Zac Efron Lands Leading Role in ‘Three Men and a Baby‘ Remake for Disney+. The mega-popular 1987 film, ‘Three Men and a Baby‘ is getting a remake for Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+. High School Musical and The Greatest Showman star, Zac Efron is said to have accepted a leading role in the film according to THR. Three Men and a Baby was modeled after the 1985 French film, Trois Hommes et un Couffin (Three Men and a Cradle) and became an instant hit in theaters, quickly becoming the top title of 1987.
“New York City roommates Peter (Tom Selleck), Michael (Steve Guttenberg) and Jack (Ted Danson) are all successful and happily unmarried, but Peter and Michael get the surprise of a lifetime when a young woman abandons an infant in front of their loft. They also receive a letter stating that the child, named Mary, belongs to Jack, but he’s away on business. Michael and Peter are then forced to care for Mary — and though they make hopeless babysitters, they soon become quite attached to the girl.”
Will Reichel has penned the rework of the script for the project and Gordon Gray (The Way Back) is set to produce the film for Disney+. It is currently unknown who will direct the film or co-star alongside Zac Efron for the feature. The original 1987 version of the film is currently available to stream on Disney+.
