Steve Martin and Disney shoot down report about “Father of the Bride 3″ with gay son’s wedding
So yesterday there was a report from Nikki Finke that Disney was developing a sequel to Father of the Bride II in which the son of Steve Martin and Diane Keaton’s characters is gay and engaged to marry the son of a former Navy SEAL.
Martin took to Twitter to debunk the report: “So excited to read I’m doing Father of the Bride 3 since I haven’t seen a script or been offered the role!”
Okay, but that doesn’t mean it’s not in the works, right?
Well, Disney puts the nail in the coffin by telling Entertainment Weekly that the rumors of a third film are false and that Father of the Bride 3 is not in development.
But Finke also reports that Disney and Warner Bros. are sorting out the rights to the Father of the Bride franchise.
Well, here’s what I think: If not, maybe it should be in development because a whole lot of people would pay to see it!
Let’s have fun and cast the son for the third movie we hope will happen.
I say cast Chandler Massey, the two-time Emmy winner formerly of Days of Our Lives!
Who do you think?
