Zach Braff said he dreamt he "married Gabrielle Union" and now that dream is coming true as he is set to star in a remake of Cheaper By The Dozen.

The first version of the film about a mother and father struggling to raise 12 children appeared in 1950 and a 2003 remake starred Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt, who returned for a sequel two years later.

Disney's remake will see Scrubs star Braff, 45, and Bring It On actress Union, 48, star as the parents in a new version of the classic comedy. 

Gabrielle Union 

Braff, who is in a relationship with British actress Florence Pugh, said: "I dreamt I married Gabrielle Union and had 12 kids. It came true!!!"

He added: "I’m sooooo excited."

The film will be written by Black-ish creator Kenya Barris.

The first Cheaper By The Dozen is based on an autobiographical book about growing up in a large family.

Last year, stars of the 2003 comedy - including Hilary Duff - teamed up to re-enact some of the film’s most memorable moments to raise money for charity amid the pandemic.
