Helming Duo Eye Sandler-Samberg Comedy I Hate You Dad

John Morris and Sean Anders According to Variety, Sean Anders and John Morris are in talks to co-direct the looming Adam Sandler’s medium I Hate You Dad. Sean Anders and John Morris, two of the strongest comedy writers in Hollywood, are exactly in talks with Columbia Pictures to set a comedy that Sandler’s Happy Madison banner is producing. Columbia initially picked up the project in August 2008 but was still in the development stages. It’s the directorial debut for Morris, while Anders previously helmed Sex Drive, which the duo also scribed. Besides, Anders and Morris wrote She’s Out of My League for Paramount and Hot Tub Time Machine for MGM. The duo most recently penned Mr. Popper’s Penguins for 20th Century Fox. Story focuses on a father who moves in on the eve of his son’s wedding and promptly begins arguing with the fiancée. Sandler would play the dad, with Samberg’s acting the son, even if less than 12 years separate the two in a real life. “Dad” was written by David Caspe with a rewrite by David Wain and Ken Marino. Sandler is a “Saturday Night Live” (SNL) former while Samberg is along with the current cast’s stars (Since 2005). He has attempted to move into films, starring in 2007’s Hot Rod and playing supporting roles in such comedies as I Love You, Man. Co-starring a Sandler’s flick would give Samberg his biggest movie break thus far. Sandler, one of Hollywood’s few trustworthy hit makers’ movies, was recently seen in Just Go With It. And Samberg, will next be seen in Friends With Benefits,  the sex-with-buddies rom-com  that features Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis, set for July 22, 2011 release. Do you think Anders and Morris are a good pair for I Hate You Dad?
