Diane Keaton + '90s nostalgia + gay stuff = just take my money now
According to Hollywood blogger Nikki Finke, Disney and original star Steve Martin are ready to go on a third edition of the Father of the Bride franchise. With a twist:
The twist in this threequel is that Little Matty is now 29 and gay and getting married to a Navy SEAL’s son. Father of the bride George is "thunderstruck and speechless" and has problems with the whole gay thing. So wife Nina kicks him out of the house, according to the pitch which Disney loved.

I never pictured Steve Martin's "father" character as a social conservative, but okay. Throw in Diane Keaton returning as the mom, and I'm there opening weekend.
But why stop with just this one '90s franchise? Bill and Ted certainly have an excellent honeymoon adventure they could go on. Of course social conservatives would surely prefer a new edition of Speed in which America blows up if the same-sex marriage ban rate drops below a certain number. Or perhaps a new version of Clerks in which the titular characters refuse to sell a wedding cake to a gay couple
