One Wednesday (Sept. 8), the Ohio native hopped on Twitter for an impromptu chat with fans and the exchange revealed a lot about what he has on the horizon. When asked about a sequel to 2010’s comedy, Lottery Ticket, the 34-year-old revealed that he’s actually working on a Like Mike sequel. Not to be confused with Like Mike 2, which he feels “shoulda never been made.” It seems the project may be in the same vein as Space Jam: New Legacy—not a technical sequel, but a fresh take for the current generation. However, Bow did clarify that “it’s all ideas for now, but […] so far so good.”

One fan suggested that his 10-year-old daughter, Shai Moss, should star in the new Like Mike, to which Bow admitted, “Shhhhh….. another gem ima drop. It wont be called LIKE MIKE. But LIKE someone. We are taking our time with this one. I believe this mite be bigger than original. Cant wait.”

Shai is already very active on social media with hilarious skits and has already begun a career in acting with appearances on Nickelodeon’s Side Hustle and the forthcoming series, We Got This.

As far as other reboots/sequels are concerned, to Bow’s knowledge, there is no Johnson Family Vacation 2 in the works and you can also count out Roll Bounce 2. When speaking on his 2005 cult classic, Bow explained, “Too timeless. It was a period time movie. Be hard to do an updated version.”

On the music front, the rapper revealed that his next album is coming “next year for sure” and will also be his last.

However, Bow is set to headline the Millennium Tour alongside Omarion. The 27-city tour will kick off on Oct. 1 in Los Angeles and will wrap up on Nov. 26 in Las Vegas.
