Girls Trip is coming to Ghana for its sequel, Writer-director-producer Tracy Oliver announced the news while at Sundance over the weekend.
The original film Girls Trip which starred Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Tiffany Haddish will reunite the full cast in Ghana for the second iteration of the movie, according to Oliver, Variety reports.
The ladies of Girls Trip will look to attend the popular Afrochella (Afro Future) festival which takes place in Ghana annually attracting prominent musical acts from the region. Girls Trip was directed by Malcolm D. Lee, produced by Will Packer, and co-written by Kenya Barris and Oliver.
The first “Girls Trip” was a significant box office hit, grossing $140 million worldwide on a modest $16 million budget. Malcolm D. Lee directed the project, produced by Packer and co-written by Oliver and Kenya Barris from a story they conceived with Erica Rivinoja. It also launched the recently-embattled Haddish into superstardom.
Oliver has been on a festival tear the past year, premiering her acclaimed horror comedy “The Blackening” at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival. The movie, directed by Tim Story, was acquired by Lionsgate on the heels of TIFF and will release this coming Juneteenth.
“Harlem,” which stars Meagan Good, Grace Byers, Jerrie Johnson, and Shandai, will debut its season two in a weekly rollout on Prime Video starting Feb. 3.
