Queen Latifah, Regina Hall, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Tiffany Haddish may soon be jetting off to Ghana for a Girls Trip sequel.

The film’s co-screenwriter Tracy Oliver gave an update on the sequel while speaking with Variety at the Sundance Film Festival about her Prime Video series Harlem.

“No one else knows this and [producer] Will Packer might kill me, but we’re looking to set it in Ghana,” Oliver said about the sequel.

Girls Trip was released in 2017 and became a runaway hit. The film followed Queen Latifah, Regina Hall, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Tiffany Haddish as they went on a weekend getaway to a New Orleans music festival. The movie was directed by Malcolm D. Lee, and earned $140 million at the worldwide box office on a reported budget of $16-$19 million. Kenya Barris and Tracy Oliver wrote the script.

In January 2022, Will Packer appeared on Good Morning America to talk about his gig producing last year’s Oscars and said he was working on Girls Trip 2.

“I think that the time is actually right,” Packer said, although he admitted the team behind the film hadn’t decided on a location yet. “Post-pandemic with all our favorite crazy ladies, what do we do with them? That’s what we got to figure out.”

In her new update, Oliver said all of the original cast is returning. Although she admitted the script isn’t quite done yet.

“I need to stop drinking and do more writing,” she quipped.

Oliver’s other big project, Harlem stars Meagan Good, Grace Byers, Shoniqua Shandai, and Jerrie Johnson. The comedy drama returns for a second season on Feb. 3.
