Another movie from Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon is on the way


Last year, the only rom-com I was interested in was The Big Sick, and it looks like Kumail Nanjiani and his writing partner and wife Emily V. Gordon are looking to follow it up with another feature film.

The Big Sick was critically acclaimed, making Nanjiani a prime target for interviews at yesterday’s Emmy awards. In an interview with PeopleTV, Nanjiani said that he and Gordon were already writing another film.

We’re writing another thing together, and hopefully we’ll get to make it,” Nanjiani said.

Well, good! The Big Sick was a fantastically empathetic movie that firmly capitalized on the human elements present in romantic comedies. Hopefully, another film from Nanjiani and Gordon will aim to do the same.
