Directed by Gail Lerner, Cheaper by the Dozen is an upcoming American family comedy film that is ready to be premiered soon. The film is the remake of Walter Lang’s 1950 film of the same name which starred Clifton Webb and Myrna Loy as the lead star cast.
A film with the same name was also released in 2003, which became a hit family drama and featured Steve Martin in the lead role. The upcoming remake is said to be a fresh take of that.
The project was inspired by the 1948 semi-autobiographical novel Cheaper by the Dozen, which was written by Frank Bunker Gilbreth Jr. and his sister Ernestine Gilbreth Carey.
The novel depicts the real story of the authors’ life and how they were brought up in a family of 12 children.
This novel was the best-selling book and also adapted into a feature film, and later the sequel of this 1948 film was also adopted as Belles on Their Toes, which was released in 1952.
The upcoming remake of the film will premier next month. Let’s have a look at the point mentioned below:
