The 2002 indie sleeper hit “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” is returning to theaters next spring with a new sequel. Stars Nia Vardalos and John Corbett have reunited for the next chapter in the whacky family rom-rom. Fans curious to see where their characters' love story will go next got a little preview of the couple’s home life thanks to an Instagram photo posted by Vardalos. As to why Corbett’s character was shirtless in a restaurant? We’ll just have to watch the movie.
The photo came shortly before writer and star Nia Vardalos announced filming had wrapped for the sequel. The photo featured the two stars in the kitchen of the Portokalos family restaurant seen in the first film. Us Magazine reports the couple will reprise their roles as Toula Portokalos and Ian Miller. Plans for “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2” were announced in 2014.
