Angela Bassett Announces the “Waiting to Exhale” Sequel will Feature Original 1995 Cast

During a visit to “The Talk” last week, Angela Bassett says she has signed on to re-team with Whitney Houston, Loretta Devine and Lela Rochon for a sequel to “Waiting to Exhale.”

The movie, adapted from Terry McMillan’s 1992 novel of the same name, was directed by Forest Whitaker.

Bassett responded to recent speculation that the original cast are ready to reunite for the sequel, saying, “It’s preliminary, but it’s going to happen, Waiting to Exhale 2. McMillan wrote ‘Getting to Happy’ and she’s written the screenplay. … Loretta, Lela, Whitney, Forest. Forest is working on the script now.”

The 1995 film was a financial success, opening at No. 1 at the North American box-office and grossing $14.1 million in its first weekend of release. In total the movie made $67 million in the U.S. and a further $14.4 million internationally.

Bassett is in theaters now with “Jumping the Broom,” and recently finished work on the forthcoming superhero movie “Green Lantern” with Ryan Reynolds.
