New Line Cinema is in talks to pick up the film rights to classic late 1970s sitcom “Three’s Company”.
The original, a remake British sitcom “Man About the House,” starred John Ritter, Joyce De Witt and Suzanne Somers. The trio played roommates who pretended that Ritter’s character was gay in order to placate their hard-nosed landlord (Norman Fell).
“Valentine’s Day” and “The Vow” scribes Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein have been hired to pen the script for the film which will retain the 1970s setting of the original. Robert Cort will produce.
