The complaint says that the saw "was not properly fitted with safety components such as saw stops and safety guards." Because Houpert's right hand is his dominant hand, he says that the on-set injury has led to him losing work and therefore income. He is seeking $1 million in damages.
The Grown Ups star will team with director Chris Columbus for Hello Ghost, an American remake of a Korean supernatural comedy that will be set up at Universal. The pitch sounds an awful lot like A Christmas Carol, with Sandler set to play a suicidal man whoís visited by four ghosts who wonít leave him alone until he achieves some form of inner peace.
The romantic comedy pairing of Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore has a solid history of success at the box office, with both 1998's The Wedding Singer and 2004's 50 First Dates considered big hits in theaters, but will the idea of their third time working together be enough for them to outshine a movie about apes taking over the Earth?
The story follows a man and a woman who have a horrible first date and then find themselves stuck together at a resort with their respective children from previous marriages. Given the two stars' chemistry in The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates, however, presumably they eventually learn to fall in love with each other.
Everyone in this cast was a part of a legitimately enjoyable career at one point or another, yet somehow kismet took a day off and this full-length trailer for Grown Ups 2 exists.
It is the rare exception when an Adam Sandler comedy will draw more laughs than groans that get angrier by the minute. And while there is almost never anything redeeming about any of the characters he plays, itís somehow the romantic stories that become his most memorable films. Well, of any that donít feature giant penguins or fist fights with Bob Barker
Adam Sandler has a new project in the pipeline, and this one might not be the Razzie bait weíre used to, since it falls into the romantic comedy genre where he isnít judged quite as harshly by critics and fans.
Guardians is an unconventional comic-book property, and Marvel is approaching it with a little more freewheeling daring-do than they have, say, a traditional Iron Man or Thor movie. Hiring Super director James Gunn, for instance, was a bold step in a fresh direction, which is why Iím keeping a very open mind to the possibility of Sandler in a Marvel movie.
This time out, Sandler and his wife (played by Salma Hayek, of course) move the family back to Sandlerís home town, where the clan learns some valuable life lessons from the children on the last day of school. And David Spade likely gets raped by a farm animal, or some such hilarity.
Itís unclear why Sandler isnít requesting Sony seek a partner for this comedy. The comedian has had a very profitable relationship with the studio over the years. And while Thatís My Boy might have been his first high-profile financial misstep in years (heck, even Jack and Jill made an inexplicable $74M), the Sandler brand is strong.
On its surface the source material for Happy Madison's next film sounds more like something Michael Bay would tackle than Adam Sandler. Two wisecracking cops chase a getaway van loaded with stolen goods through the streets of a bustling city, tearing through crowds of protesters, weaving through traffic, dodging debris, making stomach-turning jumps, and ripping through massive explosions...
Variety says Gordon was hired thanks to his knowledge about video games from King of Kong, but don't expect an insightful look at how video game characters would live in the real world (like, say, Disney's upcoming Wreck-It Ralph). Dowling has apparently been brought in to give the movie a wider scope
Producer Michelle Murdocca was on hand to introduce us to Genndy Tartakovsky, the creator of the TV shows Dexterís Laboratory, Sym-Bionic Titan and Samurai Jack, and now the director of Hotel Transylvania. Tartakovsky showed off his star-studded voice cast
Adam Sandler has already caused more destruction to the cinematic landscape than most people, thanks to Jack & Jill and Grown Ups and the upcoming That's My Boy, but Hasbro is not far behind him. Yes, they're responsible for many of the toys you loved in your childhood, but also the terrible adaptations of them
There's been some major change-ups to Will Ferrell's upcoming sports-comedy Three Mississippi, which have forced the producers to scramble for a new director as well as new co-star for the Anchorman funnyman. Last year Ferrell's good friend and frequent collaborator Adam McKay
