Saturday Night Live alums Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, David Spade, and Rob Schneider are teaming up for an as-yet untitled comedy for Columbia Pictures. Kevin James, fresh off the unexpected box-office success of last month's Paul Blart: Mall Cop, will also star.
Dennis Dugan, who directed Sandler and Schneider in You Don't Mess with the Zohan and who also directed Sandler and James in I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, will helm the film, which is expected to shoot in the summer.
Sandler's Happy Madison company will produce the project. Sandler wrote the screenplay, which is about five best friends from high school who reunite 30 years later over July 4th weekend. This is the first time all five funnymen, who have collaborated in the past in various ways, have worked together on a single film.
