Nia Vardalos Confirms 'Big Fat Greek Wedding 3' Is Happening, But There's A Problem

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).

Nia Vardalos Had to Skip Her Dad's Funeral Because of the Global Health Crisis

My Big Fat Greek Wedding star Nia Vardalos has revealed that she missed her father’s funeral this month as she was unable to fly home to Canada due to the current health crisis facing the world.

The Oscar-nominated star told Variety that the last time she saw her dad was at Christmas.

Nia got to speak to her dad via FaceTime before he passed away. She said, “They held up the phone to him and I got to thank him for an incredible life and tell him he was a gentleman and he was a great dad. My mom held his hand and said, ‘It’s okay for you to go.’”

The funeral took place on March 19 and it was live streamed online.

“I always said my dad has impeccable timing,” Nia said. She believes he waited to pass away until friends and family were unable to fly in for the funeral because of new social distancing rules.

“If he had gone 14 days ago when they weren’t acknowledging the global threat, we all would have gathered and it could have brought down the city and also we would have gone back to all our communities and could have spread something,” Nia said. “He waited until the church said they couldn’t have any more large gatherings. I think my father knew he was keeping people safe.”

Nia is now encouraging fans to donate to Big Sunday Organization in memory of her father and to use #BigFatDonation on Twitter.
