A remake of the classic movie Father of the Bride is in the works!

Andy Garcia is set to star in the upcoming movie, which will focus on a Cuban-American family, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The movie will follow the “father of a soon-to-be bride coming to terms with daughters’ nuptials,” but this version will be told through “the relationships in a big, sprawling Cuban-American family.”

Club de CuervosGaz Alazraki will direct the film with a script by Matt Lopez.

Andy said in a statement, ā€œIā€™m very excited to join The Father of the Bride, a beloved film that has brought so much joy to so many over the years and to represent my Cuban culture and heritage in this story. I commend Warner Bros. for their foresight and celebrate this opportunity they have created.ā€

The original Father of the Bride movie starred Spencer Tracy and was released in 1950. A beloved remake starring Steve Martin was released in 1991.
