#TBT: Loretta Devine, Dennis Haysbert Talk “Waiting To Exhale” Sequel … Four Years Ago!
Hey Internet, welcome to four years ago!
It’s making news today, but HipHollywood knew the deal four years ago — the “Waiting To Exhale” sequel has been in the works for quite some time. Loretta Devine, who played Gloria in the classic film, spoke about the project Wednesday while on Hollywood Today Live. But, here’s a little #TBT from 2012 when we spoke to Ms. Devine and Dennis Haysbert, who played Kenneth. The movie was then tentatively titled “Getting To Happy”.
It was shortly after the passing of Gregory Hines and Whitney Houston, and both Loretta and Dennis expressed some reservations about going forward with the film without the stars.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem as though much has change with the project in the last four years. Loretta told Hollywood Today Live that, “They’re still writing on it, for all we know… Everything happened so quick because Gregory passed and then Whitney passed and it’s like you can’t start a movie with two funerals and they were like the key characters and so everything just sort of got scattered after that but I think Terry McMillan is still trying to make it happen.”
