Nia Vardalos Announces She’s Directing “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3” Right Now, In Greece


Big surprise announcement today from Nia Vardalos: She’s directing the third installment of “My Big Fat Greek Wedding.”

The cast and crew is in Greece right now, filming. John Corbett, Lainie Kazan and the rest of the cast from the original two movies are in the cast. Sadly, Michael Constantine, who played Nia’s father, passed away last year.

Tom Hanks, Gary Gary Goetzman, and Rita Wilson are producing again, this time for HBO and Focus. Nia is a terrific girl, and I’m so happy for her!

What is this one about? Well, there’d better be a wedding. Could it be the child of Nia and John getting hitched? Her name is Paris, and when we saw her last she was headed to college at NYU.

I’d say, check the registry.
