According to IMDb News, Steve Martin requested a script rewrite for his upcoming Pink Panther sequel.

(Didn’t know one was in the works? I’d forgotten, too. Just a guess, but maybe the dragged-out production wasn’t much talked about because of the WTF? factor of adding a sequel to a bomb.)

But anyway, Martin, who’s always earned my mad love whether playing The Jerk, writing books, or hosting the Oscars, reportedly asked for a wedding to be written into The Pink Panther 2.

Because, he said, “every movie I’ve done that ends in a wedding or holding a baby has been a hit.”

I’ll tell you if it works, likely with a tiny tear running down my cheek, in the Feb. 6 issue.
