One of the films Disney has been looking to remake for quite some time now is Three Men and a Baby. When Disney+ was first announced reports quickly surfaced that the remake would head to the streamer as an exclusive release.
Now, thanks to Geek Vibes Nation, they are reporting that up-and-coming screenwriter Will Reichel (Hot Air) has been tapped to write the script, I can also back up their scoop, and even state a search for a director is currently on the way.
Producer Gordon Gray, who has worked on Disney projects such as Secretariat, Miracle, and Million Dollar Arm will produce the project, with studio execs Louie Provost (Lilo & Stitch remake) and Allison Erlickhman (The Little Mermaid remake) overseeing.
Here is a brief synopsis for the film that is expected to begin shooting later this year in Brooklyn, New York.
“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.”
Released in 1987, the original Three Men and a Baby starred Tom Selleck (Meet The Robinsons), Steve Guttenberg (The Big Green), and Ted Danson (The Good Place) as it centered on three bachelors who find themselves forced to take care of a baby left by one of the guys’ girlfriends. The film grossed over $165 million on an $11 million budget, and in 1990 the cast returned for the sequel Three Men and a Little Lady. Talks of a third film tentatively titled Three Men and a Bride were discussed for years but never materialized.
