Lewis will reprise her role as Jennifer, Ice Cube's wife in the film. Principal photography begins in Atlanta next month. "Barbershop" and "Barbershop 2: Back In Business" were big hits for MGM so many expected there to be another film. Malcolm D. Lee ("The Best Man Holiday," "Scary Movie 5") will direct this new movie.
"I can't wait to get to Atlanta and to start shooting," Lewis said. "This cast is one of the best to work with and it is great most everyone has signed on to come back. Plus adding Malcolm as the director and Nicki to the cast, this is going to be even more special."
Lewis has appeared in a long list of films and television shows including "My Sister's Wedding," "Flip The Script," on the feature film side and "Meet The Browns," "Eve," "Line of Fire," "Living Single" and others on the small screen. She is managed by Harris Management.
