Official: ‘The Best Man 2′ Movie in the Works

Best-Man-Cast

Good news for fans of the movie The Best Man–there’s a sequel to the movie in the works!

So what’s your favorite scene from the movie?  For me, it’s the last scene where everybody’s dancing.  Love the way it ended, thought it was nicely done.

Well it’s been years since the movie came out–1999–12 years ago, but the sequel is official–Universal Pictures has signed on to be a part of the project with original director  Malcolm Lee on board to direct. Here’s the excerpt from Deadline.

Universal has set Malcolm D. Lee to write, direct and produce Best Man 2, a sequel to the 1999 film. Lee wrote and directed the original, a comedy in which a writer (Taye Diggs) is preparing to be the best man for his football player buddy (Morris Chestnut), but the timing is bad because the writer’s autobiographical novel is about to pop and it describes how the best man bedded the bride. Terrence Howard, Harold Perrineau, Nia Long and Sanaa Lathan also starred. The original grossed $35 million. Lee’s plan is to ask the original cast to reprise; in fact, I’m told the whole idea came out of a reunion dinner he held with most of the cast members, and they sparked to the idea of a re-team and so did the studio.

It’s gonna be interesting to see the return of (hopefully) the full cast find out what the storyline will be…
