A third sequel to the Martin Lawrence film franchise “Big Momma’s House” will begin filming in Atlanta this month with a host of new faces, including Faizon Love, Brandon T. Jackson, Jessica Lucas, Emily Rios, Portia Doubleday and Michelle Ang.
In the new film, titled “Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son,” FBI agents-in-drag (Lawrence and Jackson) go undercover as Big Momma and Charmaine respectively 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.
Directed by John Whitesell (“Big Momma’s House 2″), the film will shoot at the private, all-girls Agnes Scott College in Atlanta.
Love next appears in the comedy “Life as We Know It,” which hits theaters in December. Rios next appears in the Taylor Hackford-directed drama “Love Ranch.” Doubleday recently co-starred in “Youth in Revolt.” Ang next will appear in the Jodie Foster-directed drama “The Beaver.”
During an appearence on “Ellen” Thursday, Lawrence revealed that after “Big Mommas,” he and Jamie Foxx will begin shooting a film featuring their popular television characters Sheneneh and Wanda.
