Production is underway on Hulu’s suprise comedy of last Vacation Friends titled Honeymoon Friends. Deadline is reporting that Jake Choi (Single Parents) has joined the cast.
The original film starred John Cena, Lil Rel Howery, Yvonne Orji, and Meridith Hagner, who are all set to return. It followed an uptight couple who makes friends with a rowdy couple while on vacation in Mexico, but their friendship takes an awkward turn when they get back home.
Details as to the sequel’s plot are being kept under wraps. Choi will play the dour and confident hotel group exec Yon, who talks a big game and cuts Marcus (Howery) down the moment they meet – all in effort to hide his own insecurity. Though as they spend more time together, Yon comes to admire and respect Marcus, and the two form an unlikely friendship.
Craig Tarver is returning to direct from a script with returning writer Tom Mullen. Jonathan Goldstein, Francis Daley, Todd Garner and Timothy M. Bourne return to produce.
