The Kissing Booth #2 announcement!
Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! It's official!," Courtney told his Twitter followers. "Yup! We are getting a sequel!," said his co-star Joey King.
The movie went big on Netflix with the streamer's content chief, Ted Sarandos, saying that at one point it was "one of the most-watched movies in the country, and maybe in the world."
Plot details for THE KISSING BOOTH 2 are thin on the ground.
The first movie was adapted from a Beth Reekles novel, which was originally self-published on the Wattpad digital platform. It was directed by Vince Marcello, who will also helm the new movie, from a screenplay written by him and Jay Arnold.
Pre-production is underway, and shooting is expected to begin in 2019 later. There are no confirmed dates, but the film is likely to release on Netflix in 2020.
