Adam Sandler playing Andy Samberg’s “Dad” in new comedy?

By Sean O’Connell Critics weren’t kind to William Shatner’s “$h*! My Dad Said,” a television show based on a popular Twitter feed, but the program caught on with a larger audience. The ratings have settled into a groove reflecting 10.6 and 10.9 million weekly viewers, and the show won Favorite New TV Comedy at the People’s Choice Awards last week.

So it makes sense that comedians would latch on to similar dad-themed entertainment to lure the masses.

Take Adam Sandler, who is negotiating with Columbia Pictures to star in “I Hate You Dad” with “Saturday Night Live” star Andy Samberg. Sandler’s Happy Madison banner would produce the comedy, which is about a father who moves in with his son on the eve of his kid’s wedding and begins feuding with the bride to be, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Here’s the twist: Sandler would play the father, while Samberg would play the son! Try and ignore the fact that they are only 12 years apart in age.

THR says “Dad” is “one of several in development” at Happy Madison, noting that Sandler could go in several different directions.

Before that, he’ll be busy promoting “Just Go With It,” his comedy with Jennifer Aniston and the smoking hot Brooklyn Decker. It will be in theaters on Feb. 11.
