Baby Boy 2: Coming Of Age – Sequel Is On The Way

Tyrese Gibson used Instagram to announce Baby Boy 2.  The sequel to the 2001 movie will be called Baby Boy: Coming Of Age.  Scroll to the Instagram post below to see Tyrese’s announcement.  The singer sent a shout out to John Singleton, the writer, director and producer of the original film.  Tyrese and Taraji P. Henson still have a great relationship so she’ll most likely be in the sequel.

Tyrese’s role was meant for Tupac Shakur

In the original Baby Boy film, Tyrese’s character, Jody, is an avid Tupac Shakur fan.  The role was originally meant for Tupac but after he died production for the movie was suspended.  Taraji plays Yvette, Jody’s baby mother.  The film features classic scenes between the two actors.  During one of their arguments, Yvette demands to Jody to let her smell his private parts to confirm he’s not cheating.

Will Taraji P. Henson be in Baby Boy 2?

While Taraji and Tyrese are still close friends, Henson may not want to be in the movie.  It has been difficult for Taraji to land major roles since Baby Boy.  It has been hard for her to show Hollywood that she can play any role.  Many believe she’s only able to play hood characters.  Her role as Cookie Lyon hasn’t helped her prove Hollywood wrong.

Hidden Figures represented Henson’s coming of age.  She did a magnificent job as mathematician, Katherine Johnson, finally proving Hollywood wrong.
