Cheaper by the Dozen 2: According to Variety, Twentieth Century Fox has hired Sam Harper to pen a second installment of last year's hit Cheaper by the Dozen.

While no cast deals have been made yet, Harper is planning on delivering a second "Cheaper" by mid-summer to Fox brass.

"Cheaper," based on the book by Frank B. and Ernestine Gilbreth, propagated a healthy $136 million domestically after its opening at Christmas last year.
