Tyrese Says a ‘Baby Boy’ Sequel Is on the Way
It looks like the adventures of Jody will continue. In a recent Instagram post, Tyrese, who played the role in Baby Boy— which is a film chronicling one 20-year-old father of two's personal growth and his battle against his girlfriend's ex-boyfriend—alluded to a sequel to the film being in the works.
For his post, Tyrese, who stars in The Fate of the Furious, uploaded a clip from Baby Boy, along with what sounds like himself laughing in the background. He made his sequel revelation in the caption for the video, "Sequel to Baby Boy coming soon..... #BabyBoyComingOfAge shout to @johnsingleton." John Singleton directed Boyz n the Hood and Baby Boy.
As you can see, his hashtag #BabyBoyComingOfAge could even be hinting at a sequel for the film. What remains completely unclear is what, exactly, the film would be about. The original Baby Boy focused on the struggles of a somewhat aimless 20-something, but it's been just about 16 years since the film was released, so it's kind of hard to see them going for the whole "coming of age" angle again.
Then again, the supposed sequel could focus on his son and daughter's coming of age, since the two kids would probably be close to adulthood whenever this film would be released. Who knows? In any case, you can peep Tyrese's Baby Boy sequel tease on IG below.
