Adam Sandler Takes His Next Comedy Away From Sony
It’s unclear why Sandler isn’t requesting Sony seek a partner for this comedy. The comedian has had a very profitable relationship with the studio over the years. And while That’s 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.

Adam Sandler To Produce Bad Toys II
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...

King Of Kong's Seth Gordon Could Direct Adam Sandler's Pixels
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

Adam Sandler And Hasbro Making An Animated Tonka Trucks Movie
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

Adam Sandler May Co-Star With Will Ferrell In Three Mississippi
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

Happy Madison Options Heroes For My Son
As a drama, Heroes For My Son would be a change of pace for the production company, yet the story we can glean from these details seems to fit some of Sandler's favorite themes. If he's to star, we can presume there is a 40-something schlub at the center of the story, and more than likely a father struggling to be the kind of parental guidance he feels his kid deserves. This is an old chestnut that Sandler's explored several times before...

Paramount Looks To Adam Sandler's Happy Madison To Remake Summer School
After trying for several years to remake Summer School, Paramount may have finally found the right producers for the job. The property has been in and out of development since 2005, with more than a few versions falling by the wayside but now the studio is in negotiations for Adam Sandler's Happy Madison to finally bring it to the big-screen. Well, for the second time.

Adam Sandler Sweeps The Razzies With The Abysmal Jack & Jill
Jill became “the first film in the 32-year history of the Razzies to ‘win’ every single tacky trophy handed out at the annual Oscar spoof.” By the end of the evening, Jill had earned: Worst Picture; Worst Actor; Worst Actress (which the Razzies claim is an unprecedented event); Worst Supporting Actor -- for Al Pacino, for chrissakes; Worst Supporting Actress (for David Spade); Worst Director (for Dennis Dugan) and more.

Project X Star In Talks For Grown Ups 2
The young stars of the frantic found footage flick Project X have been launched. Already Thomas Mann has been offered roles in the buzzed about supernatural romance Beautiful Creatures as well as the Will Ferrell-produced coming-of-age comedy King Dork. And now, Mann's Project X co-star Oliver Cooper has entered into negotiations for a major role on the feature of another SNL alum.

Hotel Transylvania Trailer Reveals Where Monsters Rest In Peace
Now, some—myself included—have sneered at the voice cast, peopled as it is with such stale comedic talent as Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, David Spade, Kevin James and Fran Drescher. Still, there was hope that Hotel Transylvania's director, animation master Genndy Tartakovsky, who created such imaginative cartoons as Samurai Jack and Dexter's Labortatory, would manifest something incredible from the hokey premise and mediocre cast.

Adam Sandler Continues His Reign Of Terror In That's My Boy Trailer
In theory I like the idea of Sandler and Samberg coming together as father and son, two generations of SNL butting heads. But Samberg is such a non-presence in this trailer, playing the general stuck-up guy who Sandler has to pull out of his rut-- it's an unfunny role Sandler himself played in Jack and Jill

Adam Sandler Shatters All-Time Record For Razzie Nominations
Thanks to his participation in Just Go With It, Jack & Jill and Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star (which he helped produce), Sandler scored 11 Razzie nominations including Worst Picture and Worst Actor. The grand total more than doubles Eddie Murphy’s previous record for most Razzie noms in a single year. (The comedian earned 5 in 2007, the year he released Norbit.)

Hotel Transylvania Concept Art Reveals Cee-Lo As A Mummy
Hotel Transylvania boasts a number of noteworthy celebrities, including Kevin James as Frankenstein's monster, David Spade as an invisible—and surely snarky—man, David Koechner (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy) as Quasimodo, and rapper Cee-Lo as Murray the Mummy. Now to capitalize on Cee-Lo's appearance at the audacious Super Bowl half time show, Sony Picture Animation has revealed a look at his Mummy on their Facebook fansite...

Adam Sandler To Write The Candyland Movie As The Project Moves To Sony
Last summer the relationship between Universal and Hasbro began to deteriorate. While the studio did produce an action movie directed by Peter Berg based on the board game Battleship (due out this summer), they also dropped a number of projects, including the Ouija Board movie and a Clue remake (not to mention that they almost killed the Battleship movie too).
