Malcolm D. Lee’s The Best Man sequel finally has a title.
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.
Anticipation has been high after the project was announced, and finally there is a title to premiere: The Best Man Holiday
Honestly, after all these months of speculation and the time the creative team behind the project spent mulling, and that was the best they could come up with? Let’s pray that the first trailer proves the film to be better than its name when it opens November 15.
