Yesterday we dropped the news that comedians Deon Cole and JB Smoove are joining the film Barbershop 3, the MGM sequel that New Line is ramping up to film in Atlanta in a couple of weeks.
As we also reported we discovered that rapper/actor Common also committed to star in the film.
Today we heard that actress Regina Hall (The Best Man, Scary Movie fame) has joined the cast! We also discovered that she will be a beauty salon owner and will take the place of Queen Latifah’s character, who is no longer attached.
Latifah joins Michael Ealy, who also passed on not reprising his role as Eve’s boyfriend.
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.
Stay tuned as this story is still developing!
