“Grown Ups” sequel in the works for Adam Sandler


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Here’s something you’ve never read before: Adam Sandler may be planning a sequel.

Remarkably, the comedian has avoided bringing any of his memorable caricatures back to the big screen after decades of pumping out marketable comedies. Tell me you wouldn’t pay to see a “Happy Gilmore,” “Waterboy” or “Billy Madison” sequel, possibly catching up with these buffoons years after their original stories to see where they are in life? Just not “Little Nicky,” please. Once was enough.

Instead, however, Sandler reportedly plans to do a sequel to “Grown Ups,” the massively successful comedy that teamed the “SNL” star up with his close friends and fellow comedians Chris Rock, Kevin James, David Spade and Rob Schneider.

Variety says Sony has begun negotiations with “Grown Ups” scribe Fred Wolf to pen a sequel. The key, of course, would be getting all five guys back, but if Sandler says yes, you can bet the rest will hop on the bandwagon.

A sequel seemed inevitable. “Grown Ups” grossed a whopping $271 million in 2010. But all of Sandler’s films break the bank, and he hasn’t had to go to the sequel well before.

Maybe he just had a lot of fun working on that film? Maybe they have a solid idea for a second film? Either way, we’ll keep you posted on the progress.
