I don’t even know why I’m sharing this news. Nobody needs to know this. Nobody is going to be sharing this news with their friends and family. No one is going to brag of their knowledge. No one will keep it in their brains any longer than it takes you to read this piece. You’ll completely forget about it until the trailer, two years from now, and then you will find some pillowed bosom to hide in until the apocalypse ends.
But here it is, all the same: Randi Mayem Singer (Mrs. Doubtfire) is returning to the conceit that made him a name no one knows. No: There’s not a Mrs. Doubtfire sequel, because not even Robin Williams would stoop that low. No. Singer is penning a script for Big Momma’s House 3.
Why? It’s pretty easy, really. Because the first two movies made nearly $200 million combined, domestically, and because — save for Wild Hogs and the Bad Boys movies — they are the biggest hits on Martin Lawrence’s resume. Dude’s gotta do something, besides Wild Hogs 2, of course (due in 2011). Martin Lawrence hasn’t signed on yet, but come on. What choice does he have? And if he doesn’t, well, there’s always Tracy Morgan.
