Universal Pictures is producing The Best Man 2. Malcolm D. Lee is set to write, direct and produce, according to Deadline. The Best Man 2 will be the the sequel to the 1999 film, a comedy in which a writer (Taye Diggs) is preparing to be the best man for his football player buddy (Morris Chestnut), but the timing is bad because said writer’s circle got advanced copies of his semi-autobiographical novel, which describes how the best man slept with the bride back in college. Lee wrote and directed the original version also.
Terrence Howard, Harold Perrineau, Nia Long and Sanaa Lathan starred alongside Diggs. The original grossed $35 million. Lee’s plan is to ask the original cast to reprise their roles.
Check out this throwback from the first movie. This is when Morris Chestnut’s character finds out about the incident, which may or may not have happened (but everyone thinks it did, despite the writer saying that the book wasn’t 100% based on truth). Put your headphones on, some of the language is nsfw.
