“I was with Anne Hathaway a couple weeks ago, it looks like we want to do Princess Diaries 3 in Manhattan,” Marshall tells PEOPLE. “Anne Hathaway is very pregnant, so we have to wait until she has the baby and then I think we’re going to do it.”
There’s no telling when this fairy tale might come to fruition, especially since the very pregnant Hathaway will likely take a maternity leave of sorts when her baby arrives, but our fingers are crossed the film gets officially greenlit.
Might there be a role in there for Star Trek and Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement star Chris Pine?
“Maybe,” Marshall says. “He’s quite big now, you know.”
“Yes, well Chris Pine likes me, you know why? Because his father is in Mother’s Day!” Marshall reveals, name-checking his upcoming, star-studded movie starring Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston and Kate Hudson, among others.
“His father I know, I’ve seen him in plays,'” Marshall adds. “Chris Pine and my kids went to similar schools, so I knew him as a kid. [Pine’s father] is quite good, he plays a strange, funny Texan. He and Margo Martingale are husband and wife.”
Mother’s Day hits theaters April 29.
