On "Watch What Happens Live," actress Rita Wilson just couldn't hold in her excitement about the upcoming sequel to "My Big Fat Greek Wedding."

"Yes! We're making a sequel, and we're gonna start filming in January."

"We have all the original cast coming back, it's very exciting, we're really happy."

This sequel's been a long time coming, with the original hitting theaters in 2002. But Wilson has now confirmed that they'll begin shooting early next year. Opa!

Writer and star Nia Vardalos announced she was working on the sequel on Twitter back in May. "Now that I'm experiencing motherhood I feel ready to write this next chapter."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the flick will take a similar route to the first, except it'll be, well, bigger and fatter.

"The plot of the new script involves the reveal of a family secret and a new wedding ... that brings the Greek clan together again."

So we know that Nia Vardalos has written the script and will be starring in the film alongside original co-star John Corbett. But at this point, we still don't know who'll be directing the sequel.
