Just after Martin Lawrence revealed that he is prepping for a sequel to A Thin Line Between Love And Hate, comedy franchise Barbershop has announced it’s 3rd installment. The film currently entitled ‘Barbershop 3’ has plans for previous stars Ice Cube, and Cedric The Entertainer to return.
They’re still barbering his deal, but MGM is hiring The Best Man franchise director Malcolm D. Lee to direct Barbershop 3, the sequel that is coming together fast with deals being made for Ice Cube and Cedric the Entertainer to reprise their roles. Cube Vision is producing. Bob Teitel and George Tillman Jr. of State Street Pictures are the lead producers. The first film grossed $75 million domestic in 2002 and the 2004 sequel grossed $65 million domestic. Lee, whose stock has soared with two Best Man hits and a third coming in 2016, is repped by Paradigm and attorney Gordon Bobb.
