Briefly: The man once high in the running to be crowned king of all manchildren has truly grown up: he’ll be playing the father of a character played by a comic who inherited his mantle. Let’s clarify. Adam Sandler will play the father and Andy Samberg his son in a film called I Hate You Dad.
THR explains that the film is about “a father who moves in on the eve of his son’s wedding and promptly begins feuding with the bride-to-be.” There’s no director at this point; the script is being developed at Happy Madison. But wait, here’s where it gets good: the original draft of the script was by David Caspe, but was rewritten by David Wain and Ken Marino. Suddenly I’ve got to pay attention to this one. If I Hate You Dad goes forward we’ll give you all the info.
