Sandler gets scary

Adam Sandler, not content to scare people solely through his comedies, has signed on to produce his first thriller. Titled SHORTCUT, the film will follow two brothers who believe they've found the perfect shortcut in their traffic congested town. After a few rides though, it becomes clear why they're the only ones driving on it. The film will mark the debut of a spinoff of Sandler popular Happy Madison production company titled Scary Madison. If you're wondering what the impetus was for Sandler to move into a new genre, it likely has something to do with the fact that the script was co-written by his older brother Scott. Nicholaus Goosen, who directed GRANDMA'S BOY for Happy Madison, will direct the thriller with Andrew Seeley, Shannon Woodward and Dave Franco starring. Filming is scheduled to begin next month. Sandler can be seen, starting today, in YOU DON'T MESS WITH THE ZOHAN; sure to scare the pants off of you.

Extra Tidbit: Ben Stiller also produced his first thriller earlier this year with THE RUINS.
