It may have taken over 10 years for Best Man Holiday to come out has the sequel to The Best Man, back in 1999, but from the 2nd to the 3rd movie is a different story. The Best Man Wedding is scheduled to premiere in 2016!
“The Best Man” was the initial film that started the series in 1999. The all black cast followed a group of friends as they prepared for a friend’s wedding, while a friend’s famous book contains a secret that threatens the friendship of the groom and the best man.
“The Best Man Holiday” was released in 2013 with the original cast returning [Taye Diggs, Terrence Howard, Harold Perrineau, Morris Chestnut, Monica Calhoun, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long, Melissa De Sousa and Regina Hall] and doubled in sales from the first, making more than $71 million in the box office worldwide! This plot follows up with the group visiting old grudges, buried resentment, and secret pasts that the group has to overcome during the holiday season.
For the third installment will be produced by Sean Daniel. From what we do know, the plot is going to take place after Terrence Howard’s announcement that he is getting married. Other than that, the plot is unknown so far. We also know that the original cast is going to return once more for the third Best Man.
Filmmaker Malcolm D. Lee is returning to write and direct a third installment of the popular film franchise The Best Man. I guess the only concern is whether or not the third will be better or at least as good as the second. With that 14 year gap in between the first and second film, it’s understandable why Best Man Holiday doubled the first. Can such a gripping plot with a ten year preparation be condensed into two years? Tell us what you think with comments below.
