is writing the new script, along with Nathan Skulnik. State Street Pictures will produce the film, with Tracey and Kenneth ‘Babyface’ Edmonds.
The original Soul Food film featured an ensemble cast, including Vanessa Williams, Vivica A. Fox, Nia Long, Michael Beach, Mekhi Phifer, Jeffrey D. Sams, Irma P. Hall, Gina Ravera, and Brandon Hammond. The film centered on the trials of an extended African-American family, held together by longstanding family traditions which begin to fade as serious problems take center stage. Tillman based the family in the film on his own, and Soul Food was widely acclaimed for presenting a more positive image of African-Americans than is typically seen in Hollywood films.
