Katie Holmes (Batman Begins, The Romantics) and Al Pacino are in talks to join Adam Sandler‘s latest shitty romantic comedy feature, Jack and Jill. The storyline follows Jack, a family man, who must deal with his twin sister Jill, who visits for Thanksgiving and won’t leave.
Steven Koren (Evan Almighty, Click) wrote the screenplay, and Sandler comedy director Dennis Dugan (Grown Ups, You Don’t Mess with the Zohan, The Benchwarmers) is directing. Sandler will be playing both the titular Jack and his twin sister Jill. According to THR, Holmes will play Sandler’s wife, while Pacino will play himself. An actor making a cameo as himself in a Sandler comedy…. but, that would be too obvious. This doesn’t sound good. And yes, I chose the above photo of Holmes with a handfull of money specifically because this sounds nothing more than a paycheck film.
