Is Father of the Bride 3 happening?

On Sunday, Nikki Finke reported that a new sequel to the franchise was in the works, “with Charles Shyer to write and direct… and Steve Martin to return.”

That’s news to Martin.

“So excited to read I’m doing Father of the Bride 3 since I haven’t seen a script or been offered the role!” he tweeted on Monday.


Martin’s tweet isn’t exactly a flat denial, and it’s possible the film is in development but not quite at contract stage.

But maybe don’t get too excited for the movie quite yet.

According to Finke, the new script would have Martin’s character’s son Matty, now 29 and gay, getting married to the son of a Navy SEAL.
