taye diggs, sanaa lathan, nia long, the best man holiday

*Universal Pictures made it official! “The Best Man Wedding” is set to be released in 2016 — making it the third film in the franchise.

Malcolm D. Lee will return to write and direct the film while Sean Daniel will produce.

The trilogy comes at no surprise. Fans of “The Best Man” really wanted to see a sequel to the film. Hence, last year’s “The Best Man Holiday” was a big hit.

“The Best Man Holiday” grossed $70.5 million at the US box office while the original film only grossed $35.1 million.  Nevertheless, another sequel was bound to happen.

The entire cast is set to return to the third film. How could they not?  No word yet of how or if Monica Calhoun will return. SPOILER ALERT: she passes away in the last film.

Taye Diggs, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long, Regina Hall, Terrence HowardHarold Perrineau, Morris Chestnut and Melissa De Sousa will return for the third installment.
