How many nights have I been kept awake, wondering what had happened to John Corbett and Nia Vardalos in the days following their wacky wedding full of hacky jokes and guys named Nick? Soon I can finally find out! Is it true, oh Jesus, could my prayers have finally been answered?? Don’t toy with me now! For the past 12 years I’ve had a hole in my heart, that only mint jelly jokes could fill!
The stars and producers of 2002’s My Big Fat Greek Wedding have reunited to make a sequel to one of the most successful independent movies of all time.
Nia Vardalos has written the script for the project and will reprise her role as a first-generation Greek-American woman, while John Corbett is attached to reprise his role as the non-Greek who fell in love with her.
(*throws cap in the air*) Tzatziki!
Greek Wedding famously began as a one-woman play from Vardalos that told of her life growing up in a Greek household in Winnipeg and then marrying a non-Greek. Rita Wilson, who is half-Greek, saw the L.A. play and brought it to the attention of husband Tom Hanks.
I’d rather see “Fun Moms Who Drink,” starring Rita Wilson, Nia Vardalos, and Chet Haze.
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. [HollywoodReporter]
F*ck, dude. They told me it couldn’t get any bigger, fatter, or Greeker the first time around, and I totally believed them. I feel like such a fool now.
