The comedian, who starred in the first two installments of the series in the early '90s, took to Twitter Monday to express his confusion about the project, which reports indicated he was definitely returning for.
Martin's message clearly comes with a healthy dose of sarcasm, and certainly calls into question the accuracy of the film's development in the first place. Then again, filmmakers may be working behind the scenes to gauge studio interest and get a story in place before approaching the cast, especially since securing a green light from the studio most likely hinges upon those original stars' return.
So excited to read I'm doing Father of the Bride 3 since I haven't seen a script or been offered the role!- Steve Martin (@SteveMartinToGo) June 16, 2014
Stay tuned to see if this franchise actually becomes a trilogy.
