There will be a sequel to the 1995 classic women empowerment movie “Waiting To Exhale” according to author Terry McMillan.

McMillan who is the author of the original book and movie adaptation, announced plans for another movie in the series on her Twitter. The film will be based on the follow up novel, Getting To Happy.

She tweeted “We are working on the script for HAPPY. Will know in about a month or so when we’ll begin production. Probably on screens in 2012.”

Leading actresses from the first film Angela Bassett and Loretta Devine have already been rumored to showing interest in reprising their roles.

Neither Whitney Houston or Lela Rochon have confirmed or denied interest in the next film.
