Just when I thought the Big Mamma's House franchise might be through, the third installment seemed to have an easy enough time finding a cast. Martin Lawrence was already given the company of Brandon T. Jackson and Jessica Lucas -- who were already cast -- and now Faizon Love, Emily Rios, Portia Doubleday and Michelle Ang have jumped aboard the project.
Faizon Love, Emily Rios, Portia Doubleday and Michelle Ang for Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son
John Whitesell, who directed the second installment, will direct Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son off a script by Matthew Fogel and Randi Mayem Singer.
In the third installment, Big Momma (Lawrence) and Charmaine (Jackson) go undercover at an all-girls performing-arts school to unmask a murderer. Love will play Kurtis Kool, a school security guard and former Run-D.M.C. roadie who becomes smitten with Big Momma. Rios, Doubleday and Ang will play students at the school who befriend Jackson's character.
The film begins shooting this month in Atlanta at the private, all-girls Agnes Scott College.
