What Can You Expect From “The Best Man 3”? Let Morris And Malcolm Lee Tell You
With the success of The Best Man sequel The Best Man Holiday, it’s no surprise that the studios would want to go to the well one more time. And Malcolm Lee was ready for them. It would seem that he started writing the third installment of The Best Man franchise before the second one was even in theaters. Fans of the films (read the MadameNoire staff) are anxious to know what’s in store for round three. Luckily, director Malcolm Lee and Morris Chestnut spoke with Vibe at the American Black Film Festival to spill some tea. See what they had to say.
**Note** For those of you who have yet to see the second movie, do better. But also click away. There will be spoiler alerts about the second film in the quotes below.
Morris Chestnut: It will be…it will probably be the funniest of them all. It’s going to have a lot of twists and turns, I just can’t tell you the storyline.
Malcolm Lee: It’s going to be some romance. There’ll be some sex, there’s going to be a wedding and it’s going to be a distant location.
Morris thought that the studio had a script but Lee confirmed that the script is not quite ready for the studios yet.
MC: I’m excited because the last movie I was kind of upset throughout the whole movie and very emotional, so Malcolm promised me that this movie is going to be completely different for me. So I’m looking forward to that.
ML: You don’t just get over the death of your life mate, your soul partner. So he is going to be sad. We’ll feel sad for him but in a very different way, a very different way this time around. This is going to be one of Morris Chestnut’s funniest roles.
Yaasss! I’m here for this. Though the “distant location” part made me a little skeptical at first, the fact that we’ll be “sad for him” in a different way” makes it sound like the story is going to be complex and not easily predictable. Here.For.It.
I hope the studios aren’t on that bo-yang and they don’t hesitate in getting this made. I’ve essentially already bought my ticket.
Are you as excited as I am?
