90’s Movie “The Best Man” Set For Sequel…


The Best Man 2013 Sequel

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.

Taye Diggs (television’s Private Practice) Nia Long (Big Momma’s House) Morris Chestnut (Kick-Ass 2) Harold Perrineau (Zero Dark Thirty) Terrence Howard (Hustle & Flow) Sanaa Lathan (Contagion), Monica Calhoun (Love & Basketball) Melissa De Sousa (Miss Congeniality) Regina Hall (Scary Movie franchise)

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.”


  1. Ok i’m probably in the minority here but isn’t it a little late for this? I mean i liked the movie too but….

  2. …Let’s just hope it isn’t anything like ‘Why Did I Get Married Too?’ That (unnecessary) sequel’s drama was so over-the-top it made the whole movie seem cartoonish.

  3. can’t wait to see it.

    I support my Black people on the big screen. EXCEPT Django. No thanks… no thanks.

    • Django ain’t a “black” movie just has some black actors in it. In order for a movie to be “black” the writer and director have to be.

    • Django was Good! The only people not supporting are people who think its a typical slave movie…it’s not! It was funny and entertaining…u should see it!

  4. Taye Diggs really said that? that is sad. I really loved this movie, this movie could have been like Soul Food, they could have turn it into a series, cause all of the characters were interesting a had their own storyline. can’t wait to see!

    • He has major issues with black women. Big time. Whenever he is interviewed and the subject goes onto race it never takes him long to throw black women under a bus. He is a pretty spineless man. Funny how he never acknowledges that he has managed to maintain a career primarily because of BLACK Women’s support.

      • taye crossed over hekissed the gawhite duded on will AND GRACE.


  5. When this movie comes out, we must support it. We did a good job with Red Tails. For some reason, the majority of us did not see the remake of Sparkle. Hollywood is all about money. If you want to see more positive black movies, go and spend your money on the few positive black movies that are made. By the way, Soul Plane is not a positive black movie!

    • Why should we support it? Taye Diggs always blames black women for his mishaps, and now he seeks to use us to get his career back on. No thanks. They should have re-cast Taye Diggs character with a quality black actor who respects black women.

  6. Django was some RACIST a*s bullsh8 wrapped in several slaps in the face to blk ppl!! Quinton Tarratino needs his a*s whooped hella times for that f*ckery!!
    SMFH 🙁

  7. Why is it with black movies, the script is either:

    1. A Tyler Perry movie that has a title in the form of a question?
    2. A black person playing a retard.
    3. A black slave movie.
    4. A black person who has AIDs.
    5. A black person is blind.
    6. A black person as the knowledgeable sidekick.
    7. A black person in a wheelchair, knowledgeable with a horrible afro wig.
    8. Many black TV and movies now show black male actors with these very large foreheads and heads and deems them attractive. WTF?
    9. Samuel L. Jackson is some how connected to the movie or TV show.
    10. TV Shows and Movies written, produced and distributed by White-T about black life.
    11. When all else falls, make a movie about black marriages. You need to understand that every black person does not want to be married.

    Many of these movies truly makes a MOFO want the black character to die in first 20 minutes into the film after the opening credits. Many of this dribble is horrible and does not depict all black wants.

    • @CRITICXTREME-You missed a couple of ones-12.The black person who is a maid or servant who is smarter than the yt folks they work for. 13.The crafty dirty street cop or thug who gets taken out by the yt person who has no street knowledge but somehow seems to develop the ability to concoct a plan that gets the cop or thug killed. 14.The crazy mean ass black woman or man who learns how to be loving and kind with the help of a cute blonde yt child. 15.The black man or woman who is saved by a kind yt woman or man who takes them into their home and teaches them how to be a human being. There may be others but those are the ones i could think of.

      • 16. The urban dance movie with black and brown kids that can dance their ass off, but some white ballet chick moves into the neighborhood and find the street dance click, hooks up with them and leads them to have a neighborhood fundraiser to save the after-school center OR the ballet chick falls in love with the cute black guy that can really dance and turns him from a thug to a loving man. 17. The poor neglected black children that turn their life around after they are taken in by a concerned and loving white family. And there’s more…..

  8. Am I the one who doesn’t care about a Best Man remake? What thwe big deal about it? I barely remember the film. I was forgetting it while I was watching it

  9. Heard she’s a little ‘hood but I would rather see a movie with her in it than the following –

    Beyonce – just overexposed
    Post-2008 Vivica – good actress but the plastic surgery is sometimes distracting
    Tasha Smith – good actress but seems to be forever stuck in a stereotype role. Too bad that Donna Summer biopic was shut down because that would have been her opportunity to show folks her skills outside of a Tylisha Perry Production.

    • Yeah on that Tasha Smith woman. I wish she’d stop playing that part in every movie she’s in. I know she has more to give…

  10. Long is TOO hood. I know a director who worked with her on a project and still says it was the most miserable experience he’s had with any actress ever. Total bitch. That’s what hurt her career. Hollywood is small place and word gets around. And it’s not like she’s box office. No one goes to see a film because she’s in it. If they had maybe her career would be a lot bigger


    And what’s wrong with that? I was raised on blaxplotation films not some movies with a man (barely) in a dress

  12. Yeah!! This is great news!
    Now, can we also get sequels/follow-ups to “Love Jones”, “The Inkwell”, “Coming to America” and “Boomerang”??

  13. I’d love to see a sequel to Inkwell and Crooklyn. What happened to the family after the mom died? How did Troy manage? What happened to her cousin down south. Did their uncle leave Bird? She seemed to get on his damned nerves. LOL Did she go back to visit over the years? Did she go live with her other aunt and uncle that picked her up from her trip? (I heard the boy that played the oldest son [Knicks fan] recently died – RIP son). My… so many unanswered question. LOL

    • Yeah, I know it was loosely based on Spike’s life, but we can make up a fictitious ending for entertainment purposes. It would be good, I think.
