The Johnson family is set to return to theaters to follow up where they left off in 2004. It has now been revealed that Cedric The Entertainer will return back to the big screen for his role as Nate Johnson for the sequel to ‘Johnson Family Vacation’. According to reports, Cedric has teamed up with producer & preacher Devon Franklin to continue the story.
A sequel to the 2004 comedy Johnson Family Vacation is in the works at Fox Searchlight. Johnson Family Celebration will pick up nearly two decades after the events of the original film, and will see the return of Cedric the Entertainer as Nate Johnson, the well-meaning patriarch of the Johnson family that embarked on an ill-fated cross-country road trip. (Family Vacation grossed $31 million in theaters in 2004.) Along with DeVon Franklin and his Franklin Entertainment banner, Cedric will produce with Eric Rhone via his A Bird and A Bear Entertainment. Michael Elliot — the writer behind Like Mike and Just Wright — will pen the sequel.
