Hot off the presses, straight from my email inbox...

Universal Pictures’ THE BEST MAN WEDDING will be released on Friday, April 15, 2016

About THE BEST MAN WEDDING

The cast of THE BEST MAN series returns to celebrate the group’s most unexpected wedding to date.  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. 

The Universal Pictures release date announcement didn't come with any specific casting info, but we can assume that those who made it to the end of the last film, will return for this third and final one (at least I assume it'll be the last one, completing a trilogy).

After a $30.1 million opening weekend, the 2nd film in the franchise, "The Best Man Holiday," released last fall, went on to gross over $70 million in domestic box office, making for a profitable film for the studio, given that it cost only $17 million to make. So it really shouldn't be much of a surprise that a 3rd film is of interest to the studio.

Malcolm D. Lee admitted that he already had a 3rd film brewing on paper, before the 2nd film even opened.

As for what audiences can expect from it, in the Vibe video interview that follows, director Lee, while on the red carpet last month for the ABFF premiere of his cousin Spike Lee's "Da Sweet Blood of Jesus," teases us with a few plot points, intercut with star Morris Chestnut (also at the ABFF), who we can assume will be back for number 3, doing the same:
