Sandler Tells Russell Bedtime Stories


Keri Russell has landed the female lead opposite Adam Sandler in Disney’s Bedtime Stories, reports Variety.

In the family-adventure, Russell will play a potential love interest for Sandler’s character, a harried real estate developer whose life is suddenly turned upside down when the lavish bedtime stories he tells his niece and nephew become real.

Adam Shankman (Hairspray) is directing the movie, written by Matt Lopez, that’s set to start filming in February, and will get a holiday 2008 release under the Walt Disney Pictures banner.

“Stories” is being produced by Andrew Gunn’s Gunn Films, along with Sandler and producing partner Jack Giarraputo through their Happy Madison Productions.

Shankman, Jennifer Gibgot and Ann Marie Sanderlin will executive produce.
