Focus Features' Book Club 2 – The Next Chapter, which will reunite icons Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, and Mary Steenburgen, will hit theaters on Mother's Day, May 12, 2023. Currently, there are no other wide releases that weekend, though that will likely change as studios continue to iron out their schedules.
The film is written by original helmers Bill Holderman and Erin Simms, with Holderman returning to the director's chair for this second installment.
Part two will see the four best friends take their book club to Italy, experiencing the fun girls trip they never had. But when things go off the rails, their relaxing vacation quickly turns into something quite a bit more.
While the original film saw the ladies' book club dive into E.L. James' 50 Shades of Grey, no word yet on which title will serve as the backdrop for this international adventure.
Andy Garcia, Don Johnson, Craig T. Nelson, Giancarlo Giannini, Huge Quarshie, and Vincent Riotta also star.
The first Book Club earned $104 million worldwide.
