The sequel to the hit Waiting to Exhale, is still in development despite the sudden death of star Whitney Houston.
“It’s almost in [Houston’s] honor that we think to soldier on,” Fox 2000 president Elizabeth said.
A rep for Fox studios confirms that the movie, which is based on Terry McMillan’s best-selling novel, starred Houston, Angela Bassett, Loretta Devine, and Lela Rochon as a group of friends dealing with their many relationship problems.
The follow up to the 1995 hit will be adapted from McMillan’s book ‘Getting to Happy.’
Oprah Winfrey reportedly may take a role in the upcoming film, which has been in development since 2010 with Exhale director Forest Whitaker attached.
No start date has been finalized as of yet, more details to come…
