Off of its tiny $5 million budget, 2002′s My Big Fat Greek Wedding became one of the biggest indie hits of all-time as it raked in over $368 million worldwide.  Earlier this year, we reported that the sequel was moving forward, and that Nia Vardalos would write the script and return to star alongside John Corbett.  Details on the plot are scarce, but the story will contain “the reveal of a family secret and a new wedding, described as bigger and fatter, that brings the Greek clan together again.”  Wacky Greek shenanigans!  People saying “Opa!”  Your mom and her friends going to see it 18 times!
