Hey guys, Jana here,
Classic TV Series turning into movies is something a lot of us are sooooo sick of. They are either really great, or really awful – not much of an in between point. I can usually pinpoint where I’ll land on that scale depending on the property in question. This time, it’s ‘Three’s Company‘. Yeah, the song that’s stuck in your head has been on a permanent loop in my head for the last 10 hours, and if it’s not in your head, yet, let me help…”Come and knock on our door.”
New Line is the company trying to take the wacky series that gave us some of the greatest of Don Knotts on-screen moments. He co-starred in the series with the late John Ritter, Joyce DeWitt and Suzanne Somers.
Looks like the writing team of Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein (‘The Vow‘) will be writing the script that will bring the kookiest set of roommates to the big screen. It’s incredibly early in the project to have too many things nailed down for sure, but we do know what Robert Cort (‘Runaway Bride‘) and Don Taffner Jr. are on board to produce.
For those of you wondering if the setting of the movie would be updated to current times or not, we do know that it’s still going to be set in the 1970s. Granted the time frame is necessary because the premise of the show, two girls (DeWitt, Somers) in need of a third roommate ask Jack Tripper (Ritter) to move into their apartment to share expenses. However in the 1970’s, a man living with two girls, with no romantic entanglements would be incredibly taboo, so he has to act gay.
Will it happen? Will it not? We don’t have any concrete facts, it may not even pan out. Regardless, I bet that theme song is still stuck in your head, isn’t it?
