Nia Vardalos announced the story-line of her much anticipated ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ sequel that will unite the crazy Portokalos family again on the big screen. The Greek-Canadian actress posted on Facebook a message explaining how her daughter and her parenting experience helped her write “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2.”
Here’s the message she wrote:
Rita Wilson along with Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman will produce the film, along with Gold Circle’s Paul Brooks exec producing with Scott Niemeyer, Norm Waitt, Steven Shareshian and Nia Vardalos.
The plot involves the reveal of a family secret and a new wedding which brings the Greek clan back together again (the wedding is described as “bigger and fatter”). Most of the original My Big Fat Greek Wedding cast will film again for the sequel.
“Now that I’m experiencing motherhood, I’m ready to write the next chapter of my family story,” Vardalos has said about the new movie.
