Sounds Familiar? Why yes it does! I’m sooooooo excited. The infamous cast of Best Man is reuniting for BEST MAN 2. This is one of my favorite wedding movies of all times with Wedding Crashers being next.
Universal Pictures has made it official. They have teamed up with director Malcolm Lee for part II. They will keep all of their original cast members – Nia Long, Morris Chesnut, Taye Diggs, Sanaa Lathan, Terrence Howard and Monica Moore. YAYYYYYY!!!
Universal Released a statement saying:
“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.” – deadlinehollywood
