A Happiness sequel is underway

Writer/Director Todd Solondz (Palindromes) is giving his 1998 film Happiness a sequel. The first movie focused on three sisters and their respective families in New Jersey, dealing with sex problems and stuff. The as yet untitled movie, which stars Emma Thompson (Brideshead Revisited), Paul Reubens (aka Pee-Wee Herman) and Demi Moore (Mr. Brooks), will start shooting in Puerto Rico this October. It should be a sequel “in spirit only”, with its characters struggling to find their place in the world (aka new people with sex problems) and probably won’t feature any link to the original.
