Gabrielle Union’s family is growing to 12 for the Cheaper by the Dozen remake.
The L.A.’s Finest star is teaming up with Black-ish creator Kenya Barris for a remake that will stream on Disney+. Disney announced the news during its Investor Day. This will be the third Cheaper by the Dozen remake.
The film centers on a blended family of 12, navigating a hectic home life and their family business.
The original Cheaper by the Dozen came out in 1950 and was based on the autobiographical book of the same name by Frank Bunker Gilbreth Jr. and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey.
It was first remade in 2003 and starred Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt as the parents to 12 kids. It grossed $190.2 million worldwide against a $40 million budget, spawning a sequel in 2005 titled Cheaper by the Dozen 2.
Though Gabrielle didn’t comment on the movie news, she did share a video to Instagram that’s all about the occasional chaos that comes with parenting. In the new post, which is in partnership with Tropicana, the actress can be seen hiding from her family and sneaking away to the bathroom for some R&R…and a mimosa.
She joked in the caption, “There is nothing I love more than mornings with my family but sometimes mama just needs a moment of brightness… in the bathroom with my secret mini fridge and a mimosa.”
The new Cheaper by the Dozen is set to debut in 2022 on Disney+.
