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.
