‘Princess Diaries 3’ Is Not Currently in Development

Princess Diaries 3 Not Happening, According to Sources

It looks like fans of Disney’s “Princess Diaries” series will have to wait a little longer for that third installment.

Following a week of rumors that another sequel was on the way, sources close to the situation have confirmed that Disney is not developing a third “Princess Diaries.”

Rumblings of a third pic began at the end of last week when the Tracking Board reported a sequel was in development and continued after “Princess Diaries” actress Heather Matarazzo tweeted that good news was on the way for fans of the franchise.

A source close to the project said a conversation had occurred about a possible sequel but nothing came from that meeting. As of now no screenwriter is attached, and the film is not being developed by the studio. Sources close to Hathaway also confirmed that there is no script and that the actress is not attached to any sequel at this time.

That doesn’t mean a third installment will never happen, especially since the franchise still has a loyal fanbase and Hathaway has become even more of a star since “The Princess Diaries 2.” Until the studio is happy with a story that does the series justice, fans will have to wait a little longer for a threequel.

The original pic overperformed at the box office, bringing in $165 million worldwide on a $26 million budget. The sequel brought in $95 million at the domestic box office.

    It would be absurd to say that Rudolf Nureyev lived, or danced, in anyone’s shadow.

    The hills are alive (or rather, undead), with the sound of music (also mastication and the moaning of zombies) in Kelly Copper and Pavol Liska’s experimental, dialogue-free, home-movie-style riff on Elfriede Jelinek’s “Die Kinder Der Toten” (The Children of the Dead). A seminal text in Jelinek’s native Austria, the 1995 book has never been translated [...]

    Film Review: 'Idol'

    How many twists can a plot undergo before it snaps? This, more than any of the many political, moral and personal conundrums that snake through “Idol,” seems to be the question writer-director Lee Su-jin is most interested in posing with his extravagantly incomprehensible sophomore feature. A seedy political thriller by way of grisly revenge movie [...]

    Film Review: 'The Last to See Them'

    Truman Capote’s “In Cold Blood” stretches long as a late-evening shadow over Italian director Sara Summa’s feature debut “The Last to See Them.” The Italian title, “Gli Ultimi Viderli Vivere” which translates literally to “The Last to See Them Alive,” is also the heading of the opening chapter of Capote’s book. The setting is, similarly, [...]

    Events leading to the 1947 Partition of India serve as the forebodingly serious backdrop for the exhaustingly overextended razzmatazz of “Kalank,” writer-director Abhishek Varman’s lavish but ponderous Bollywood extravaganza, which opened in the U.S. on more than 300 screens the same day as its Indian release. Despite the preponderance of sets and costumes spectacular enough [...]
