The director for Cedar Rapids wants to make Adam Sandler obese and get a nurse to fall in love with him

01.28.2011

In JACK & JILL, Adam Sandler will grace the screen in skirts and high heels to play a woman. Now Miguel Arteta, director of CEDAR RAPIDS wants Sandler to throw on a fat suit. A really big fat suit...

During an interview with First Showing, Arteta mentions that he is interested in doing a project called FAT MAN with Sandler. Apparently Sandler is currently circling the idea. This is what Arteta told the site:

"I'd love to do a movie with Adam Sandler that... someone said he was flirting with? It's called Fat Man. I don't know if you've heard about this? One of the main writers of The Simpsons wrote the script and it's amazing. He would play an 800lbs. guy who has a love affair between him and his nurse. And he's naked for the first half of the film... and it's very touching... and it's very funny."

So, I hope he gets the gumption to do it, and maybe I get a crack at that, that would be amazing. Certainly, it would be not a movie you would forget anytime soon... and [it's] beautifully written. I don't know if that's meant to get out on the internet..."

In addition to this, another site called The Playlist did some research and found out that this project is about seven years old. Back in 2003, in an article for Variety the same project is mentioned. They give this synopsis, "He's a bright but bitter and bed-ridden guy whose infatuation with the nurse prompts him to drop weight. As he sheds the pounds, the man faces a king-sized dilemma: What if she doesn't fall in love with him?" Well, maybe they'll get around to making it this time.

Extra Tidbit: Sandler discovers that he has juicy titties.

It's AWESOME-O at his best...

Okay, how about this: Adam Sandler is like in love with some girl. But it turns out that the girl is actually a golden retriever or something. Or how about this: Adam Sandler inherits like, a billion dollars, but first he has to become a boxer or something.

Miguel Arteta is actually pretty good.

His TV work is worth a second look, and he did Chuck & Buck, and The Good Girl (which is fantastic IMO). If he gets involved, this could actually turn out to be something worthwile. A CURRENT Simpsons writer and the never-funny-anymore Adam Sandler as the lead makes me a bit pessimistic over this though. Having said that, Sandler does seem to shine more in quirky/dramady roles. Guess I'll just have to wait and see on this.

This could work, though nothing against Sadler, I'd like to see someone more capable of handling it if the script is that good. It's from a Simpsons writer? Wonder if he's gonna wash himself with that rag on a stick.....heh...

wait

hes 800lbs..loses weight..but has a dilemma, what if the girl doesnt fall in love with him?..so generally losing the weight isnt a good idea, only if its for the love of a woman?..sounds idiotic..so that means sandler must be signing on the dotted line as i type..

Nope

Has there ever been a movie where the actor wears a fat suit (for most of the movie) that was good. NO FAT SUITS
