During a recent interview with "Clay Cane", Nia Long spoke openly about a possible sequel to the movie "Love Jones":
I have to ask you about “Love Jones.” Are you surprised how people are obsessed with that movie even to this day?
Making the movie, it was just so close to what I know as being Black - Black love. It’s the closest that you were going to ever get in my opinion - that film is timeless. For years, they’ve been saying, “Let’s do a sequel.” I heard that it’s possible there might be a sequel in the works that’s going straight to video with two other actors because I would never do that and Larenz [Tate] wouldn’t either. I think that’s going to be the biggest mistake they could ever make. It’s a cult classic and people love that movie. If you try to serve that up with different actors and a sequel straight to video, you’re going to piss a lot of people off.
I need Nina Mosley! [Laughs]
Right! It’s not even about my own ego, it’s just I do understand what it means to us. I do understand what people expect. Larenz and I made a pact, I haven’t talked to him in years, we would never do it unless it was done properly. There is no reason to touch something that was done so beautifully. Not even us as actors but just the story, the visuals, the dialogue and the music. It was rich with textures.
Imagine that, a sequel to Love Jones without the original "Nina and Darius". I am sure Nia Long and Larenz Tate and the producers can work something out.
