Actor and comedian Tiffany Haddish has opened about the possible roadblocks in creating a sequel to the 2017 hit movie, Girls Trip.
During a recent interview with the Huff Post, Haddish told a reporter that she recently was on a call with her co-stars, Regina Hall, Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith. Haddish said that they had arranged the call to check up on one another during this pandemic. She later explained that the topic of a sequel arose during the call.
As Haddish explains it, writer Tracy Oliver already has a treatment in place for the film. Unfortunately, the comedian says money has remained a roadblock in creating the film.
“Then it was like, ‘Oh, you guys want too much money,’” she said.
The actress reportedly made roughly 80,000 initially from the film. It is unclear what her co-stars made from the film.
Despite their differences, she says that the crew will speak again on Friday to begin writing a second film.
“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,” she continued.
This summer will mark the three year anniversary of the film’s release. On a $20 million budget, it managed to make nearly $150 million at the box office.
