A sequel of Johnson Family Vacation is in the works
The film will see the return of Cedric the Entertainer as Nate Johnson
A sequel to the 2004 comedy Johnson Family Vacation is in the pipeline. Johnson Family Celebration will pick up nearly two decades after the events of the original film, and will see the return of Cedric the Entertainer as Nate Johnson, the well-meaning patriarch of the Johnson family that embarked on an ill-fated cross-country road trip.
Along with DeVon Franklin and his Franklin Entertainment banner, Cedric will produce with Eric Rhone through his A Bird and A Bear Entertainment. Taylor Friedman will oversee for the studio. Zahra Phillips will oversee for Franklin Entertainment.
Michael Elliot — the writer behind Like Mike and Just Wright — will pen the sequel.
Franklin was most recently in theaters with faith-based film Breakthrough, which grossed an impressive $50 million at the global box office.
