2013 The Year Of Black Sequels?
2013 could be year of the sequels in black films. Our favorite movies such as “The Best Man” and “Waiting to Exhale” are all in the works for a part 2!
The sequel to “The Best Man” is titled “The Best Man Holiday” and the release date is set for November 15, 2013. The cast is going to many of the original cast including Nia Long, Taye Diggs, Morris Chestnut, Sanaa Lathan, Terrence Howard and many others! There’s not much say about the plot of the movie though. They are just saying that it's a follow-up movie, but it’s definitely in motion!
“Waiting to Exhale” is another movie that is in the making. Angela Bassett spoke in a recent interview with vibe magazine about the upcoming movie. She stated:
“They’re still writing. One of our original producers, from the first Exhale is on board, So that’s a good sign, but they’re still working on the script. It’s just how to deal with it [Whitney’s death]. And probably the best way to deal with it is just deal with it. It’s like what happens in life, in a way. Life is about life in passing, living and dying, winning and losing. So that’s what I know so far.”
There is no date set but Angela promises us that it’s in the works!
Will they replace Whitney with another actress and keep the same character, or will they cut the character completely and introduce a new friend? I'd love to see Kerry Washington as the 4th member of the girl's friendship circle. We all know she can play the high powered executive type. Waiting to Exhale also produced one of my favorite soundtracks. Hopefully WTE 2 will follow suit!
There is also a rumor that Love Jones is also gearing up for a sequel. But for now it's on our wish list.
