IT'S OFFICIAL! "Best Man 2" Is On The Way....

OMG our wishes have come true!  My absolute favorite wedding movie of all time, Best Man, is getting a sequel.  After speculations began when the cast had their 12 year reunion several months ago, director Malcolm Lee decided to make it a reality.  Deets inside...

Universal Pictures has officially signed on to be the studio home of Best Man 2Deadline Hollywood reports the original director, Malcolm Lee, will return to the helm.  And he's working on locking down the original YBF cast featuring Taye Diggs, Sanaa Lathan, Monica Moore, Nia Long, Terrence Howard, Morris Chestnut, and plenty more:

Universal has set Malcolm D. Lee to write, direct and produce Best Man 2, a sequel to the 1999 film. Lee wrote and directed the original, 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 the writer’s autobiographical novel is about to pop and it describes how the best man bedded the bride. Terrence Howard, Harold Perrineau, Nia Long and Sanaa Lathan also starred. The original grossed $35 million. Lee’s plan is to ask the original cast to reprise; in fact, I’m told the whole idea came out of a reunion dinner he held with most of the cast members, and they sparked to the idea of a re-team and so did the studio.

I'm usually no fan of sequels...especially to movies I deem classic.  But this right here already gets a thumbs up from me.  Woot!

Now, what should be the focus of the sequel?  Did Lance & Mia have a baby and now they have groupie issues?  Will Mia be on a "Football Wives" type show and it breaks up their marriage?  Did Harper let Jordan come between him and Robin and we'll see a whole situation unfold on the big screen?  Your thoughts?

I think lance will be at the

I think lance will be at the end of his football career. I think him and Mia will be nearing divorce. They have 2 kids 12 and 14. Harper will try and save their marraige. Forgetting to let them in on the fact that he is bored and unhappy in his own marriage. They wont have kids. Now Jordin is getting married to a dream guy who has a great personailty...but no real close friends so he ask harper to be his best man. But now harper is put in the weird position cause he has wondered as of late if he made a mistake leaving Jordin behind. The funny thing is the happy so in love couple is Terrance howard and Shelby. They travel, they have fun. She brings out all the best in him and he does the same for her. But her ex is eyeing her cause his younger wife is making him feel old. Harpers latest book has bad timing. He is talking about the characters from the first book ...but this time blasting each of them for some fakeness he has encountered over the years..and yes revealing some deep rooted feelings he has had for a long time...JORDIN.

Jordan should be getting

Jordan should be getting married now, with Harper as the best man as his best man. Her fiance, new character, is not from here and forms a bond with Harper - - one of Jordan's best friends. It's the best man 2... Harper should be on his 3rd book, and Lance has a family with young kids. Build on that!!!

I sure am happy that the

I sure am happy that the sequel's finally going to be a reality.With every single person of the main cast still in there and still playing their roles well so their audience wl luv em s'more or get a rude shock(to add to the twists and turns in the ensuing plots.To make the audience enjoy and applaud ths sequel to an all time classic,gv us a flashback twist,a continuation of the drama and a new plot to end in getting ur half ur male audience applauding and the other half lef thinking then the half of your female audience thinking deep too as which way to go as one of the female casts is left at the crossroads of a major decision and the other half spellbound..give us the best sequel ever and thank you all for the 1st classic.

This sure is a breath of fresh air and I can't wait for the sequel.There r two ways to this,a continuation wch wont b dramatic enuf in the end and will kill the classic effect of the 1st or a plot that will highlight a few special moments frm the original,a flashback or two that wl hav most of the varied audience enjoying an 'Oh' moment then a twist in a plot or two of the present continuation.Then finally,an ending which will get male viewership thinking deep and the female viewers mopping their eyes n wanting to watch both all over and over..my fingers are crossed all the way in Ghana,West Africa.

Yeah I agree Robin and Harper

Yeah I agree Robin and Harper should get married and yes Harpers feelings for Jordan should come into play. Of course Lance has to be the Best Man in the sequel. He and Mia should have teenage kids who discover the book and figure out the secret from the first movie

There are so many different ways that the story line could go. I do hope that everyone returns it wouldn't be the same without the entire cast including Melissa Desousa. But if nothing else I'm looking forward to the soundtrack which was one of the best ever.
