Entertainment Movies Ready for Royalty: Anne Hathaway and Director Garry Marshall Plan to Make 'Princess Diaries 3' The Mother's Day director reveals he and star Anne Hathaway have plans for a third installment of the Princess Diaries franchise By Kara Warner Updated on December 1, 2020 10:29 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Trending Videos Photo: Walt Disney Pictures We’re getting another Princess Diaries movie, folks. Never mind the dream-crushing reports to the contrary, hope is alive for a third installment of the successful franchise, thanks to director Garry Marshall and star Anne Hathaway. “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.” No matter! The last time a fan asked Pine about returning to the character, he seemed open to the idea, a fact we point out to Marshall. “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.
