Three Men and a Baby remake director

Disney turned on the Content Spigot and unleashed a torrential flow of announcements during its Investor Day presentation at the end of last year. One of the seemingly endless number of projects that were confirmed was a remake of the 1987 comedy Three Men and a Baby. Zac Efron has been attached to star for a few months, and now word has come out that the company has hired a director for the project: Mo Marable, who’s name you might recognize from the opening credits of shows like IFC’s Brockmire or Hulu’s Woke.

We here at /Film covered the biggest of the big news yesterday, but there were still plenty of odds and ends left to round-up.

So gather round, children, and allow me to tell you the tale of the future Disney has in store for all of us. As a wise man once said, we are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives.

Three Men and a Baby remake

In early 2018, we heard that a Three Men and a Baby remake was in the works at Disney+. Now that movie has found one of its lead actors in a former Disney star: Zac Efron, who broke out thanks to his work in the High School Musical movies, will play one of the titular men in the new version.

At least we think that’s who he’s playing. I mean, if they wanted to, the folks at Disney could do some sort of wild digital de-aging and have him play the baby instead. Would that be super weird and remind us of that fake movie within Funny People in which Adam Sandler’s full-sized adult head is on a child’s body? Yes. But would it make us more intrigued to watch this remake? Also yes. Your move, Disney.

A new Disney streaming service is coming in 2019, and now we finally have some concrete ideas of what sorts of films and TV products the company will debut on it.

If someone showed you the trailer for Adam Sandler‘s Jack & Jill right before Funny People was released, you would have sworn it was a Judd Apatow joke. Unfortunately, that film isn’t a joke but the latest Sandler rumor is. According to a recent rumor, Sandler was inspired by an episode of MTV’s True Life to produce a remake of Three Men and a Baby featuring his friends David Spade, Chris Rock, and Rob Schneider. In this updated version, though, the twist would be that the men aren’t straight; they’re gay polyamorists.

Sounds a little too wacky to be true and, according to Disney, it is. They deny the rumor. Still, crazier things have happened. Read more about this rumor after the jump. Read More »

Three men and a baby

In November 2008, Steve Guttenberg claimed that a third Three Men and a Baby film was being developed:

“Tom Selleck, Ted Danson and I are looking to make another Three Men And A Baby movie,” says Steve. “It’s called Three Men and A Bride. The script is pretty much written and we are really keen to get that made. We’re very hopeful.”

We haven’t heard anything about the threequel since, and I just assumed that it dropped into development heck. But now Tom Selleck says that the project is still in development.

Steve Guttenberg told The Sun over the weekend that a screenplay is being written for an eighth Police Academy movie with all the available original stars set to return.

“So far it is really great, everyone from the original movies who is still around will return,” says” Guttenberg. “I know Kim and Sharon have been asked but they haven’t said yes yet. It would be really great to have them onboard.”

But didn’t Mission to Moscow say everything that needed to be said? Do we really need another Police Academy sequel? And who is the audience for this film? Would people return to the theaters just for a pop culture flashback? I think not. And if that doesn’t scare you, how about a third Three Men and a Baby film?

“Tom Selleck, Ted Danson and I are looking to make another Three Men And A Baby movie,” says Steve. “It’s called Three Men and A Bride. The script is pretty much written and we are really keen to get that made. We’re very hopeful.”

Hopeful isn’t the first word that comes into my mind. But then again, I’m not Steve Guttenberg.
