The 1997 comedy-melodrama Soul Food focused on an African-American family and their increasing struggles after the death of matriarch Mother Joe, whose meals and wisdom kept them together. Famously, the film of course ends with an after-the-credits sequence in which Mother Joe's gnarled, decaying hand erupts from a mound of black-eyed peas and her haunting voice demanding to now herself consume the souls of all who have eaten her soul food. So, only makes sense then that Fox 2000 would at last be at work on the sequel clearly set up there.
THR reports that original writer-director George Tillman Jr. is currently prepping a script with Nathan Skulnik, and the title of the follow-up will, naturally, be More Soul Food. It's not yet clear if stars Vanessa Williams, Vivica A. Fox, Nia Long, Mekhi Phifer, or anyone else will be returning, as it's said the new film "will chronicle the new, millennial generation of the Joseph family ... in the age of cell phones and social media." So now they'll just order the soul food on Seamless, and the conflict will just be whether or not they should call, because it's taking fucking forever.
