‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ third movie is finally in production

The actress said in a post that a third film in the franchise is now in production in Greece — and that she’s directing it. She cheekily dropped the latter news by sharing the Greek word for director.

She also thanked the eager fans for their “lovely messages” as they awaited news on the next installment.

“We’re filming in the beautiful Plaka of Athens,” she said.

No details on the film’s plot have been given, but the anticipation is real, people.

“My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2,” the sequel to the 2002 original film, was released in 2016.

In the movies, Vardalos starred alongside John Corbett, as well as Lainie Kazan and Michael Constantine.
