'Sordid Lives' sequel 'A Very Sordid Wedding' in works

It's official. There's a script for a "Sordid Lives" sequel.

Actors Newell and Rosemary Alexander, who appeared in the 2001 film (as Wardell and Dr. Eve, respectively) and other Del Shores productions, say much of the original cast will return for "A Very Sordid Wedding."

As the title hints, at least one character intends to tie the knot. Palm Springs fans who helped boost "Sordid Lives" to cult status may wonder which beloved character will walk down the aisle, but the Alexanders are mum on that point.

"I can't say whose wedding," Rosemary Alexander says.

When asked if Ty, the son who came out as gay in the first film, is the lucky groom, she smiles sheepishly and replies, "That's one idea, but I can't say whose wedding."

Shores, who plans to shoot and release the film in 2015, confirms that the betrothed's identity is a "big secret."

The original movie tells the story of a Texas family coming together in the aftermath of the matriarch's death, and starred Olivia Newton-John, Beau Bridges, Beth Grant, Delta Burke, and Leslie Jordan.

The film spawned the television adaptation in 2008 only lasting one season. It was Rue McClanahan's final acting role.
