Now it has been revealed that Andy Garcia will be starring in the reboot film as well. In a statement, here is what Andy Garcia said about him starring in the upcoming film:
I’m very excited to join The Father of the Bride, a beloved film that has brought so much joy to so many over the years and to represent my Cuban culture and heritage in this story. I commend Warner Brothers for their foresight and celebrate this opportunity they have created. I am looking forward to my collaboration with our talented director Gaz Alazraki and producers Jeremy Kleiner and Dede Gardner from Plan B.
According to Deadline, the reboot film will be similar to the original film starring Spencer Tracy more so than the Steve Martin films. Matt Lopez will be writing the script for the film and it will be directed by Gaz Alazraki. We will have to see how the reboot film turns out to be.
