Anyone who’s been hungry for more “Soul Food” will finally get the a second serving, now that a sequel to the 1997 classic is in the works.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox 2000 is putting the wheels in motion for the film, with original “Soul Food” writer and director George Tillman Jr. on board to write the script with Nathan Skulnik.

Producing the sequel will be Tillman’s State Street Pictures, along with Tracey and Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds. Greg Mooradian will oversee the project for Fox 2000.

The first “Soul Food” member featured an all-star cast that included Vanessa Williams, Vivica A. Fox, Nia Long, Michael Beach and Mekhi Phifer. The film, which made $43.7 million at the box office, centered on a close-knit African American family with a long-standing tradition of eating a big dinner together every Sunday. Following the death of their matriarch, that bond begins to fall apart.

The success of “Soul Food” gave way to life on the small screen with the arrival of a Showtime TV series, “Soul Food: The Series.” The show, which aired on Showtime, ran from 2000 through 2004.

“Chronicling the new, millennial generation of the Joseph family, the “Soul Food” sequel will dive into the age of cell phones and social media as the once-close clan finds themselves disconnected. With the guidance of elders who have always held things together, the Joseph family members struggle to rediscover the importance of tradition and family.

    I say don’t do it! Create a new family movie. That movie was a classic and a sequel wouldn’t do it justice, leave well enough alone. The TV series was good enough.
