Suggested Title: “Coming Back To America”
What would happen if Prince Akeem and Semi return to the U.S.A. for a trip to the West Coast? Would Semi find love? Is McDowell’s still in business? So many question waiting to be answered!
Suggested Title: “Love & Basketball 2: Junior Varsity”
It’s been 15 years since we left Sanaa Lathan and Omar Epps. We’re sure they aren’t on the court anymore BUT wouldn’t it be great if their little ones started coming up in the basketball game?
Suggested Title: “Set If Off All Over Again”
It’s probably safe to say that Smokey’s (Jada Pinkett-Smith) bank robbing days are behind her. But could there be another foursome breaking into the heist game?
Suggested Title: “Ready To Inhale”
Things won’t be the same without Whitney Houston but we’re positive a sequel will still take our breath away.
Suggested Title: “Why Stella’s Keeping Her Groove”
Based on author Terry McMillan’s story of meeting her now ex-husband Jonathan (who later announced he was gay), we’d love to know what happens as Stella returns to single life.
Suggested Title: “2 Much Sugar” (get it?)
Let’s be honest. All we really want is another dope soundtrack. Someone call D’Angelo.
Suggested Title: “Boomerang 2: Coming Back Around”
This story of a player who gets played never gets old. Do Angela (Halle Berry) and Marcus (Eddie Murphy) ever tie the knot?
Suggested Title: “Harlem Sunrise”
They say when the sun goes down, they own the town. But what happens to the gangsters when the sun comes back up? Inquiring minds want to know!
Suggested Title: “After The Vows”
We’d love to know more of what happens as Roland deals with marriage, and how far Mike (Omar Epps) and Alicia’s (Sanaa Lathan) relationship goes.
Suggested Title: “Even Better Blues”
Denzel has only gotten finer with time. We’d love to see him come back in a continuation of this classic Spike Lee joint.
Suggested Title: “School Daze 2: Post Grad”
Will fraternity letters, light skin and straight hair matter so much when they’re all trying to pay back those student loans? We’d like to find out.
Suggested Title: “The Five Heartbeats 2: The Reunion Tour”
By now, The Five Heartbeats have each retired and moved on. But this sequel could bring them together for the comeback concert we’ve all been waiting for.
Suggested Title: “Higher Learning 2: Back to School”
John Singleton tackles race and class in this 90s classic set on a college campus. Do the same issues exist on today’s college campuses? We’d love to see it on the big screen.
Suggested Title: “The New New Jack City”
Will a new drug kingpin rise up to take Nino’s place? Is Scotty satisfied with his revenge? A remake could hold all the answers.
Suggested Title: “Cisely’s Chance”
Meagan Good and Jurnee Smollett are all grown up now. We want to know how the sisters have been getting on since Cisely’s dramatic encounter with their late father.
Suggested Title: “Love Supreme”
We’ll always love the poetry of Love Jones. Besides, we’d do anything to hear another Darius (Larenz Tate) poem. “There’s talk about [a sequel],” Nia Long told ESSENCE.com. “Larenz and I, if we do it, we’re going to do it right, and we’re gonna do it together.”
Suggested Title: “Jason’s Other Lyric”
We’d love to know what happens after Jason (Allen Payne) and Lyric (Jada Pinkett Smith) leave Houston.
