On its way to earning an estimated $34 million, Martin Lawrence’s 1996 comedy thriller A Thin Line Between Love And Hate brought in over $9 million during its opening weekend. Almost two decades after showcasing Lawrence, along with Lynn Whitfield, Regina King, and Bobby Brown, the film is due for a sequel.
On February 19, Lawrence uploaded a picture of the screenplay to A Thin Line Between Love And Hate 2 to his Instagram profile. He captioned the picture writing, “Just finished writing A Thin Line Between Love and Hate 2. Excited as a MF! #crazyderanged #comingatyou.”
The planned sequel caps off a period of increased activity for the actor and comedian, who last year told Conan O’Brien a script for Bad Boys 3 was in the works. After co-starring in the FX series Partners with Kelsey Grammer, Lawrence has returned to standup comedy. His most recent appearance was at L.A.’s famed venue, The Comedy Store.
