Hot on the heels of word that Paramount is reworking its planned sequel to the fantasy film "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" into a TV series, ABC is reportedly looking at doing a TV series sequel to the popular Julia Roberts romantic comedy "My Best Friend's Wedding".
ABC has signed on for a script commitment plus penalty for the project which would pick up right where the events of the 1997 movie left off. Roberts' character Julianne will be in New York City living life and still getting advice from her gay pal George.
Ron Bass and Jessica Amento are writing the script for the follow-up while original producers Jerry and Janet Zucker will be back to executive produce alongside Bass and Mike Menchel. Roberts, Dermot Mulroney, Rupert Everett and Cameron Diaz are not expected to reprise their roles.
