Big Momma's House 3 in the Works
09.04.09 by REELZ
Okay, we all thought from the beginning that Martin Lawrence
waddling around in a fat suit in Big Momma's House
was a cheap, inferior rip-off of Robin Williams
and his antics in Mrs. Doubtfire
. And we know that lately (and always?) Hollywood has been cranking out sequel after remake after sequel, completely shirking any whiff of originality. But we probably have to give the studios some credit: at least they're being blatantly transparent about it.
Cinema Blend reports that 20th Century Fox made an announcement that not only will there be a Big Momma's House 3, but the studio is hiring the very same screenwriter who penned Mrs. Doubtfire! Wow, and we thought they were at least trying to act like the whole thing wasn't a rip-off.
Yes it's true: Randi Mayem Singer will give us the third installment of latex-laced mediocrity. No word yet on a director or any cast members, although it would be hard to imagine they'd make it without Lawrence. We'll let you know when we hear more. That is, if you actually want to know more.
