She is currently a writer, contributing pieces to sites like Hello Giggles and Thought Catalog. Jakub addressed the sequel news on her Facebook page, saying, "Lots of people are asking if I would do it — and my answer is a really solid 'I don't know.'

So I'm taking it all with a Hollywood-sized grain of salt."
