Andy Garcia leads the cast in the upcoming remake of the family comedy, Father Of The Bride: here’s the trailer.
We’ve known for around a year now that a Latinx-focused version of the Father Of The Bride story has been coming. This will be the third re-imagining of the series after the 1950s original and the much-loved 1991 version that was headed up by the mighty Steve Martin.
This time around, Gary Alzaraki is directing whilst Matt Lopez, scribe of Race To Witch Mountain, has penned the story which is set to follow a large Cuban-American family.
Andy Garcia will take on the role of the titular father of the bride in the film, which is set to release next month, in the US at least. Garcia can combine humour and charm as he did so well in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, and here the actor is joined by a fun ensemble, including Gloria Estefan, Adria Arjona, Diego Boneta, Chloe Fineman, Isabela Merced, Enrique Murciano, Macarena Achaga, Laura Harring and Pedro Damian.
Warner Bros and Plan B have produced the project, which is going straight to the former’s streaming platform, HBO Max in the US. Warner Bros will be handling distribution here in the UK but we don’t as yet have an official release date. Like its predecessors, the film will focus ‘on the father of a soon-to-be bride coming to terms with his daughter’s nuptials and will be told through the relationships in a big, sprawling family. Adding a complication to all this and new to the remake is Garcia and Estefan’s characters have a secret – they’re getting a divorce.’
A UK release date is surely imminent, but in the meantime you can catch the trailer below to tide you over until we hear more details.
