Spring is coming, which means Adam Sandler needs another paid vacation with his friends, so he's deciding to make a new movie. No, it won't be that western "Ridiculous 6," probably because that would've required changing out of track pants, but instead he'll be gathering up a familiar team for a resort set rom-com. Hooray.

50 First Dates Drew Barrymore Adam Sandler

Spring is coming, which means Adam Sandler needs another paid vacation with his friends, so he's deciding to make a new movie. No, it won't be that western "Ridiculous 6," probably because that would've required changing out of track pants, but instead he'll be gathering up a familiar team for a resort set rom-com. Hooray. 

First reported as a potential co-star last month, Drew Barrymore is now confirmed to be joining Adam Sandler in an untitled comedy for Warner Bros. The pair will play Jim and Lauren, who somehow get stuck together at a resort after a blind date gone awry, with not only with each other, but with their kids from previous marriages! RUH-ROH. Frankly, it sort of sounds like a hybrid of "Just Go With It" and "Grown Ups," but America loves the Sandler formula and undoubtedly people will still flock to see the comic actor become more and more like Tim Allen. But just to ensure nothing will get fucked up, Sandler's ringer Frank Coraci (whose resume is almost entire made up of movies with the funnyman) will direct, having proven his track record with "The Wedding Singer" (okay, that one is legit) and "Click" (enough said).

Production will begin this spring, and we presume Rob Schneider and Nick Swardson are clearing their schedules....hahahaha who are we kidding, they probably had nothing planned anyway.... [Variety]
