Adam Sandler has signed on to develop and produce a feature-length adaptation of Bad Toys II, a popular short film that uses a combination of live-action and CGI animation elements.
Take a look at this adrenalin-speed-action-packed six-minute short film below (and don’t forget to wait until the end):
French animators, Daniel Brunet and Nicolas Douste, directed the short, an homage to Michael Bay‘s Bad Boys II. The story starts out with a car chase using toys on a living room floor that keeps escalating with explosions and car crashes. The big-screen version for Columbia Pictures will center on a grown man whose childhood imagination comes to life again while playing with his son’s toys. The man’s play becomes an homage to big-budget action spectacles.
Daniel Brunet and Nicolas Douste will executive produce this new adaptation and the search for screenwriter or director hasn’t been finished yet.
The short, Bad Toys II, comes to theaters in 2012 and stars Richard Darbois, Philippe Peythieu, Thierry Ragueneau.
