Townsend also dropped some much-awaited news on the show this morning. He says there will be a follow-up to his popular 1991 movie The Five Heartbeats which starred Leon and Michael Wright as members of a Temptations-style singing group. Given the recent success of The Best Man Holiday it might be the right time to get it made.
“I am working on a sequel,” Townsend confirms. “Next year I’ll be making an announcement.”
