Remember the romance movie Love Jones? Well, word on the street is that there might be a sequel!
Larenz Tate, who played poet Darius Lovehall in the 18-year-old movie, recently commented on how much love and attention Love Jones still receives today.
“I gotta say, there has not been one day since I’ve been on social media that someone hasn’t mentioned Love Jones,” Larenz told MadameNoire.com.
Even though he is working on two new projects, USA’s “Rush” and BET’s “Gun Hill,” doing a sequel to Love Jones with co-star, Nia Long, is definitely top on his list.
“Nia and I, I’ve been trying to figure out, do we do the sequel? Is there a way to do a sequel? Is there a way to do a continuation? Or is there a way to do a part two? We’ve been creating all kinds of scenarios,” he said. “It’s still very much so at the top of our conversations. It has become a priority. We have to address this. What are we going to do because the audiences in that time, not only do they celebrate the movie, they want to see what happened.”
It’s not an easy task to do a sequel to Love Jones or any movie that is loved by so many people.
“It’s really tough to figure out how you catch lightening in a bottle twice. The movie was such a success. Maybe not when it first came out, but over the years it’s become such a cult classic. It’s become such a groundbreaking movie for our generation and now the next generation is picking it up,” he said.
