Estefan joins previously announced stars Andy Garcia and Adria Arjona. The new film is directed by Gaz Alazraki.

"A resounding YES was my answer to the invitation to join my good friend, the incredibly talented Andy Garcia, for this new and wonderfully warm and funny incarnation of the classic, Father of the Bride!" Estefan said in a statement to Deadline.

The remake is based on the 1991 film Father of the Bride, starring Steve Martin, Diane Keaton and Kimberly Williams, and the 1950 movie starring Spencer Tracy, Joan Bennett and Elizabeth Taylor.

The new version is written by Matt Lopez and will center on a Cuban American family. Garcia will play a father coming to terms with his daughter's (Arjona) wedding. Estefan will portray Garcia's character's wife.

Dede Garner and Jeremy Kleiner will produce for Plan B Entertainment, with Garcia as executive producer.
