Sandler and Samberg to Star in I Hate You Dad


The Hollywood Reporter says that Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg are in talks to star in I Hate You Dad, a comedy at Columbia Pictures that Sandler’s Happy Madison banner is producing.

According to the trade, 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.”

The film was written by David Caspe with a rewrite by David Wain and Ken Marino.

A director is not attached yet. Heather Parry is overseeing for Happy Madison, while Sam Dickerman and Adam Milano are shepherding for Columbia.
