Matthew McConaughey wants 'How To Lose a Guy...' sequel
The chemistry between Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson is too scintillating to miss in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. So when the skilled actor talks of a sequel, it's awesome news for rom-com fans. He thinks the story of the 2003 comedy, which earned a stunning $177 million, is unfinished and that "you could easily do a sequel" of the same.
In an interview with E!'s Daily Pop, the Fool's Gold actor sounded willing about the prospects of a follow-up. "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days is teed up, you know, teed up for one that you could easily do a sequel. As far as romantic comedies go, that was a really good one ... People still love that one," he said.
Hudson weighed in on the realistic angle the film could take in an Elle interview. Thinking what the hit on-screen couple of Andie and Ben would be dealing with at the moment, Hudson said, "It's actually probably a good amount of time [that has passed] to make a movie about it. We probably would have gotten married with kids. We're probably miserable right now."
How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days was the first sign of producers banking on the bonding between Hudson and McConaughey as the film earned $177mn at the box-office against a budget of $50mn. They starred opposite each other again on the treasure hunt comedy flick Fool's Gold that gave a $111mn return to a $70mn budget. So, a sequel might work!
Coincidentally, last month, actor Hugh Grant had shared his imagination of a potential sequel to his and Julia Roberts' famous romantic movie Notting Hill. However, his vision was horrifying and funny. "I'd like to do me and Julia and the hideous divorce that's ensued with really expensive lawyers, children involved in [a] tug of love, floods of tears. Psychologically scarred forever," Grant further said.
