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.
So excited for this and nervous at the same time. None of the actors in the original were household names then, but many of them have gone on to huge careers since. Let’s cross our fingers that it’s all love and NO egos on set? How do you feel about the sequel?
