A couple months ago we found out that a sequel to “The Best Man” was finally happening, and though details were sketchy at the time, we now know a little bit more about the cast and the plot, and for starters, the entire cast is coming back!
Shadow and Act released details of a Universal Press Release that tells us a bit about what’s to come when the follow-up flick hits theaters this November:
After nearly 15 years apart, Taye Diggs (television’s Private Practice), Nia Long (Big Momma’s House), Morris Chestnut (Kick-A$$ 2), Harold Perrineau (Zero Dark Thirty), Terrence Howard (Hustle & Flow), Sanaa Lathan (Contagion), Monica Calhoun (Love & Basketball), Melissa De Sousa (Miss Congeniality) and Regina Hall (Scary Movie franchise) 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.
Uh oh, sounds like Jordan and Harper might try to sneak in one last rendezvous before he marries Robin, because I know Murch can’t be crazy enough to get back with Shelby, can he? Either way I’m super excited about seeing this sequel — as I just bought the original on DVD last weekend — I just hope they don’t turn it into a Holiday drama because of the time of year. But with Malcolm D. Lee around to write and direct again, we should hopefully be treated to a sequel as good as the first.
Can’t wait til November 15, 2013 when it debuts!
