This news is from a couple of months ago, but I just came across it recently. Apparently, a remake of the classic “Father of the Bride” movie is in the works and will be based on a Cuban American family throwing a typical Cuban wedding.
A “Father of the Bride” film remake with a Cuban American twist is in development at Warner Bros, according to an individual with knowledge of the project.
Screenwriter Matt Lopez is penning the script for the romantic comedy. For the remake, Lopez will draw on his experience from attending Cuban weddings. Executives Jesse Ehrman and Paul Perez will oversee development of the project at the studio.
Personally, I’m looking forward to seeing this classic story told from a Cuban American perspective. I can only hope it doesn’t get the leftist Hollywood treatment and they produce some Latinx atrocity that neither reflects the true nature of Cuban Americans nor our culture in a misguided quest to make some banal social justice statement.
