Steve, what are you thinking?
Shankman Helming Cheaper Sequel
March 11, 2005
Adam Shankman (Bringing Down the House) will direct 20th Century Fox's sequel to Cheaper by the Dozen, reuniting with him with topliner Steve Martin, says Variety.
The deal calls for Shankman to begin pre-production immediately and have the film ready to start principal photography by June.
The story is again by Sam Harper (Just Married) and follows the 12-kid family on vacation and in a head-to-head competition with a rival neighborhood family of eight kids.
"Cheaper" co-stars Bonnie Hunt and Piper Perabo's deals are being worked out but Hilary Duff's return is still questionable. The original, released in 2003, grossed $138 million.
