Screen Gems “Think Like A Man” Getting A Sequel

Think Like A Man is getting a sequel. Deadline is reporting that the writers, Keith Merryman and David A. Newman, who wrote the hit film, have been hired to start working on the follow-up. The film which wasn’t expected to make a lot of money opened at #1 when it was released in April and has since grossed $91 million. The film starred many people from Gabrielle Union, Jerry Ferrera, Micheal Ealy to Meagan Good, Taraji P. Henson, Kevin Hart and Romany Malco. No stars announced yet for the follow up but Steve Harvey, author of the best-selling book the film is based on, will be returning as an executive producer.

Why are they making a sequel to this? Yes the movie was good and it was successful but that still doesn’t mean there needs to be a sequel. I think they did a good job of ending it where there is no need for a sequel. I hate when movies that studios and Hollywood don’t believe will make money do and so they think they can make the magic happen twice. Guess what rarely does that happen so they just need to stop because I can name on one hand the amount of sequels that were better than the originals.
