Katie Holmes to amp her comedic-timing with Adam Sandler, Al Pacino

HollywoodNews.com: Katie Holmes has scored a female lead in the upcoming Adam Sandler-Al Pacino comedy “Jack and Jill.”

The Sony film will be directed by Dennis Dugan, who is behind many of Sandler’s biggest hits including this summer’s “Grown Ups” ($159 million) and the comedian’s biggest grosser, 1999’s “Big Daddy” ($163 million).

Sandler will play a twin brother and sister who are at odds with each other over Thanksgiving. Holmes will play the wife to one of Sandler’s characters. Pacino is set to appear as himself. The film goes before the cameras in October and will be produced by Sandler’s Happy Madison production label.

The Hollywood Reporter landed the news.

Holmes has a long list of films opening in the near future including “The Romantics,” a romantic drama; “The Son of No One,” a crime thriller and the Guillermo del Toro-production, “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark” which Miramax is bowing on Jan. 21.

In addition, Holmes will be seen in The History Channel’s miniseries “The Kennedys” as the famed first lady Jackie Kennedy Onassis.
