Do y’all remember the 1999 move “The Best Man“? I sure do! We’ll that movie is still one of my favorite classic African-American films to date.
A few months ago the movie director Malcolm Lee gathered the entire cast together for dinner in West Hollywood (see pics below). During the dinner Mr. Lee got feedback from the entire cast on the possibility of a sequel. We’ll fast forward to today and its now a reality!
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.

I can’t wait!
