Attention My Big Fat Greek Wedding fans: The beloved cast is reuniting for a third film! Nia Vardalos, who wrote and starred in My Big Fat Greek Wedding and My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, will add directing duties to her plate for the third film.

"The entire cast is invited back," Vardalos revealed, but no one has been confirmed yet. Here, everything we know so far about My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3:

The titular wedding will be Toula and Ian’s daughter Paris.

According to Deadline, the wedding will focus on Toula (Vardalos) and Ian's (John Corbett) daughter Paris's wedding. Paris is portrayed by Elena Kampouris, and in the second film, she asked Bennett (Alex Wolff) to the prom, where they shared their first kiss. The film ends with her family dropping her off at New York university to start college. There's no details yet on her love interest in the third film.

Production began in Athens, Greece in June 2022.

Vardalos confirmed the news in a video posted to her Instagram, which she captioned, "Greece baby. Greece!" She said she was filming in a hotel near the Plaka, a neighborhood in Athens near the Acropolis.

"Thank you so much for the lovely messages," she added.

The film will be dedicated to Michael Constantine.

Constantine, who played Toula's father Kostas "Gus" Portokalos passed away in August 2021 at age 94.

According to a post Vardalos wrote on her Instagram, Constantine knew he wouldn't part of the third film. "He had told me he wouldn’t be able to join us for the third film and his wish was that we go on. I wrote the screenplay to reflect Michael’s decision and will always treasure his last messages to me, hoping we were filming soon," she explained. "We miss you Michael, thank you for bringing my words to life with such passion and accuracy, you will always be with us."

"He was a beloved friend and a brilliant actor/writer who taught me so much about my craft and LIFE," Lainie Kazan, who portrayed Gus's wife Maria Portokalos, wrote on Facebook after his death. "We shared a make-believe marriage for over 20 years in the movies My Big Fat Greek Wedding 1 and 2 and soon-to-be 3. What a beautiful relationship. Michael you will be missed. Heaven has gained another angel."
