Sequel to 1999’s ‘Best Man’ in the Works

7774468.jpg12 years after it first debuted in theaters, The Best Man is finally getting the sequel that fans have been desperately clamoring for. Deadline reports Universal has signed Best Man writer-director Malcolm D. Lee to craft a follow-up to his 1999 comedy, about a writer (Taye Diggs, pictured right) whose best pal (Morris Chestnut) is about to marry a woman (Nia Long) who, unbeknownst to the groom-to-be, he once slept with. Lee was reportedly inspired to pursue the project after a reunion dinner with some of the original castmembers, whom he hopes to bring back for the sequel.


On the big screen, Taye Diggs most recently starred in the little-seen comic-book flick Dylan Dog: Dead of Night. He currently plays Dr. Sam Bennet in the ABC drama Private Practice. Click on the image below for more pics of the actor:
