Larenz Tate Talks ‘Love Jones’ Sequel

Menace II Society‘s Larenz Tate revealed that he’s been discussing a possible sequel to the romantic drama Love Jones, starring him and Nia Long.

Love Jones is a great thing to do, if we can catch lightening in a bottle… it happened with The Best Man,” Tate told TheGrio.

The movie, released in 1997, is set in the arts scene of Chicago and follows the love story of Darius Lovehall and Nina Mosley.

“I think if we found the right take on the story and the script was right, it would be nice to do. It’s been something that Nia and I have been approached about and we’ve been talking about trying to do,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.”

Tate, 38, currently stars as Dr. Alex Burke in USA Network’s new medical drama, Rush which premiered on July 17.
