One of these things is true." On this good news, let's look back at why everyone went crazy over this movie in the first place. With the help of GIFs, of course. »

Nanny McPhee Helmer To Direct My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2

11 November 2014 12:45 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In 2002, the indie hit of the year, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, blew up at the box office. Considered one of the biggest independent successes of all time, it pulled in a gargantuan $368 million worldwide off a tiny $5 million budget.

Now, some twelve years later the comedy about an inevitably hilarious culture clash is finally getting a big screen sequel in My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2.

Initial reports earlier this year hinted that a follow-up was on the cards, and The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that development has begun. Universal has nabbed the distribution rights to the pic, and Nanny McPhee director Kirk Jones is signed on to helm the comedy. Thus far, the English filmmaker’s resume consists of romcoms, including Waking Ned, »
