‘Princess Diaries 3’ within the works — will Anne Hathaway return?


Shut up and listen — screenwriter Aadrita Mukerji is penning the script for a recent “Princess Diaries” movie, her rep confirmed Tuesday to The Post.

Sources told the Hollywood Reporter the third installment can be a continuation of the primary two movies quite than a reboot.

Mukerji has written for TV shows reminiscent of “Supergirl,” “Scorpion,” “Reacher” and “Quantum Leap.”

Producer Debra Martin Chase, who worked on the primary two movies, will reportedly return for the third. Melissa Stack, the author behind Cameron Diaz’s comedy “The Other Woman,” is executive producing.

But Anne Hathaway, whose profession blossomed after she played protagonist Mia Thermopolis in the primary two movies, has not received a deal to star within the third. Nonetheless, she told Entertainment Tonight in October she’s right down to complete the trilogy.

“I’d greater than entertain it, I’m pulling for it,” Hathaway told ET. “If there’s any technique to get Julie Andrews involved, I feel we might make it work. We might go to where she was and put a green screen behind her and just make it occur.”

Andrews, now 87, played Hathaway’s grandmother because the American teen learns she is heir to the throne of the European kingdom of Genovia.

The sources told THR that Hathaway would hopefully sign onto the Disney project if it makes it past the script phase.
