Steve Martin ready for another 'Cheaper by the Dozen'
UPI News Service, 03/11/2005
Steve Martin will reunite with "Bringing Down the House" director Adam Shankman for a sequel to 2003's "Cheaper by the Dozen."
Shankman -- who directed the Jennifer Lopez-Matthew McConaughey romantic comedy "The Wedding Planner" and the Mandy Moore drama "A Walk to Remember" -- has become one of the hottest comedy directors in Hollywood. "Bringing Down the House" grossed $132.5 million at the U.S. box office and his latest project -- the Vin Diesel comedy "The Pacifier" -- took in $30.5 million last weekend when it opened at No. 1.
Shankman told Daily Variety deals are being worked out for Martin and other cast members from "Cheaper by the Dozen," including Bonnie Hunt and Piper Perabo, but he said it was questionable whether Hilary Duff would return for the sequel. The story for the new movie follows the family with 12 kids as they go on a vacation and run into trouble with another family from the neighborhood that has eight kids.
"Cheaper by the Dozen," directed by Shawn Levy, grossed $138 million.
