Sean Anders And John Morris In Talks To Direct Sandler-Samberg Vehicle I Hate You, Dad
After writing three straight comedies - Sex Drive, Hot Tub Time Machine, and She's Out of My League - one thing that has managed to elude writing duo Sean Anders and John Morris has been box office success. So how do you break that streak? Make a movie with the king of $100 million domestic grosses - Adam Sandler.
Variety reports that Anders and Morris are now in talks to direct I Hate You, Dad. The film stars Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg as a father and son who begin fighting when Sandler begins butting heads with Samberg's bride-to-be. While Anders directed Sex Drive, the movie, should they officially sign on, will be Morris' directorial debut. The original script was written by David Caspe before being turned over to David Wayne and Ken Marino for rewrites.
Though I personally enjoyed Hot Tub Time Machine quite a bit, one of the reasons why Morris and Anders have had trouble making a hit is that their movies haven't been particularly well received. At the very least we can be happy that Sandler won't be working with Dennis Dugan again - maybe that means he'll actually have to wake up and be funny for a change.
