The 1997 ensemble drama 'Soul Food' is getting a remake which will be titled 'More Soul Food'
Fox 2000 is working out a sequel to the 1997 ensemble drama 'Soul Food,' which will be titled 'More Soul Food.'
The upcoming sequel will be written and produced by George Tillman Jr, who scripted and directed in the first film.
He would co-write alongside Nathan Skulnik and co-produce via his State Street Pictures, along with Tracey Edmonds and Babyface Edmonds.
The original film featured an ensemble cast that included Vanessa Williams, Vivica A. Fox, Nia Long, Michael Beach, Mekhi Phifer, Jeffrey D. Sams, Irma P. Hall, Gina Ravera, and Brandon Hammond.
The 1997 film followed the trials of an extended African-American family, held together by longstanding family traditions which begin to fade as serious problems take center stage.
In 2000, Showtime premiered a one-hour television series based upon the film, which ran all through 2004.
The upcoming sequel will follow the new, millennial generation of the Joseph family in the age of cell phones and social media, as they struggle to rediscover the importance of tradition and family.
The original 1997 movie earned $43.7 million.
