Disney+ is bringing a new family of 12 to the big screen.

Gabrielle Union is set to star in a "reimagining" of Cheaper by the Dozen from Black-ish producer Kenya Barris, it was announced on Thursday. The new comedy centers on a "blended family of 12, navigating a hectic home life and their family business."

The original Cheaper by the Dozen came out in 1950 and was based on the autobiographical book of the same name by Frank Bunker Gilbreth Jr. and Ernestine Gilbreth Carey. It was remade in 2003, starring Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt as the parents to 12 kids played by Tom Welling, Piper Perabo, Hilary Duff, and Alyson Stoner, among others. The remake spawned a sequel in 2005 titled Cheaper by the Dozen 2.

The new Cheaper by the Dozen is set to debut in 2022 on Disney+.
