It turns out that the plan for the second Three Men And A Baby sequel would have taken things down a slightly surprising route.
For a while over the past decade or two, there’s been chatter about a trilogy-closing sequel to Three Men And A Baby and Three Men And A Little Lady. The project was set to bring Steve Guttenberg, Tom Selleck and Ted Danson back in the lead roles.
In recent times, though, any flickering light for the movie looks to have been extinguished with the news that a remake (of the remake, considering Three Men And A Baby is itself a remake of the French movie Trois Hommes Et Un Couffin) is on the cards.
Over at Moviehole, they’ve caught up with the screenwriter who had put the script for the unmade third movie together. That writer is Dara Resnik, and she’s revealed at least one planned direction for the film.
She revealed that the project did have some momentum, and off-the-record chats were had with the leading actors’ agents about their availability. Plotwise, though, the movie would have taken a bit of a turn. “Nancy Travis’ character would have died off-screen before the movie in our draft. This gave us a chance to have Tom Selleck’s character go through a very emotional time just as his daughter was getting married herself”, Resnik revealed.
The full interview reveals more: it’s Moviehole’s exclusive, so we’ve just given a taste here. As and when we hear more on the remake, we’ll let you know…
