's sequel to the successful Waiting To Exhale
is Getting To Happy
. The book will definitely be a movie and word on the street is that the original cast might return for the film version.
For those who don't remember, the original cast included Angela Bassett
as Bernadine Harris, Whitney Houston
as Savannah Jackson, Lela Rochon
as Robin Stokes (a role that both Robin Givens
and Halle Berry
wanted) and Loretta Devine
as Gloria Matthews. The film was also directed by Forest Whitaker
and included small roles from Wesley Snipes
, Dennis Haysbert
and Donald Faison
Waiting To Exhale
was a huge hit in 1995, grossing over $80 million and the 26th grossing film of that year. Also, the soundtrack was unforgettable -- what I wouldn't give to have Babyface
return for one of those various artists albums he was known for
The original cast is a must and it's a good look to see Whitney return to the screen in a role that people loved her in.
