Waiting To Exhale 2 Is STILL Happening Without Whitney Houston

waiting to exhale sequel still happening without whitney houston

No surprises here, given the fact that the original Waiting to Exhale soundtrack is topping the music charts!

Back in May, we were pleased to hear that a Waiting to Exhale sequel was happening, and that the entire original cast would be returning.

Now, Fox has announced that they'll still be moving forward with the Exhale sequel, even though Whitney Houston has passed away.

Here's what Fox 2000 Pictures president Elizabeth Gabler had to say about why the studio isn't axing the sequel:

"I don’t think she would want it to. It’s almost in her honor that we think to soldier on."

And here's more from Gabler on replacing Whitney in the movie:

"We literally have not talked about anybody for that part. Forest, I know, is just…grieving. He’d been the one who was speaking with her, updating [Houston] on its progress."

We just hope that the studio puts A LOT of care into this movie. Whoever replaces Whitney in her role will have some HUUUUGE shoes to fill.

What do U think? Should they still make this sequel without Whitney???

    THIS MESS IS GONNA FLOP!!!!!!! THE REASON THE ORIGINAL WTE AND SOUNDTRACK WAS SUCCESSFUL IS BECUZ EVERYONE WANTED TO SEE AND HEAR WHITNEY HOUSTON. PLAIN AND SIMPLE. NOW SHE'S GONE NOT ANYONE ATTACH TO IT - ANY REPLACEMENT IS GONNA FAIL. YOU CAN MAKE MASS WHITNEY FANS ALL OF A SUDDEN ATTACH THEMSELVES TO SOME NO NAME ACTRESS OR EVEN KNOWN ACTRESS. THERE'S ONLY 1 WHITNEY HOUSTON NOT 100. CANT FORCE PEOPLE TO ACCEPT ANYTHING LESS. WHAT A JOKE… YEA, THEY CAN MAKE THE FILM BUT DONT EXPECT HOUSTON'S MILLIONS OF WORLDWIDE FANS TO GRAVITATE TOWARDS MEDIOCRITY. IN FACT, ANGELA BASSETT SAID THE REASON SHE TOOK THE ORIGINAL ROLE IN '95 WAS TO WORK WITH WHITNEY. AS USUAL THE STUDIOS ARE JUST TRYING TO MAKE A BUCK CAUSE CANCELING EVERYTHING INVARIABLY MEANS THEY LOSE THE MONEY BAG. JUST LIKE CLIVE AND NEIL PORTNOW OF NARAS NOT CANCELLING THE PRE-GRAMMY PARTY AFTER HER DEATH! THIS SEQUEL WILL MAKE AS MUCH MONEY AS MEL GIBSON'S FUTURE FLICKS, LOL. SHAMEFUL!!!

    This movie is not going to work without Whitney. The other actresses in the original were phenomenal, especially Angela Basset. But Whitney was the heart and soul of the the movie. Not gonna see #2.

    Loved this original but did not see it for Whitney alone, went based on reviews. May work or may not, loved the book which is why I saw the movie.

    The first movie worked because it was based on an amazing book…as is the sequel. People want to see this because they love the characters, not because of a name attached. If it's any name to love, that name is Terry McMillan. It's tragic to lose Whitney but doesn't ruin a great story, or great film to be made.
