Cameron Diaz
Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, and Eddie Murphy have been approached to reprise their respective roles in the franchise more than 20 years after the first film.
"I also want to play John Candy," Barrymore told longtime co-star Adam Sandler on her talk show.
The beloved 2006 rom-com will not be returning to the big screen anytime soon.
"In my heart, she's always right here," Liu said of her longtime collaborator.
"This is really unsafe," Diaz remembered thinking after being stopped by officials in Morocco.
Diaz's first role since 2014 will be co-written and directed by Seth Gordon of "Horrible Bosses" fame.
"The 1990s, the early aughts, there was still heavy, heavy misogyny. Just the level of exploitation of powers, it just laid on the entire industry."
Robert Rodriguez wanted to cast Hayek, but the studio forced her to go through the audition process.
What made Diaz exceptional as a comedic lead was her generosity as a performer, not just to the material but to her fellow actors, especially when those other performers were other women.
