We were first introduced to the cast of The Best Man back in 1999, with an all star cast and an intense story line. The gang all returned for a sequel, The Best Man Holiday, which is already a smashing success with $30.1 million earned at the box office its opening weekend. Those who have seen the movie are wondering if there’s a third movie in the works. The answer is: very likely.

According to Shadow & Act, director and writer Malcolm D. Lee is reportedly in talks with Universal about a third installment to the romantic comedy. Although there’s no word yet on whether the cast has been secured, the success of this film could definitely bring back Morris Chestnut, Taye Diggs, Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long, Terrence Howard, Harold Perrineau, Regina Hall, and Melissa De Sousa. Holiday had a $17 million budget, which was earned back and some. The actors may not have options on a threequel, though, so they could be looking at a bigger check for another movie.

The movie has garnered rave reviews from the audience and media alike, including some outrage on social media toward a mainstream news source undermining the success of Holiday based on it being targeted to African American women. USA Today compared the movie to The Butler, 12 Years a Slave and Fruitvale Station, initially pegging Holiday to be “race themed“. This has prompted many moviegoers to continue to support the movie, to show that its success is not a fluke.

Movies that are highly successful at the box office are more likely to have another installment, but it sounds like Lee is already writing the next story. We are excited to see what’s next for Lee and the cast.

BMWK, do you want to see a third installment of The Best Man?

    Our couples group saw it together. 8 couple’s strong and everyone enjoyed themselves. Luck for us I brought the tickets early in the week and there was still a line an hour early for sitting. We are definitely excited for a three installment. Great job…..

      Let’s get someone who has yet to grace the Big Screen.I really would like to Tahiry Jose from Love and Hip Hop New York play in the 3rd one.I think she will mesh and gel very well with all the other stars.

      The Best Man 3 should cast Zoe Saldana or Halle Berry or I can see Kelly Rowland being a good match for Morris Chestnut.

    I would love to see a part three. We have to continue to produce positive films about African American men and women. Funny how we cant seem to win. If its a historical film critics say “oh no not another slave film” if its a modern day film critics say “its a race theme”. Cant win for losing. Keep making movies people and that all that matters.

    Loved this movie for the essence of a God centered marriage, strong black families, real friends, forgiveness, male friendships, strong black men who were emotionally available, rising above situations & more!!! BM #3 is a must!!!! Love, Love, Loved It!!!!

    I loved this movie! Can’t believe how beautiful and fulfilling the storyline was! Would love to see the storyline for a part three. If suggestions are being taken I would love to see Jill Scott Tahija P. Henson, worked into the cast.
