Faizon Love, Emily Rios, Portia Doubleday and Michelle Ang have signed to co-star in 20th Century Fox’s Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son. They join Martin Lawrence, Brandon T. Jackson and Jessica Lucas in the third installment of the “Big Momma’s House” franchise.
In the new film, Big Momma (Lawrence) and Charmaine (Jackson) go undercover at an all-girls performing-arts school to unmask a murderer. Love will play Kurtis Kool, a school security guard and former Run-D.M.C. roadie who becomes smitten with Big Momma. Rios, Doubleday and Ang will play students at the school who befriend Jackson’s character.
Big Momma’s House 2 director John Whitesell is helming from a script by Matthew Fogel and Randi Mayem Singer.
Shooting will start this month in Atlanta at the private, all-girls Agnes Scott College.
