Akiva Goldsman, who penned the original film with Robin Swicord and Adam Brooks, will return to write the screenplay. Bullock and Kidman are expected to produce.

In an interview with People today, Kidman took the rumors one step further, confirming her role and saying Bullock will also return as Gillian’s older sister, Sally.

“Yes I will be in it. And Sandy will be in it. And that’s that,” she told People. “There’s a lot more to tell, which is why we go, ‘OK, this is kind of interesting now to be able to do this.’ [We] found a way in.”

No plot details on the sequel have been given. The original film centered on a curse that causes any men the sisters are romantically involved with to die, thus keeping them from finding true love.
