Andy Samberg and Adam Sandler - new film

Here's our second post on the new Samberg and Sandler film. It's still not official yet...

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg are in talks with Columbia Pictures to star in "I Hate You Dad," a comedy that Sandler's Happy Madison banner is producing.

The story centers on a father who moves in on the eve of his son's wedding and promptly begins feuding with the bride-to-be.

Sandler would play the dad, with Samberg as the son, even though less than 12 years separate the two in real life.

"Dad" is still in the development stages, and no director is on board, but the two actors are attached. The project is one of several in development at Happy Madison as possible starring vehicles for Sandler. Columbia initially picked up the project in August 2008.

Sandler is a "Saturday Night Live," alum while Samberg is among the current cast's stars. He has made ventures into film, starring in 2007's "Hot Rod" and playing supporting characters in such comedies as "I Love You, Man." Co-toplining a Sandler pic would give Samberg his biggest movie break yet.

Sandler, one of Hollywood's few reliable hitmakers, will next be seen in "Just Go With It," which opens February 11. Samberg will next be seen in "Friends With Benefits," Screen Gems' take on the sex-with-buddies genre that stars Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis.


Adam has interviewed Andy before for Interview magazine. I think they are compared because their names are similar (Andy has been called Adam a lot) and because they're both Jewish comedians from SNL (and their tastes in humor aren't that far off, even if they go about it differently).

Thanks to Anony for finding this one.
