The director of the 1999 gay romantic comedy "Trick" announced this past Thursday he is making a sequel to that film. 

Jim Fall posted on Facebook, "So this is in the works for 2019....... just in time for the 20th (!!!) anniversary of TRICK next year. (Thank you Jayson Rivest for this amazing teaser image)."

The original film became a cult hit and defined a generation that lived before Grindr, social media and the dominance of smartphones. 

Gabriel (Christian Campbell) is a young composer who becomes enamored with a go-go dancer named Mark (John Paul Pitoc). Both of them make their way through Manhattan to find a place to be alone but they can't seem to catch a break because of the many characters that hijack their time and test their patience. Tori Spelling makes a guest appearance as does drag icon CoCo Peru. 

There are no details on the cast, plot or release date as of yet, but people are very excited about the news. 

Last year Del Shores reunited most of his cast for another iconic LGBT film "Sordid Lives." That film titled "A Very Sordid Wedding" sold out at its Southern California premiere at the San Diego LGBT Film Festival.
