Today we discovered the news that comedians Deon Cole and JB Smoove are joining the film Barbershop 3, the MGM sequel that New Line is ramping up.
According to reports, it looks like Common has also committed to star in the film. What is NOT being reported is the news that actor Michael Ealy will NOT be in the film, despite initial reports that he had signed on. It looks like Common’s new character is going to be married to Eve’s character since Ealy was just recently written out of the new script.
The Best Man franchise director Malcolm D. Lee is directing the new film as Ice Cube’s Cube Vision is producing and MGM will run production. Bob Teitel and George Tillman Jr of State Street Pictures are the lead producers. The script is written by Black-ish writer/producer Kenya Barris and Tracy Oliver.
