It was almost exactly 1 year ago when director Malcolm D. Lee revealed that the long-awaited sequel to The Best Man (The Best Man 2 - or whatever it'll eventually be called) had been officially greenlit by Universal.

We haven't heard much since that announcement, and I'd, in fact, forgotten about it... until today, thanks to an email announcement from Universal Pictures, in which the studio sets the release date for the thus far untitled sequel to The Best Man, for Friday, November 15, 2013.

It doesn't give a synopsis, other than to say that Malcolm D. Lee will obviously return to write and direct, as well as produce, with Sean Daniel (The Mummy series) co-producing with Lee.

For years, a sequel to the film that starred Taye Diggs, Nia Long, Terrance Howard, and Morris Chestnut as a group of old friends that reunite for a wedding, has been on the minds and mouths of fans of that first film. 

A reunion dinner with several members of the original cast, and Lee, only fueled rumors of a potential sequel.

Now it's a reality.

Nothing on casting yet either, but word is that the sequel will reprise the original cast, which also included Sanaa Lathan, Monica Calhoun, Melissa De Sousa and Harold Perrineau.

I can't say that I'm all-that interested in The Best Man 2 (I'll always prefer fresh stories, instead of recycling, revisiting or extending old ones). However, I'm definitely curious to find out what story (or stories) Lee will tell the second time around.

When we find out, so will you.

But it's officially dated for a November 15, 2013 release - about a year from now - so it's only a matter of time before news on casting and plot are revealed.

Meanwhile, Lee is busy directing Scary Movie 5 for Dimension Films.
