Andy Samberg & Adam Sandler in ANOTHER FILM - Hotel Transylvania

Adam Sandler Joins the cast of 3D animated movie

Adam Sandler is getting in on the vampire movie craze by voicing Dracula in new animated flick Hotel Transylvania.

Samurai Jack director Genndy Tartakovsky is at the helm of the 3D movie, which finds Dracula now the proprietor of ‘five-stake’ monster resort Hotel Transylvania.

Complications arise when an ordinary guest (voiced by Andy Samberg) arrives at the hotel and falls for Drac’s teenage daughter Mavis.

Transylvania essentially sounds like a kiddie version of Tim Burton’s currently-shooting Dark Shadows, which also revolves around a kooky house with hammer horror-style lead characters.

Other actors lending their voices to Tartakovsky’s movie include David Spade as Quasimodo, Steve Buscemi and Molly Shannon as married werewolves, Kevin James as Frankenstein and Cee Lo Green as Murray the Mummy.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Adam to create a comedic Dracula for a new generation,” says Michelle Raimo-Kouyate, president of production, Sony Pictures Animation.

“We have a unique story about that iconic character, starring a phenomenal cast directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, that re-imagines Transylvania and its legendary monsters in the way that only animation can.”


Special thanks to sjcsjc1 for the scoop!

With a cast like that, it sounds like Adam Sandler put it together... Kevin James, Andy Samberg, David Spade, Steve Buscemi... these are all folks Adam has cast in his movies multiple times (just once for Andy). And Molly Shannon fits right in with the SNL crowd.

This will be Andy's third animated film... (1) Space Chimps (2008). (2) Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (2009; also a Sony animation).

Ironically this will be Adam's second animated film, and the first was his strange attempt at making an animated version of his movies: Eight Crazy Nights.
