MUMBAI: The director of the original film, The Sisterhood of The Travelling Pants, Ken Kwapis (He’s Just Not That Into You) will return to direct, with Liz Garcia (The Lifeguard) writing the script, The Wrap reports. Les Morgenstein, president of Alloy Entertainment, and Elysa Dutton, vice president of Alloy Features, will produce along with Christine Sacani.
From the New York Times bestselling author Ann Brashares, comes the welcome return of the characters whose friendship became a touchstone for a generation in Sisterhood Everlasting. Now Tibby, Lena, Carmen, and Bridget have grown up, starting their lives on their own. And though the jeans they shared are long gone, the sisterhood is everlasting.
Despite having jobs and men that they love, each knows that something is missing: the closeness that once sustained them. Carmen is a successful actress in New York, engaged to be married, but misses her friends. Lena finds solace in her art, teaching in Rhode Island, but still thinks of Kostos and the road she didn’t take. Bridget lives with her longtime boyfriend, Eric, in San Francisco, and though a part of her wants to settle down, a bigger part can’t seem to shed her old restlessness.
Then Tibby reaches out to bridge the distance, sending the others plane tickets for a reunion that they all breathlessly await. And indeed, it will change their lives forever—but in ways that none of them could ever have expected.
As moving and life-changing as an encounter with long-lost best friends, Sisterhood Everlasting is a powerful story about growing up, losing your way, and finding the courage to create a new one.
Alloy, along with Alcon Entertainment, was responsible for the first two Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants films, which starred Blake Lively (Gossip Girl), Alexis Bledel (Gilmore Girls, Mad Men), America Ferrera (Ugly Betty) and Amber Tamblyn (Two and a Half Men). The first film was released in 2005 and earned $42 million worldwide, and the sequel followed in 2008, earning $44.4 million worldwide.
“The Sisterhood series is one of Alloy’s most cherished properties and we are looking forward to continuing its legacy with Sisterhood Everlasting nearly a decade after the first film was released," said Morgenstein in a report. “The original film brought together an incredible group of talent who we hope to unite for fans once again.”
