Nia Vardalos has written sequel to hit comedy My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

Playtone, HBO and Gold Circle are developing a sequel to 2002’s hit comedy My Big Fat Greek Wedding.

Nia Vardalos and John Corbett will reprise their roles from the first film.

Written by Vardalos, the sequel will be produced by Rita Wilson, Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman.

Paul Brooks, Scott Niemeyer, Norm Waitt and Steven Shareshian will executive produce, along with Vardalos.

Good Universe will handle international sales.

The sequel will centre on the reveal of a family secret and a new wedding that brings the Portokalos family back together again.

Vardalos commented: “Now that I’m experiencing motherhood, I’m ready to write the next chapter of my family story. Of course a few jaded folks in the press corps will claim I ran out of money or just want to kiss John Corbett again. One of these things is true.”

The first film made over $360m worldwide, including $241.4m from the US.
