Kevin James goes “Boom” at Sony

By Staff

Days after moving Kevin James’ “Zookeeper” to next summer, Columbia Pictures has made a deal for the stand-up comedian to appear in the action comedy “Here Comes the Boom.”

Like a number of previous James comedies, Adam Sandler will collaborate and produce through his Happy Madison production company. Word is that Salma Hayeck may also be on board.

Salma Hayek, who stars with James in this summer’s Sandler ensemble comedy “Grown Ups” is said to be circling the film’s female lead per Variety.

Film is expected to go into production this January and would mark James’ seventh prolific Sony project starting with his co-starring role in Sandler’s 2004 romantic comedy “50 First Dates.”

Mum’s the word in terms of “Boom’s” storyline which was written by James and Rock Reuben who penned “Zookeeper” and the stand-up’s CBS sitcom “The King of Queens,” which Sony also produced.

Overall, James has racked up $446 million at the domestic box office from his films.
