As Deadline was the first to reveal last fall, Richard Gere is starring in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel 2, which Fox Searchlight has announced is beginning production in India with John Madden at the helm. Gere, David Strathairn and Tamsin Greig join returning stars Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Dev Patel and the rest of the cast. This is the first ever sequel made by Fox Searchlight, and the rare adult-themed prestige film to get an encore. The first film was a surprise global hit which grossed $135 million worldwide.
