It’s such a classic that I don’t want you to touch it. On the flip side, I would support a reboot. I wish you could make another classic instead though. You’re kind of good at that. Classics are your “thing.” 😂— S. Marlene Wimberly (@2BGMEDIA) January 8, 2019
Let’s use that budget for a new movie. Something new and fresh. Leave BAPS alone 😩— Cooter Brown (@New_Jack) January 8, 2019
But many also seemed open to it, including actress Danielle Brooks who once dressed up as one of the characters for Halloween. Byer, who wrote the film based on her own life, took to her Instagram to thank those who responded positively to the idea of a sequel. “I am so touched by all the love around [Robert Townsend] and his question about making a sequel to #BAPS,“ she said. ”I wrote #BAPS based on my painful and once shameful personal experience when I went from living in the hood to living in a women’s homeless shelter and then finally moving to Bel-Air.“ She continued: “I used to be so embarrassed by my lack of education and knowledge of proper etiquette, but I never let that stop me from pursuing my passion and living purposefully.” Berry has yet to comment on the sequel chatter.
