‘The Best Man’ Sequel Set for 2013 Release
It’s official! The follow-up to the hit 1999 wedding drama The Best Man is officially coming to theaters next year.
Universal gave the project the greenlight last year. Now, the studio has set a date for the release of the new film : November 15, 2013. No word yet on whether the entire original cast will return, but we’re told it’s pretty likely. Malcolm D. Lee, the original film’s writer and director, will get behind the lens once again.
The original film saw Taye Diggs as a writer preparing to be the best man for his football player best friend’s (Morris Chestnut) wedding, but the release of his autobiographical tell-all novel causes a drift in their friendship.
The film also starred Sanaa Lathan, Terrence Howard, Harold Perrineau, Nia Long, Monica Calhoun and Melissa De Sousza.
