Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2

The movie poster for The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 (or as I like to call it, The Sequel the Studio Forced Its Stars to Do) is out and it appears that they’ve been crammed in a sardine can for the picture.

Allegedly, Amber Tamblyn, America Ferrera, Blake Lively and Alexis Bledel signed on to the original movie and there was a clause that committed them to do a sequel. No one expected the original movie to become a cult hit and make as much money as it did. Then America Ferrera hit the big time with Ugly Betty and won a bunch of awards and the studios decided to cash in. Of course it didn’t hurt that Blake Lively became a pop culture sensation on Gossip Girl. Supposedly several of the stars didn’t want to do the sequel but their original contract forced them to.

    Oh poor little dears! To be FORCED to do a movie with a built in fan base from hit books, that they clearly signed on to do. People get on my nerves biting the hand that fed them. I bet they were jumping up and down to book that movie the first time, so they should have been gracious enough to do the sequel as they committed to do without trying to get out of it.
