My Big Fat Greek Wedding sequel is on the way

My Big Fat Greek Wedding is getting a sequel.

The original 2002 movie starred Nia Vardalos and John Corbett aka Aidan from Sex and the City.

They will both be returning for the new release.

Nia is also set to write and direct the movie.

The original movie saw a young Greek woman fall for a non-Greek, who her family initially struggled to accept.

This time around the over-bearing Portokalos family will come together after a major secret is revealed. There will also be another wedding – this time even bigger than the first.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding was one of the most successful independent movies of all time.

Nia said that promoting the tenth anniversary of the picture had got her thinking about an on-screen reunion with John, who was desperate for the project to take place.

“When John and I recently sat down to do that interview, we laughed so hard through the whole thing. It made me think that it’s time,” she said.
