Today in “I’m sorry, what?” sequel news, Deadline Greendale reports that Universal Pictures has decided to go ahead with a sequel to 1999’s The Best Man. As if that news was not already somewhat bizarre enough (or at least flat-out unexpected), the Deadliners seem to think this is in direct response to the studio’s desire for a Bridesmaids sequel, a quest that has apparently left the Universal executives so desperate for a wedding-based property that they’ve thrown dry rice at their entire library of nuptial-themed flicks and given a sequel greenlight to whichever one collected the most grains. Apparently. No matter what the process was for the studio to pick this particular film for another go-round, they’ve reportedly set the film’s original writer and director, Malcolm D. Lee (Undercover Brother, Roll Bounce, and Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins), to write, direct, and produce the sequel. Lee seems set on bringing back the film’s original cast, thanks to a recent reunion dinner with the various talents involved who all seemed warm to the idea. Despite the fact that the film may not spark much recognition in casual movie-going audiences (after all, movies that are more than a decade old are already getting the remake treatment), Lee’s first film actually included a great depth of emerging talent – including Taye Diggs, Nia Long, Morris Chestnut, Terrence Howard, Harold Perrineau, Sanaa Lathan, and Regina Hall.
