Richard Gere and David Strathairn have signed on to appear in John Madden's "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" sequel for Fox Searchlight.

The new film sees Sonny (Dev Patel) and hotel co-manager Muriel (Dame Maggie Smith) continue with their business as Sonny juggles his plans for expansion and an impending marriage.

The hotel has only a single remaining vacancy, which poses a problem for new arrivals Guy (Gere) and Lavinia (Tamsin Greig).

Dame Judi Dench and Bill Nighy will also reprise their roles in the follow-up which just began production in India. The original film was a surprise hit, scoring $135 million from a budget of $10 million.
