Universal will officially be releasing a sequel to the 1999 romantic comedy, The Best Man, later this year.
The entire cast from the original film will be reuniting and reprising their roles for the sequel, Universal announced Thursday.
Malcolm D. Lee, who wrote and directed the original film, will also be returning. The Best Man was Lee’s directorial debut, and he has since directed an episode of Everybody Hates Chris, the Eddie Griffin comedy Undercover Brother, and the upcoming Scary Movie 5.
The Best Man centers on author Harper (Taye Diggs), whose first book is about to be published around the same time he is asked to be the best man in the wedding of his friends Lance (Morris Chestnut) and Mia (Monica Calhoun). Unbeknownst to those around him, Harper’s book is largely inspired by his real life, and he worries that his family and friends will see themselves in his characters. Even worse for Harper is the fact that he and Mia had a fling, which he writes about in his book. Lance has no idea, and Harper has to find a why to keep him from finding out. A bridesmaid named Jordan (Nia Long) gets an advance copy of the novel and Harper has to find a way to keep her from revealing his secret.
The film also stars Harold Perrineau (Wedding Band), Terrence Howard (Hustle & Flow), and Sanaa Lathan (Love & Basketball).
The sequel sees the friends reuniting over the holidays, and old rivalries and romances will be reignited.
The Best Man 2 will hit theaters November 15, 2013.
