More Steve Martin Movie News

March 11th, 2003

Bringing Down the House opened huge last weekend and it looks like Steve Martin’s movie career is going to grow just as huge. Already in production is Shopgirl, based on Steve Martin’s novel and Picasso at the Lapin Agile, based on his successful stage play. And now it’s been announced that he will star in a contemporary remake of Cheaper by the Dozen.

Based on the 1950 movie of the same name, which was based on the real-life story of the Gilbreth family, Cheaper by the Dozen also stars Bonnie Hunt. And yesterday it was reported that Tom Welling and Hilary Duff will be joining the cast. Tom Welling, best known as Superman on the TV series Smallville will make his movie debut playing the eldest son. And Hilary Duff’s role as one of the daughters was written specifically for her, a sure sign of her increasing popularity. Hilary Duff is best known as Lizzie McGuire and can also been seen in Agent Cody Banks, opening this weekend.

Filming is set to begin at the end of the month with a release date sometime in 2004.
