According to Twitter, The Best Man 2 just locked down its titular character. Fans of the first movie, The Best Man, will recall that Taye Diggs played the role of Harper, the writer who works overtime to get his best friend down the aisle. We reported last week that Malcom D. Lee, who wrote and directed the 1999 classic, had been installed at the helm of the sequel and was looking to reunite the original cast. Now Diggs has confirmed that both he and his onscreen love interest Sanaa Lathan will return for the new movie. He posted on Twitter this weekend: “Ran into talented @justsanaa (Sanaa Lathan) at a holiday party. We chatted about The Best Man 2. Will be so great to work w her again.” The film is still in development, and is slated for a 2013 release.
