'Waiting' Sequel Moving Forward Without Whitney
Last May, Angela Bassett revealed on CBS' The Talk that a Waiting To Exhale sequel was happening. "It's preliminary, but Waiting to Exhale 2 is gonna happen," Angela said at the time. "[Terry McMillan] wrote Getting To Happy and she's written the screenplay ... I'm talking Loretta [Devine], Lela [Rochon], Whitney, Forest [Whitaker] is working on the script now."
And according to the studio head, Whitney Houston's shocking death doesn't put the project's future in jeopardy.
"It’s almost in her honor that we think to soldier on," Elizabeth Gabler, president of Fox 2000 Pictures, told Vulture. Although she's quick to add, "There is no movie without a great script," and a completed draft has yet to be turned in.
So it sounds like Exhale fans will have to hold their breath a little bit longer. In the meantime..
