The original film’s writer, Fred Wolf, is in negotiations to write the script with Adam Sandler potentially interested in reprising his role as one of five friends dealing with fatherhood.
A Grown Ups sequel would mark the first time that Sandler sequelized one of his own projects. If he does, indeed, decide to return, it would quite likely be alongside his four co-stars from the original, Kevin James, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider and David Spade.
The July 12th release date is currently unoccupied by any competition.
Sandler’s most recent film, Jack and Jill underperformed at the box office, grossing $88.7 million worldwide. That’s roughly a third of the $271 million that Grown Ups turned out last year, marking his most successful feature to date.
