It’s been 13 years since My Big Fat Greek Wedding became a true sleeper hit sensation, grossing hundreds of millions of dollars and becoming the most successful independent movie ever made at the time. Writer/star Nia Vardalos never quite captured that magic again, and now she’s returning to her most popular character for My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2.
You can watch the first trailer below.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Gold Circle Entertainment and HBO present a Playtone production of My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, the long-awaited follow-up to the highest-grossing romantic comedy of all time. Written by Academy Award® nominee Nia Vardalos, who stars alongside the entire returning cast of favorites, the film reveals a Portokalos family secret that will bring the beloved characters back together for an even bigger and Greeker wedding.
‘Kirk Jones (Nanny McPhee, Waking Ned Devine) directs the next chapter of the film that will be once again produced by Rita Wilson and Playtone partners Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman. Paul Brooks and Steve Shareshian return to executive produce alongside Vardalos and Scott Niemeyer. Universal Pictures will distribute the comedy in the United States and in select international territories.’
The film will be out in the UK next March.
