Gabrielle Union Confident "Think Like a Man Too" Will Be a Hit
(NEW YORK) -- Think Like a Man Too is one of the most anticipated sequels this summer, and the cast of the ensemble comedy knows why. Gabrielle Union, who stars as Kristen, said the cast knew they struck gold while they were filming last year in Las Vegas.
"We had so much fun with the first one. And part of what people responded to was our fun as friends. So to get to come together, all of us friends -- we've all known each other over a decade -- to go to Vegas and they're going to pay us, we knew it would translate again," she explained on Tuesday's Good Morning America.
In the sequel to the highly successful 2012 film adaptation of Steve Harvey's best-selling book, Act Like a Lady, Think Like A Man, the gang heads to Vegas before Candace and Michael, played by Regina Hall and Terrence Jenkins, get married. The ladies -- Union, Hall, Taraji P. Henson, Meagan Good and La La Anthony -- and fellas -- Jenkins, Kevin Hart, Michael Ealy, Jerry Ferrara, Romany Malco and Gary Owen -- hold separate bachelor and bachelorette parties and compete to see which group can hold the best party.
Still, the competition was left on set.
"We're genuinely like a family," Union said. "All of our hashtags from filming last year in Vegas [were] #ItsMoreThanaCast. It's a family."
Think Like a Man Too hits theaters Friday.
