Circumstances have been set in motion for Disney and Warner Bros. to figure out the rights to “Father of the Bride 3.” For this third installment, where can the story take the Banks family where they haven’t already gone? It appears Little Matty Banks is not so little anymore. In fact, he’s 29 and gay and has his sights set on marrying a U.S. Navy SEAL’s son. George is “thunderstruck and speechless” and has issues with the whole gay thing. George’s wife Nina kicks him out of the house for making such a fuss. Here’s hoping that Franck (Martin Short) is on hand to smooth out any bumps in the road. It appears Disney loves the story. So, stay tuned!
A source for Nikki Finke had this to say:
“It’s a timely idea. I told Charles I just hope it goes forward before gay stops trending…”
“Father of the Bride 3” is in preproduction. Steve Martin will reprise his role as the confused patriarch George Banks. Charles Shyer and Marc Klein are writing the screenplay. David Hoberman will produce, while Charles Shyer directs.
