First announced back in May, Universal Pictures has acquired domestic and some international distribution rights for My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, with original My Big Fat Greek Wedding stars Nia Vardalos and John Corbett reprising their roles as Toula and Ian.
Kirk Jones (Nanny McPhee) has signed on to direct from a script by Nia Vardalos, which centers on another family wedding that exposes a longtime family secret and brings the Portokalos family back together again. No other cast members have been confirmed at this time.
Playtone partners Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson and Gary Goetzman are returning to produce the sequel, as they did on the original My Big Fat Greek Wedding, which grossed over $241 million domestically and $368 million worldwide, making it one of the most successful indie films of all time. No production schedule was given for the sequel.
