'My Best Friend's Wedding' star Dermot Mulroney says 'I'm ready for a sequel' of the film
Roberts and Mulroney are pairing up for an upcoming Amazon series 'Homecoming' and ever since fans have been wondering whether the stars will team up for their 90's film's sequel
Gather around, all the fans of 'My Best Friend's Wedding'. Our favorite 90's rom-com with a not-so-happy ending just might return for a second inning.
With a stellar cast of Julia Roberts, Dermot Mulroney, Cameron Diaz, and Rupert Everett, 'My Best Friend's Wedding' released in 1997 and was one of the top 10 highest-grossing films of the year. Roberts played the character of Julianne Potter who is in love with her best friend Michael O'Neal played by Mulroney. However, Mulroney is engaged to Kimberly Wallace, played by the very talented Diaz and in the middle of all that is Everett who played the character of George Downes, Julianne's gay friend.

In a recent interaction with The Talk, Mulroney was asked by host Sharon Osbourne, "Seeing you and Julia [Roberts] back together again, everyone is hoping that this is going to lead to a sequel to..." Mulroney finishes her sentence, "I know, I know, 'My Best Friend's Wedding'. The question is much chronicled, you'll notice that the answers are hard to come by. I'm certainly not in the decision-making process, I've been clear from the beginning, I've been clear from 1997, that I'm ready for a sequel, I'm on record."

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Roberts was asked about one movie she would most like to visit and she gave the shoutout to 'Pretty Woman' but made a special mention of 'My Best Friend's Wedding' too.
Roberts said, "I guess I think maybe it’s just because we’re talking about Dermot [Mulroney]. But Rupert [Everett] was so funny in 'My Best Friend’s Wedding'. I guess Kimmy (Cameron Diaz) and Michael (Mulroney) are married and they probably have kids. And then there’s me and Rupert."
Looks like two out of the four co-stars are ready to make the sequel of the 90's film, Everett appears in films and television regularly, so he might also agree to do the film. However, Diaz might be a little harder to convince as she had jokingly said that she has essentially "retired" from acting, as reported by Huffington Post.
