It’s fair to guess you haven’t see one of this year’s biggest earners — but enough did to warrant a sequel. Oh, and not another on-the-cheap Christian movie starring Kirk Cameron — I’m pretty sure one came out this year, anyhow — but Think Like a Man, a romantic comedy that earned some big dollars despite boasting a predominantly black cast made up of relative unknowns.
And, now, it’s getting a second installment. A press release has announced movement on an untitled follow-up, for which screenwriters David A. Newman and Keith Merryman will be returning to script; Rainforest Films are producing once again and, while no cast members (or director Tim Story) have been roped in for a second go-round, Kevin Hart‘s recent reteaming with Screen Gems makes his return more or less pre-determined. I’d think the rest follow along, every financial thing being taken into account.
The original is based on Steve Harvey‘s self-help book Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man — thanks to that, a title for the second movie should be pretty easy to decide on — and was about a group of women who try to govern their partners by way of his writings. (Talk about a vanity project.) So, maybe there’s just more material to mine from the book? While the decision is clearly financial (duh), they could always go back to the well and bang out another one — the box office potential is too much to resist.

In the case of evaluating David Cronenberg, — or at least forming the sort of career narrative seemingly essential to auteurist analysis — it’s inevitable to propose something of a rupture within his oeuvre: the very evident graduation from grindhouse to arthouse, and, with it, an ascension from body to mind. What dictated these labels […]

Writing about the films of Robert Bresson usually begins by informing reader that his films must be discussed through a trance of hushed tones and quiet veneration. There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
