America Ferrera (Ugly Betty) has reluctantly agreed to reprise her role as Carmen in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2.
The films studio, Alcon Entertainment, excercised its sequel option on Ferrera, as well as co-stars Amber Tamblyn, Alexis Bledel and Blake Lively. It’s likely a move to capitalize on Ferrera’s newfound celebrity status due to her role on ABC freshman drama/comedy Ugly Betty.
That fact seems even more evident when Ferrera was not even the top actress in the original film. Top billing for the original went to Tamblyn and Bledel.
Filming will begin in June and the movie will be directed by Sanaa Hamri.
