The Best Man franchise writer and director Malcolm D. Lee hinted late last year that the wait between The Best Man Holiday and a potential third film wouldn’t take another 14 years. As it turns out, a new film is already in the works as Universal Pictures has just announced The Best Man Wedding for release on Friday, April 15, 2016.
The Best Man Wedding will feature the return of the ensemble cast as the characters come together to celebrate the group’s most unexpected wedding to date. Lee again writes and directs the third film in the series with Sean Daniel returning to produce alongside Lee.
Released last November, The Best Man Holiday stars Monica Calhoun, Morris Chestnut, Taye Diggs, Regina Hall, Terrence Howard, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long and Harold Perrineau. Produced for just $17 million, it grossed more than $70 million at the domestic box office.
The Best Man Wedding is the first film to claim the April 15, 2016 release date.
