If there’s going to be a Father of the Bride 3, someone might want to tell Steve Martin – who played title character George in 1991’s Father of the Bride and 1995’s Father of the Bride Part II.
After rumors about a possible third film – which may or may not involve Matty, the titular bride’s younger brother, getting married to another man – began circulating yesterday, Martin quickly jumped on Twitter to respond to reports saying he was set to reprise his role. According to Martin, he hasn’t seen a script or even been offered a part in the film.
So excited to read I’m doing Father of the Bride 3 since I haven’t seen a script or been offered the role! — Steve Martin (@SteveMartinToGo) June 16, 2014
So for now, it seems Matty and George are right where we left them.
UPDATE: Disney has confirmed that the rumors of a third film are false and that Father of the Bride 3 is not in development.
