Since 2006, Martin Lawrence has dutifully risen everyday at 8am, marched into his temperature-controlled walk-in closet, and Febrezed "Big Momma," the bulbous fat suit he wore in Big Momma's House and Big Momma's House 2: Wider Load. "Maybe today we'll get the call," he'd whisper to the fat suit, while lifting up the mushy belly and spraying underneath. "And when they do, we'll be all fresh and ready to go, won't we, Big Momma? [in high-pitched Big Momma voice] Sho' will, Martin!" Then he'd toss the now empty bottle of Febreze into the trash, and head off to Best Buy to buy more copies of Madea's Family Reunion and Madea Goes To Jail DVDs to pile in his driveway and run over with his car.
Well, it appears that those hundreds of bottles of fabric refresher were worth it, because this morning Big Momma moved her slow thighs and slouched towards Fox to be reborn.
Fox may be ready for more Momma as the studio has tapped Randi Mayem Singer ("The Tooth Fairy") to pen "Big Momma's House 3."
Logline's under wraps for the second sequel…
The original "Big Momma's House," starring Martin Lawrence as an undercover agent and master of disguise, grossed $174 million worldwide in 2000 while "Big Momma's House 2" pulled in another $138 million in 2006.
Logline is still under wraps? But isn't the logline for all the Big Momma movies just "Martin Lawrence puts on a morbid obesity suit"? The movie's gonna have a plot this time? Why mess with a winning formula? Unless it's "Martin Lawrence and Tyler Perry put on their respective morbid obesity suits and battle each other for the title of World's Sassiest Grandma." Of course, that's not the logline for Big Momma's House 3. That's the plot of the probably forthcoming surefire hit, Big Momma & Madea: We Fat.
