Back in 2012 Fox Searchlight released The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, a charming and delightful little film that was very well received. In fact, praise for the film was so strong that the company decided to do something that they’ve never done before: make a sequel. That’s right, production is about to get underway on The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel 2 with several of the original cast members set to return (Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy and Dev Patel). Furthermore, today, Fox Searchlight has announced that two more well-respected talents have joined the film in the forms of Richard Gere and David Strathairn.

In addition to revealing the two new cast members, the studio also released a pretty lengthy plot summary, which can be viewed below:
