“Valentine’s Day” Sequel “New Year’s Eve”
Film fans are getting a second helping of Valentine’s Day.
Valentine’s Day — which features an all-star lineup that includes Jessica Biel, Ashton Kutcher, Jamie Foxx, Patrick Dempsey, and Julia Roberts — opens in theaters this Friday, Feb. 12, just in time for the most romantic day of the year on Sunday. And anticipating a huge opening weekend for the romantic blockbuster, producers at New Line Cinema are already busily working on a sequel to the ensemble comedy, Variety said Monday.
Director Garry Marshall is stepping behind the camera again to helm the buzzed-about follow-up, New Year’s Eve. The Valentine’s Day sequel will feature many of the same characters descending on New York City on Dec. 31 to watch the old year turn into a new one filled with possibilities, according to the trade paper.
The film is slated for release late next year.
