With the mind-boggling production of the first two films of Grown Ups, it’s no wonder that it was a laugh galore! But the million dollar question is – will the third film ever hit the screens? Will we get to see more of Adam Sandler’s goofy comedy and terrific punchlines? Could there be more in store for the fans? Whether or not Grown Ups 3 will materialise, let’s get the hang of the situation!
Grown ups is an American comedy movie that aired back in 2010. It’s written by Adam Sandler and Fred Wolf – and produced by Chris Rock, David Spade, Rob Schneider, Maria Bello, Salma Hayek, Maya Rudolph, and Sandler. The film revolves around five BFFs who won their middle school basketball championship – and reunite on the 4th of July (after three decades) when they learn about the sudden demise of their basketball coach.
Though fans went haywire over the movie, it didn’t quite receive admiration from the critics. The movie was derided for its lack of self-awareness, predictability, poor jokes, and immaturity. However, it was a huge box office success! The movie grossed up to US$271.4 million, rendering it Sandler’s highest-grossing movie to date.
Grown Ups 3 Release Date: When Will It Premiere?
Grown Ups sequel aired in 2013 – after 3 years the first movie was released. Well, it goes without saying that if a comedy movie has to launch a sequel, it’s mostly released shortly after the first. However, with the Grown Ups film series, it’s been (literally) eight years (after the release of the second film) and still we haven’t received the threequel. By the sound of it, it does seem like we won’t get Grown Ups 3. Or who knows? We might.
Adam Sandler, the Scriptwriter and Producer of the movie appeared on “The Howard Stern Show” after his staggering performance in the critically acclaimed “Uncut Gems”. He joked that if he doesn’t get an Oscar nomination for his movie, he’s going to make a real bad one the next time. “If I don’t get it, I’m going to f***ing come back and do one again that is so bad on purpose just to make you all pay. That’s how I get them.”
While it can probably be just one of Sandler’s displays of humour, it does leave some hope for “Grown Ups 3”. Maybe? Maybe not? We really don’t know! The movie hasn’t been talked about much – and there clearly haven’t been any official announcements regarding the production of Grown Ups 3.
Rumours have it that there is a script. Wouldn’t it be a dream come true if the script was actually revitalised? Although it does seem a tad improbable, we might get another movie, right? If everything goes well, we can expect Grown Ups 3 around 2024 or later. Stay tuned for more updates!
Grown Ups 3 Cast: What Potential Faces Can Be In It?
Since there have been no official updates on the release of the third film, we can’t really say anything. However, the previous two films starred some of the most potential faces, essentially Kevin James as Eric, Rob Schneider as Rob, Chris Rock as Kurt, and David Spade as Marcus. The movie also stars Maria Bello as Sally, Salma Hayek as Roxanne, Jake Goldberg, and Cameron Boyce. Apart from these, Joyce Van Patten as Gloria and Maya Rudolph as Deanne were also a part of the star cast.
In the second movie, the cast reprised their roles – and except for a few new faces, there wasn’t much change. We can expect a similar situation with Grown Ups 3. Maybe the cast will reprise their roles again as they did in the past 2 films. We’re still awaiting more confirmation. However, Salma Hayek and Maria Bello did say in an interview that there have been discussions about producing the third movie. “There have been talks about making one”, said the cast members.
