Though 2012 has already seen its fair share of box office hits, one of the bigger surprises was the April comedy Think Like a Man.  The film opened at number one at the box office with an impressive take of $33.6 million, ending the four-week run of The Hunger Games and besting new releases The Lucky One and Chimpanzee.  The pic went on to make over $91 million during its run, and now Screen Gems has officially announced that they’re moving forward with a sequel.

No story details are known, but Keith Merryman and David A. Newman will be returning to write the screenplay.  The first film was based on the best selling book by Steve Harvey and featured an ensemble cast dealing with relationships.  No release date has been set either, but expect Think Harder Like a Man to be in front of cameras sooner rather than later.  Hit the jump to watch the trailer for the first film and to check out the press release.
