It looks like Three Men And A Bride has been abandoned for good, as Disney presses ahead with a (new) remake of Three Men And A Baby.
Disney continues to go through the list of things that it bought when it acquired 20th Century Fox, with a view to making remakes or reboots for its new streaming service. And the fickle finger of remake fate has now landed at the door of Three Men And A Baby.
This was, of course, a hit movie in the 1980s, with Steve Guttenberg, Ted Danson and Tom Selleck starring. Leonard Nimoy directed the film. The film in turn was a remake of the French movie Trois Hommes Et Un Couffin, and it was followed by the sequel Three Men And A Little Lady. A planned third film, Three Men And A Bride, ultimately never came to pass.
Instead, Disney has now hired Will Reichel to pen the script for another remake. The working synopsis of the film is “Life for an NYC bachelor and his two single friends is hilariously turned upside down when a girlfriend dumps a baby in his lap and disappears from his life forever”.
It doesn’t seem likely that the original trio of character will be returning. Frankly, Selleck doesn’t even have the moustache anymore.
No news on casting or a director as of yet. We’ll keep you posted as we hear more on the project. We did a podcast on the original film, incidentally, that you can hear here.
