Earlier this month, Adam Sandler made a surprising decision to make his first sequel — reuniting with David Spade, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider, and Kevin James for a follow-up to 2010's Grown Ups. Now Sandler will adapt his first board game.
Deadline reports that Sandler is attached to star in Candy Land, based on the Hasbro board game created in 1949. "Candy Land is more than just a game," said Columbia Pictures President Doug Belgrad in a statement.
It is a brand that children, parents and grandparents know and love. The world of Candy Land offers an extraordinary canvas upon which to create a fantastical, live-action family adventure film with a larger than life part for Adam. We are thrilled to partner with Hasbro and Happy Madison on this project. more about Candy Land >>
