UNIVERSAL CITY, CA, January 24, 2013 — Universal Pictures today announced that the entire all-star cast of its groundbreaking comedy The Best Man will reunite for the highly anticipated sequel that hits theaters on November 15, 2013.
After nearly 15 years apart, Taye Diggs (television’s Private Practice), Nia Long (Big Momma’s House), Morris Chestnut (Kick-Ass 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.
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.
If I have time, I usually tune in when the original film is shown on TV, so I’ll definitely head to the box office for the sequel as some of my favorite actors are in the line up. It will be interesting to see the dynamic between the cast as many have grown and added to their resume since this film. Remember Sanna Lathan’s small role as Taye Diggs’ new girlfriend?This was after small roles in films like The Wood and pre Love and Basketball. Then there’s the beautiful Nia Long whom we haven’t seen in a while. Its exciting to see more movies being produced with leading African American casts. Who are you excited to see in the film? Are you even interested? Chime in!
