THREE MEN AND A BABY Remake Headed to Disney+, will Star Zac Efron
By Allyson Vannatta, Senior Writer
Zac Efron is heading back to his Disney roots to star in the remake of THREE MEN AND A BABY.
Efron found fame portraying Troy Bolton in Disney’s HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL trilogy over a decade ago.
More recently, the 32-year-old actor can be seen in his Netflix travel series DOWN TO EARTH WITH ZAC EFRON. He also voiced Fred in Warner Bros.’ SCOOB!
The remake of the 80’s movie is intended to be released on Disney’s streaming service, Disney+.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gordan Gray will produce the movie.
In the past, Gray produced MCFARLAND USA, which was nominated for two Movieguide® Awards in 2016, along with family-friendly movies THE ROOKIE (2002), MIRACLE, INVINCIBLE, THE GAME PLAN, and SECRETARIAT.
Most recently, Gray produced THE WAY BACK (2020) starring Ben Affleck.
As of now, the remake doesn’t have a director attached.
The 1987 comedy originally brought together Tom Selleck, Steve Guttenberg and Ted Danson.
The movie’s plot features three New York City bachelors as they find themselves caring for a newborn baby.
The original movie, directed by Leonard Nimoy, was Disney’s first live-action movie to make over $100 million domestically.
Because of the success, a sequel, THREE MEN AND A LITTLE LADY, was released in 1990 with the same cast.
Movieguide®’s review says that the sequel proves, “That monogamous marriage and having children by your spouse for life is the highest social order, and that love conquers difficult situations.”
