Anne Hathaway might be reprising the part of Mia Thermopolis in a Princess Diaries 3 movie, according to director Gary Marshall.

Princess Diaries 3?

It’s been 12 years since Hathaway has played the Genovian royal, but it looks as though the actress is still fond of the character that proved to be her breakout role. Marshall says that the Oscar-winner seems game to play Mia once again – as soon as she’s given birth to her first child with husband Adam Schulman. He also revealed that the third movie would take place in Manhattan, a change up from the first movie’s setting in San Francisco and the second’s in the made-up tiny European country of Genovia.

“I was with Anne Hathaway a couple weeks ago, it looks like we want to do Princess Diaries 3 in Manhattan,” Marshall told People in a recent interview. “Anne Hathaway is very pregnant, so we have to wait until she has the baby and then I think we’re going to do it.”

While it looks like a near certainty that Hathaway will be on board for the movie, Marshall is less certain about Chris Pine, who has found franchise success in Star Trek and now in the D.C. universe films as Wonder Woman’s love interest, Steve Trevor. Marshall thinks that he might have a little bit of pull with the actor, as he cast his father, stage actor Robert Pine, in his latest directorial effort, Mother’s Day.

“[Chris] is quite big now, you know. Chris Pine likes me, you know why? Because his father is in Mother’s Day! ” Marshall told People. “Chris Pine and my kids went to similar schools, so I knew him as a kid. [Pine’s father] is quite good, he plays a strange, funny Texan. He and [Margo Martindale] are husband and wife [in Mother’s Day].”

Pine starred in Princess Diaries 2 as Hathaway’s love interest. Other actors involved in the films include Julie Andrews, Hector Elizondo and Heather Matarazzo.
