Steve Martin - Steve Martin denies Father of the Bride III rumours

Steve Martin has denied reports he is to star in a third 'Father of the Bride' film.

The 68-year-old actor played businessman George Banks in 1991 hit comedy 'Father of the Bride' and in the 1995 sequel 'Father of the Bride II', but he's now quashed rumours that he's been contacted about returning for a third instalment alongside Diane Keaton as his wife Nina.

He wrote on Twitter: ''So excited to read I'm doing Father of the Bride 3 since I haven't seen a script or been offered the role!''

Recent reports stated that the third film would be centred around the couple's son Matty, who was originally played by Kieran Culkin, when he reveals he's planning to get married to the son of a US Navy Seal, leaving Martin's character ''thunderstruck and speechless''.

However, despite claiming that he hasn't been contacted about the possibility of reprising his role, Martin has not disputed the fact that a third 'Father of the Bride' movie could be being made.

The films' original director and co-writer Charles Shyer was also said to have signed up to develop the sequel.

Martin's 'Father of the Bride' was based on the 1950 movie of the same name while 'Father of the Bride II' was loosely based on 1951 flick 'Father's Little Dividend'.
