Adam Sandler to join I Hate You Dad?

January 14th, 2011

Adam Sandler is in talks to star in new comedy 'I Hate You Dad'.

The Hollywood funnyman is set to take on the role of a father who moves in with his son the day before his wedding and takes an instant dislike to the bride-to-be.

'Saturday Night Live' performer Andy Samberg is being lined up to take on the role of Adam's son despite being only twelve years his junior in real life.

The project - which is being produced by Adam's Happy Madison production company for Columbia Pictures - is currently in development and doesn't have a director attached.

Adam's next movie 'Just Go With It' co-stars Jennifer Aniston and Nicole Kidman and he has a number of movies in development including 'Zookeeper' and 'Jack and Jill', which will see the actor play a twin brother and sister.

Andy has previously taken on supporting roles in 'Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist' and 'I Love You, Man' and will next be seen on the big screen in 'Friends with Benefits' with Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis.
