Black romance and brewing beef is set to return to the silver screen for a second part of 90’s comedy flick “The Best Man“. Now, insiders say many questions about the onscreen lives of the film’s characters, following the big day, will soon be answered.
The movie sequel – scheduled for release on November 15, 2013 – will reunite the entire original cast, over a script following a Christmas holiday shared between the group of college friends. That’s when they will discover just how easy it is for long-forgotten rivalries and romances to be reignited.

Here’s what film director Malcolm D. Lee told BlackFilm.com:
“The Best Man was the right film at the right time. There were few films prior or since that film that spoke to the generation of African-Americans who I knew, lived, worked, loved and laughed with.
I’ve been gratefully astounded over the years at the audience response to the film. People have often asked ‘Whatever happened to those characters? Did Jordan ever find a man? Does Murch stay with Candy? Do Lance and Mia live happily ever after?’ I have never really taken the time to answer those questions. But they keep getting asked and in light of how it is in heavy rotation on cable TV it very well may be a sign that those questions need to be answered.”
