It took fourteen years for followers of Malcolm D. Lee’s romantic comedy The Best Man (1999) to get a sequel and so they could also be ready simply as lengthy for an additional.
On the finish of 2013’s emotional The Best Man Vacation, the arrange for a 3rd movie (tentatively titled A Best Man Wedding ceremony) was fairly apparent with the libidinous playboy Quentin, performed by Terrence Howard, asserting that he was lastly getting married. It could be a humorous and poignant method to wrap up the trilogy about school mates navigating the transition from single to married life. However in line with a current interview with director and producer Malcolm D. Lee, we might by no means see the bachelor get together to finish all bachelor events when Q ties the knot.
In a prolonged sit-down with CaliforniaSunday, Lee particulars the struggles he had in even getting Best Man Vacation made.
“I advised [the cast], ‘If we do that, no one’s getting paid what they’re price. You bought to consider this as an indie film with studio financing.’ ”
Nevertheless, the movie went on to have a $30 Million opening weekend and grossed $72.eight million on a $17 Million funds. Having made its a reimbursement with an viewers rating of 83% on Rotten Tomatoes, a sequel looks like a no brainer. However not in line with Lee.
At first it appeared the studio needed to make a 3rd — Lee thinks it is going to be the very best one, “the Malcolm Lee film we’d anticipate.” However they received’t pay. It’s been delayed indefinitely. “I don’t really feel at this level that I ought to must battle. I sort of paid my dues.”
Provided that the solid took pay cuts to do the second it’s potential (and affordable) that they’d need extra for the BMW. To not point out that a lot of the solid may be very busy. Howard is stacking checks on Empire, Sanaa Lathan has Nappily Ever After approaching Netflix and Nia Lengthy has been on NCIS: Los Angeles, simply to call just a few. So let’s hope that by the point the studio comes up off a funds that they’ll pull off the minor miracle of getting the entire unique solid members again a 3rd time.
