“The Best Man” series of films will definitely continue, and now its fans know exactly when to look forward to the next installment.
Universal Pictures has announced “The Best Man Wedding” will be released on Friday, April 15, 2016.
“Malcolm D. Lee again writes and directs the third film in his signature hit series, and Sean Daniel (“The Best Man Holiday”) returns to produce “The Best Man Wedding” alongside Lee,” Universal said in a press release. The announcement also indicates that the cast will return as well.
The third film comes much closer on the heels of its predecessor than “The Best Man Holiday” did. The original film in the series, “The Best Man,” was released in 1999 and grossed $34 million. The “Holiday” follow-up didn’t arrive until 2013 but grossed $70.5 million domestically.
All are expected to return for the new movie, except for Calhoun, whose character Mia died in the last film.
