Girls Trip has been one of Hollywood's biggest success stories of 2017 The critically adored comedy passed the $100m mark earlier this week and is the highest grossing live-action comedy of the year so far.


Naturally, fans are keen for a sequel and Hollywood economics would suggest that it's likely to happen. Producer Will Packer told Vulture that there are conversations about a Girls Trip 2, though he was keen to stress how challenging the prospect of another outing can be for a hit comedy.

“We’re definitely talking about it”, Packer said. “The only thing harder than opening a studio comedy today is opening a studio comedy sequel. That’s the next challenge. I love our team. If anybody can do it, we can do it. It’s still a little early – the movie is still in theatres – but it’s something we’ve all thought about.”
