Decades before Tom Selleck and his mustache were starring in the highly rated CBS cop drama Blue Bloods, back around the end of his Magnum, P.I. days, he and two other well known actors (Ted Danson and Steve Guttenberg) starred in a comedy about three bachelors who find themselves stuck taking care of a baby left by one of their girlfriends. Simply titled Three Men and a Baby, Leonard Nimoy (of Star Trek fame) directed the original 1987 comedy, which was a hit, grossing over $160 million domestically. The sequel came a few years later, but since Three Men and a Little Lady, we have yet to know what has become of the the three men or the baby/little lady.
There's been talk of another sequel for years, which would focus on the three men and a bride. If Mary was a baby in 1987, that would put her in her mid-late twenties about now, so the timing seems about right for her to be trying on wedding dresses. Selleck appeared on CBS's daytime talk show The Talk this week and they asked him about the status of the film. Watch the video below.
"I heard it was, so yes," Selleck said, when asked about the Three Men and a Bride film."I've talked to Ted and I talked to Steve Guttenberg, and we'd love to get back together if they've got a good idea. I think that's a good idea. It seemed to be real and then disappear, so I don't know…"
It sounds like Selleck is game and from what he says, Danson and Guttenberg might be interested. EW followed up with Disney on the project and a spokesperson confirmed that it "remains in early development." So there's a chance. And there's certainly potential in a story that involves the three guys dealing with seeing Mary walk down the aisle. There could be a sort of Three Men meets Father of the Bride quality to the story that could work nicely for an updated follow-up to the original two comedies.
We'll have to wait and see if there's any further update on this. In the meantime, here's a classic scene from Three Men and a Baby.
