Its official Best Man will be continuing with a sequal..Best Man 2 is in the works! I usually am not a fan of sequels of movies that I see classic (Coming to America, 16 candles, Breakfast club, The Wood, etc just to name a few) but I am excited for this one!
I wonder what the focus of the sequel will be about..Did Harper admit he was in denial about his feelings for Jordan after proposing to Robin? Does Robin find out Harper and Jordan have been keeping in contact and have a secret affair? Does Mia have groupie problems now? Do quentin and shelby fall in love?
Cant wait to see the story lines unfold!
Universal Pictures has officially signed on to be the studio home of Best Man 2! Deadline Hollywood reports the original director, Malcolm Lee, will return to the helm. And he’s working on locking down the original YBF cast featuring Taye Diggs, Sanaa Lathan, Monica Moore, Nia Long, Terrence Howard, Morris Chestnut, and plenty more:
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.
