Officially confirming what we already know, Universal Pictures issued a press release today annoucing that The Best Man 2 is definitely happening, with a November 15, 2013 release date planned; so it should e going into production shortly, if it hasn't already.
And while there's still no word on what exactly the plot for this sequel will be, in the Universal press release, it's stated that the entire starring cast of the first film is returning for the sequel, and hints at what the story will be.
After nearly 15 years apart, Taye Diggs , Nia Long , Morris Chestnut , Harold Perrineau , Terrence Howard , Sanaa Lathan , Monica Calhoun , Melissa De Sousa and Regina Hall reprise their career-launching roles in the next chapter to the film that ushered in a new era of comedy. When the college friends finally reunite over the Christmas holidays, they will discover just how easy it is for long-forgotten rivalries and romances to be ignited.
Malcolm D. Lee returns to write and direct this sequel to his directorial debut. Sean Daniel (The Mummy franchise) will produce alongside Lee for The Sean Daniel Company.
I can't say that I'm all-that interested in The Best Man 2 (I'll always prefer fresh stories, instead of recycling, revisiting or extending old ones). However, I'm definitely curious to find out what story (or stories) Lee will tell the second time around.
But it's officially dated for a November 15, 2013 release, so it's only a matter of time before further news on any additional or new casting and plot are revealed.
still haven't seen the first one.
