"Someday, when I'm awfully low..."
If those lyrics don't immediately conjure happy memories of Julia Roberts, this isn't the story for you. For the rest of us, let's take a moment to light a candle for the cinematic genius that was My Best Friend's Wedding. No movie has ever given us more joy, or made us want to eat at a lobster shack more than the tale of two BFFs trying to make it work.
And now the flick is coming to the small screen! E! News has learned that ABC is developing a sequel of sorts, that would follow Jules (Roberts' character) life back in NYC post-wedding. Michael married Kimmy, and now Jules has to lean on Svengali and general life genius George (originally played by Rupert Everett) to get by.
