Selleck, Danson, Guttenberg Back for Three Men and a Bride?
By now you'd think there's enough talk about sequels and remakes of movies from the 80's, with Midnight Run 2 and remakes of Fright Night, Commando and plenty more in the works. However, maybe there's just not enough lined up as MTV talked to Tom Selleck who revealed that Disney is interested in Three Men and a Bride. a sequel to 1987's Three Men and a Baby, the comedy starring Selleck, Ted Danson and Steve Guttenberg and directed by none other than Leonard Nimoy (no joke!). Apparently fans (there are some?) have been wondering if we might see another sequel since 1990's Three Men and a Little Lady. Wait, really?
Guttenberg already mentioned the film last year, but he could've just been looking for some attention since he's not making any good movies and hasn't for the past decade or so. But now Selleck confirms the rumor:
"It is true that Disney checked my availability. And I know they checked Ted's and Steve's, and then had a script written, I think tentatively called 'Three Men and a Bride,' which kind of says it all [about the story]. I hope it's a good script, and if it is a good script I hope they do it, because it would be really fun to get back with Ted and Steve. The strongest of the two movies I think is the first one. It had more heart, and that's what I hope this third one would have if we do it."
At first, I thought that checking schedules couldn't have been that hard since I haven't seen a single film with any of them for who knows how long, but Selleck has a role in Killers (which opens this weekend) not to mention plenty of steady work on shows like "Las Vegas." Danson has also been on the TV bandwagon in series like "Bored to Death" and "Damages," so it seems like it's Guttenberg is the one who really needs the exposure. Honestly, this just seems like another ploy to get the older age groups, who aren't that interested in the studio tentpoles, back into the theaters. What's next? Father of the Bride Part 3 where Steve Martin gets pregnant? Some movies are just better left alone. Is anyone actually excited about seeing this?

will it have a ghost in it this time is the real question

I had forgotten about the ghost. Unfortunately for Disney, I had also forgotten about the movies. I don't envision a ton of interest for a new installment.

No. Please, no.

Steve Marin a great talent. He is good in anything he does. Not sure why you had to take a shot at him. You could have mentioned that Corey or a whole host of any number of actors instead of Steve Martin.

What has Steve Martin done lately that is good? Shop Girl is the last thing I can think of.

I think it would be a fitting end to the series...to see Mary all grown up and ready to get married. I say make the movie!!!!!

Ditto @ #8

I'm a fan of tom selleck and these are some of the best movies he's done. I feel the same as #7 & 8. I also expect there to be a TOY STORY 4 so Andy can get married and have kids of his own to play with Woody, Buzz and the gang. A fitting end to both movie series.
