The News You've Been Waiting Your Whole Life For
There's a How To Lose A Guy... sequel on the way. Get in!

You might not know it, but Hollywood has a garage where all the movie studios dump their unwanted and disused garbage – and Empire went poking in there over the weekend. What did we find? Over in the corner, past the rows of bloodied knives used to stab sundry studio execs in the back and just to the left of the big old dusty plastic bag marked ‘Vin Diesel’s Career’, lies a huge box labelled ‘Sequels that absolutely nobody wants, but what the hell, we’ll make ‘em anyway!’. Shall we open it and see what’s inside?

Well, there’s Home Alone 4 for starters, gathering detritus on the top of the pile. And The Whole Ten Yards, festering slowly alongside Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed and the horror of Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle. But what’s this on the top? Why, it’s How To Tell He’s Not The One In 10 Days, the follow-up to last year’s sleeper hit, How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days. Really?

OK, so the first one, starring Kate Hudson and Matthew ‘Have Bongos, Will Travel’ McConaughey, was alright as rom-coms go, but quite frankly, is there anybody out there who’s counting the days until a sequel arrives?

Well, Paramount are clearly hoping so, as they’ve hired Gren Wells to adapt the self-help book of the same name by …Lose A Guy authors, Michelle Alexander and Jeannie Long. And no doubt the studio has conducted lots of market research indicating that punters will line up for this flick, although given their track record with sequels lately – Star Trek: Nemesis? Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle Of Life? – there's no guarantee.

No indications yet if this will be a straight sequel, and thus require the participation of Hudson and McConaughey, or if it will focus on entirely new characters. But we know you’re waiting with bated breath for news on this flick, so we’ll keep it coming as soon as we get it.

Oh, and by the way, we’re slightly mystified that Americans need a book that tells them to tell he’s not the one in 10 days. Ladies, here’s a few tips from Empire that will enable you to tell he’s not the one in 10 minutes: if he scratches his arse and then sniffs his finger; if he calls you by a different name at the moment of ultimate pleasure; if he’s David Mellor – these are all bad signs and the man in question must be dumped forthwith.
