Nia Vardalos delivered some happy news to fans earlier this week – My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3 is happening!
The -year-old actress and creator of the movie franchise revealed that the third film is going to happen and will be shooting in Greece.
“Yes, it is true that for over a year we have been trying to film a script that I wrote called ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3’,” Nia explained, adding that “of course the entire cast is invited back.”
However, there is a little problem in getting it made right now.
“But what is also true is that we’re not filming. We are an independent film and apparently independent films cannot get insurance,” she added, while explaining that the film, which is considered an indie film can not get insurance to make the movie during the pandemic.
Nia continued, “I just wanted to explain this to you so that you, perhaps some of you, although I love your enthusiasm, can stop calling my mom’s house and asking if you can be in it.”
She signed off with a Greek goodbye, which translated to “When we get film insurance, we are going to Greece to film.”
The original 2002 movie, My Big Fat Greek Wedding centered on Fotoula “Toula” Portokalos (Vardalos), a middle class Greek American woman who falls in love with the upper middle class, non-Greek man named Ian Miller (John Corbett).
