Actress, Sanaa Lathan is known for her roles in The Best Man, The family That preys, Brown sugar and Love & Basketball.

Lathan admits she wasn’t sure there was more to “The Best Man” story, when director Malcolm Lee first consider a sequel, but was convinced otherwise.

And she feels the same way about a potential “Love & Basketball” sequel.

“The story was kind of complete in my mind,” she told TheGrio.com about “Love & Basketball”.

The Best Man star is convinced the original cast would return for a sequel to “Love & Basketball” a romantic drama that first aired in 2000 starring herself and Omar Epps.

“The Best Man Holiday” reunited their entire cast from the 1999 surprise hit, “The Best Man” and with the two films being such a success, Lathan is ready for “The Best Man 3” which is expected to be already in the works.

In the meantime, Lathan is starring with Forest Whitaker, Anthony Mackie, Nicole Ari Parker and Mike Epps in “Repentance” , a psychological thriller set to release on February 28, 2014. The film has been described as a black version of Stephen King’s Misery.

“We definitely haven’t seen a lot of psychological thrillers with Black people. We get scared, too,”said Lathan
