As for the sequel, it is rare to get a whole cast to return when more than a decade has passed, and truly I think, when it comes to original movies and not ones based off someone who was alive, this is the best film featuring a Black majority cast in a while.

Hence why despite Omar Epps, Taye Diggs, and Sanaa Lathan being in it, their other movies from the…
