Residents have been excited about the latest celeb sighting in Hoboken’s W hotel – and for good reason. Some of Hollywood’s most beloved stars including Morris Chestnut, Regina Hall, Sanaa Lathan, and Nia Long might be in town filming the latest edition of The Best Man movie franchise – except this time, as a limited series show. Read on to learn more about the filming at the W Hotel in Hoboken and about the new film.
Now a three-film series, the original film, The Best Man debuted in 1999, the second, The Best Man Holiday in 2013, and now the third one has been picked up by Peacock in the form of a 10 episode show, The Best Man: The Final Chapters which is currently being filmed and likely means it will debut towards the end of 2022 or the beginning of 2023.
Fans are most excited about the core stars returning for the new series and bringing closure to their characters that have captured viewers’ hearts for over a decade, as the movies become a large part of the culture.
“We’re excited to reunite this beloved cast for a limited series run of The Best Man for Peacock,” said Susan Rovner, Chairman, Entertainment Content, NBCUniversal Television, and Streaming in a statement. “With a powerhouse duo like Malcolm and Dayna at the helm, fans will fall in love with our favorite group of friends all over again.”
It’s been announced that the series will follow Harper, Robyn, Murch, Lance, Shelby, Candace, Quentin, Jordan, and Murch as they navigate life at their current age, including current and past relationships and other life obstacles.
Filming in Hoboken
Residents quickly noticed the film crew stationed inside and outside of The W hotel in Hoboken on March 15th. While we don’t know if the entire cast is in town, Julian Murch was spotted filming a scene along the side of the hotel on River between 2nd and 4th. He appeared to be casually walking up the block. The scene was likely capturing the skyline views in the back.
We called The W for details on how long the film crew would be set up at the site but unfortunately, they are unable to share any details about the film.
At the moment, we don’t know any further details about the cast’s time in town but we will keep you updated as more details unfold.
