Gloria Estefan joins Andy García in the "remake" of "The father of the bride"

Los Angeles (USA), Apr 23 (EFE) .- Gloria Estefan will accompany Andy García and Adria Arjona in the Latin version of the comedy "El padre de la novia" that Warner Bros and Mexican director Gaz Alazraki are preparing .

"My answer was a resounding 'yes' when receiving the invitation to accompany my good friend, the talented Andy García, in a new incarnation full of humor, heart and a lot of flavor, of the classic film" The father of the bride' " The singer wrote on her Instagram account on Friday.

Estefan also said that he admires Alazraki a lot since his success with the comedy "We the Nobles" (2013).

Also known for the series "Club de Cuervos" (2015-2019), Alazraki will be the director of this "remake" that will feature this time and as a novelty with a Latin family as the protagonist.

The screenwriter Matt Lopez, who has worked on such films as "Bedtime stories" (2008) by Adam Sandler or "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" (2010) starring Nicolas Cage, will write this new film.

Steve Martin led the 1991 comedy "Father of the Bride" in which a father was reluctant to see his daughter marry the love of his life and thus move away from the family home.

Diane Keaton, Martin Short and Kimberly Williams-Paisley also starred in this popular sitcom, which also showed all the difficulties involved in organizing and planning a wedding, under the direction of Charles Shyer.

This filmmaker repeated in the sequel "The father of the bride II" (1995), in which the entire cast returned with Steve Martin at the helm and in which, instead of trouble due to a wedding, the problems in the family came from a pregnancy.

However, the 1991 film by Steve Martin, who in those years was one of the most popular actors in Hollywood, was actually a "remake" of a film with a similar premise and the same title from 1950 that Spencer Tracy headed, Elizabeth Taylor and Joan Bennett directed by filmmaker Vincente Minnelli.

This first film garnered three Oscar nominations (Best Picture, Best Actor for Spencer Tracy, and Best Screenplay for Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett), but eventually none of those statuettes could be taken home.
