Join me as I rejoice, ladies! According to Angela Bassett, our favorite female right of passage film “Waiting To Exhale,” is getting a sequel! While Angela reveals that producer are still working on a script, she is in good faith!

Producers have a long road ahead of them. Whitney Houston’s character Savannah played a central role in the movie and her passing may be difficult to incorporate into the script (if they plan on addressing it all). Angela shared her thoughts on the sequel with HuffingtonPost.

Terry McMillian shared her thoughts on the sequel to “Waiting to Exhale,” and revealed that the film’s producers were still up in the air about Whitney Houston’s character, “Savannah Jackson.” What’s the latest status?

They’re still writing. One of our original producers, from the first “Exhale,” is on board. So that’s a good sign, but they’re still working on the script. It’s just how to deal with it [Whitney’s loss]. And probably the best way to deal with it is just deal with it. It’s like what happens in life, in a way. Life is about life in passing, living and dying, winning and losing. So that’s what I know so far.

If the producers decide to proceed with the storyline of “Savannah,” is there anyone that you would like to see play the character?

Not off the top of my head. That would be interesting for the fans to decide. I wonder if they [the producers] have done any outreach that way. Who would the fans like to see, or what they would like to see. I don’t feel like replacing that character is the most respectful way to go, because in my heart I love Whitney and her work and the time that we shared together. Her role and her presence was just so important. I have a hard time replacing someone else in her shoes. I guess they wouldn’t have to do that. We would have to just come up with a brand new friend.

    They should not keep the character I think they should reunite because of the death our their friend. No it has been done to death but I don’t think trying to replace the character would be good.

  2. I think paula patton would be perfect for savannah she is tall beautiful and she has that it factor,
    plus she is very talented so I think they should make friends with Paula Patton, Not vanessa she is just not doesn’t have that it factor.
