(LOS ANGELES) — Tiffany Haddish is giving Girls Trip fans a much-needed update on the status of the film’s long-awaited sequel.
As you may recall, Haddish’s Girls Trip co-star, Queen Latifah, had previously said that “everybody’s down” for the new film and they were simply “waiting for a script.” But now, in an interview with HuffPost, Haddish says it’s a little bit more complicated than that.
During a recent two-hour Zoom call Haddish had with Latifah, Regina Hall and Jada Pinkett Smith to check in amid the COVID-19 pandemic, she said they also spoke about the sequel. According to Haddish, the studio was waiting for a script, though Tracy Oliver, who co-wrote the first film, had already done a treatment.
“Then it was like, ‘Oh, you guys want too much money,’” Haddish said, adding that she had only made $80,000 for the 2017 comedy, which followed four best friends as they reconnected for their “last hurrah” in New Orleans.
According to Haddish, that’s when she and her co-stars decided it might be best to take matters into their own hands and get together on their own to come up with a script.
“We might decide not to even make it Girls Trip,” Haddish said. “Maybe we’ll do a different story just in case no one wants to make Girls Trip 2.”
There’s no word yet on what the plot might be or when this “different” sequel would launch.
