Adam Sandler movie news round-up
The latest on Grown Ups 2, plus Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore are to team up for a third time...
Call us optimists, but we live in hope that Adam Sandler may eventually either go back to the days when he was taking on more challenging roles, or else recapture what brought him to popularity in the first place. Some of Sandler's earlier comedies continue to hold up well. Jack And Jill and That's My Boy are about as bad as they've got, though. We charted the man's slow decline here.
We've got news, then, on his next two projects here. Firstly, the first poster for Grown Ups 2 has appeared. Grown Ups is Sandler's most commercially successful film worldwide, and the sequel is with us this summer. Given that the first poster has been unleashed, we'd imagine that the first trailer isn't too far behind.
More promisingly, Sandler is to reunite with Drew Barrymore for a third time. Of their previous collaborations, 50 First Dates might have been a weaker, slightly nastier retread of Groundhog Day, but The Wedding Singer remains a strong, funny romantic comedy.
The new film will also be a romantic comedy, and it's thus far untitled. But The Wedding Singer director Frank Coraci has also been hired, and that might just be a step in the right direction too. More news as we get it...
