The Disney+ remake will be produced by Gordon Gray, who is best known for inspiring athletic dramas like Secretariat, The Rookie and more recently, The Way Back starring Ben Affleck.
Will Reichel wrote the script. A director has yet to be decided on.
Three Men And A Baby was actually a rehashing of a French film. The Leonard Nimoy-directed comedy was quite the hit, marking the first live-action Disney film to exceed $100million at the domestic box office.
It was followed up by 1990’s Three Men And A Little Lady, which added Nancy Travis to the ensemble.
