The buzz in the book world is the release of Terry McMillan’s Waiting to Exhale sequel, Getting to Happy. New information reveals that not only does the original book have a sequel, but the movie sequel is now also in the works. McMillian announced just days ago that she has completed the new script and 3 of the 4 actresses have already signed on for their former roles. I wonder who’s missing? Whitney maybe? Maybe. If you haven’t seen the excerpts posted in Essence magazine or on their online blog, check the link here. I can’t say that I’m too excited about what I’ve seen so far, but that doesn’t mean I won’t pick up the book…one of these days.
In the meantime, watch McMillan discuss the latest related news via the Fox 29 Philadelphia website:
Are there any other directors/producers available to make this film—beyond Tyler Perry? I guess we’ll see. More book news to come. We’re just getting warmed up.
Happy reading, y’all!
