The chemistry between Larenz Tate and Nia Long in Love Jones was obvious, and Larenz is just waiting to work with Nia again for another similar project.
“We want to do more films together, and I think it’s long overdue,” Larenz told Vibe Vixen. “We also want to find the best project to do as far as film, and it’s probably going to be in the same world as Love Jones.
It’s been more than a decade since Nina Mosley fell for smooth talker Darius Lovehall in Love Jones, but fans haven’t forgotten the love story that had women and men flocking to record stores and poetry slams looking for love.
Larenz didn’t confirm for fans that a sequel is on the way, but he said he and Nia still have a connection that would hopefully still be evident on the big screen.
“My relationship with Nia is incredible. We’re even closer now than when we were doing Love Jones. Working with her is extremely easy. We spend more time laughing at ourselves and enjoying the fact that people want to see more of us together,” said Larenz who co-stars with Nia in Showtime’s “House of Lies.”
“People are intrigued by the fact that I’ve joined the cast with Nia Long. We bring a different demographic, a different audience to the show, and the response has been positive,” said Larenz who stars as Malcolm on the series.
For Love Jones fans who can’t get enough of the fictional couple, “House of Lies” airs Sundays at 10 p.m. EST.
