Due to the unexpected success of the “urban” romance comedy Think Like A Man, Sony Screen Gems has begun pre-production on a sequel for the film. Think Like A Man is the adaptation of Steve Harvey’s relationship advice book.
In terms of the cast, at this point it’s not clear who will be returning. The original Think Like a Man starred Michael Ealy, Kevin Hart, Taraji P. Henson, Meagan Good, Gabrielle Union and Romany Malco.
Ultimately the film became a sleeper hit, boasting a box office tally of $92.7 million worldwide with just a $12 million production budget. This put the film in the running for being one of this year’s most profitable comedies.
“Friends with Benifits writers, Keith Merryman and David A. Newman, have been hired to pen the script. However, the studio has not made it publicly known whether Tim Story, the original film’s director, would be on board for the sequel.
Despite the rush to green light the Think Like a Man sequel, a firm release date has yet to be announced.
