Adam Sandler Gives ‘Three Men and a Baby’ Remake a Polyamory Spin?

The star of ‘Jack and Jill’ is looking to write and produce a new comedy with David Spade, Rob Schneider, and Chris Rock as a gay trio who take in a baby.

David Spade, Chris Rock, and Rob Schneider may star in Three Men and a Baby remake Did Adam Sandler not learn anything from I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry? Aiming to go even more lowbrow than his upcoming Jack and Jill, the comedian is toying with the idea of remaking Three Men and a Baby. Only now, the swinging bachelor trio who become the protective guardians of an infant will be a polyamorous gay couple played by David Spade, Chris Rock, and Rob Schneider.

Walt Disney Pictures has been sitting on a remake of Three Men and a Baby for a while. In 2009, a reboot of the franchise was rumored with a cast that included Zac Efron, Jonah Hill, and Justin Long in the parts originated by Tom Selleck, Steve Guttenberg, and Ted Danson.

There has also long been talk of a proper sequel called Three Men and a Bride, which would reunite the original cast for a wedding. Both the sequel and the remake have stalled, but insiders at Disney, the company behind Adam Sandler's Bedtime Stories, say that the studio is eager to work with him again, and this may be his next producing gig after starring in I Hate You Dad and lending his voice to Hotel Transylvania.

Adam Sandler will not appear in Three Men and a Baby, but will likely have a cameo. He will have a heavy hand in getting it to the screen, though, playing the same role he played in getting Nick Swardson's Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star made.

Adam Sandler is said to have gotten the polyamory spin idea from an episode of MTV's Real Life, which focused on three gay men attempting to bring a forth person into their relationship. David Spade, Chris Rock, and Rob Schneider, who all last appeared together in Adam Sandler's Grown Ups, are said to like the idea, and they may contribute to the screenplay as well.

Three Men and a Baby was released November 25th, 1987.

        Will this also include the ghostly cardboard cutout?

          What an incredibly bad idea...


          • AnneL • 4 years ago

            The movie would definitely work if Adam Sandler plays the baby!

              If a remake is ever made I guess I'll have to live with it. But having a remake with the guys being gay is just taking it to far and very stupid.


              • moviegeek • 4 years ago

                I hate these movies. So unfunny.

                  @ejk1 i totally agree with you. though i did like the waterboy and the longest yard too. but thats about it. i honestly can't get into most of his movies. even the ones everyone thinks are so funny like billy madison or happy gilmore. i haven't seen his dramas.

                    dammit I HAVE to kill you!

                      Apparently it has a lot to do with it or I wouldn't have said it.

                        RojoDiablo what the hell does him being a nice guy have to do with it? the criticism is on his movies and wheter or not we find him funny or not.


                        • rojodiablo • 4 years ago

                          Man it's getting old hearing all the negative comments on Sandler, which he doesn't deserve because he really is a great guy, if you ever get to meet him. I personally think he's a talented guy and have enjoyed all of his movies, even the recent ones. I'm not writing this off before it's even been made, could turn out to be quite funny with these guys involved in the writing process.

                            I'm a big Adam Sandler fan but this is just a stupid idea.

                              I'm shocked...

                                LOL...this is stupid and its still gonna happen people, too bad.

                                  REIGN OVER ME was, in my opinion, his best performance. he didn't write it, produce it, or that it wasn't really a comedy, but I'd never thought he could make me cry in a performance like that. haha. anyways, whatever happened to planning of the sequel "Three Men and a Bride"? did it get cancelled or something? I never saw the original, but I don't think this'll work out well. haha.


                                  • thehost91 • 4 years ago

                                    Punch-Drunk Love featured his best performance.

                                      regardless of how bad his recent films have been (which they have been), this storyline sounds awful! i'd be down for a remake of the original storyline... but have zero interest in a gay trio. pass.
