Universal reveals March 2016 release for My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2
There’s at least one film going up against Warner Bros.’ Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016—and it’s not Captain America: Civil War. According to Variety, Universal Pictures has slotted My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 for a March 25 release date. EW confirmed the news with the studio.
The sequel, which was officially announced last November, will focus on a “bigger, fatter wedding” that will bring the Portokalos family together for a second time. Nia Vardalos is set to return as both the star and a screenwriter, with Kirk Jones (Nanny McPhee) directing. Rita Wilson and Playtone partners Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman will produce the film, which will be executive produced by Vardalos, Paul Brooks, Scott Niemeyer and Steven Shareshian. The original film debuted as a surpise hit in 2002, grossing $240 million in the U.S. and $368 million worldwide.
