BARBERSHOP: THE NEXT CUT (also known as Barbershop 3) is an upcoming 2016 comedy film directed by Malcolm D. Lee (The Best Man films, Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins) and written by Kenya Barris (Black-ish) and Tracy Oliver (The Neighbors), based on characters created by Mark Brown. It is a direct sequel to the 2004 film Barbershop 2: Back in Business and the fourth film overall in the Barbershop film series, following the 2002 original Barbershop film and the 2005 spin-off Beauty Shop.
It’s been more than 10 years since our last appointment at Calvin’s Barbershop. Calvin (Ice Cube) and his longtime crew, including Eddie (Cedric the Entertainer), are still there, but the shop has undergone some major changes. Most noticeably, our once male-dominated sanctuary is now co-ed. The ladies bring their own flavor, drama and gossip to the shop challenging the fellas at every turn. Despite the good times and camaraderie within the shop, the surrounding community has taken a turn for the worse, forcing Calvin and our crew to come together to not only save the shop, but their neighborhood.
The film also stars Regina Hall, Common, Sean Patrick Thomas, Eve, Anthony Anderson, Jaszmine Lewis, JB Smoove, and Nicki Minaj.
