Adam Sandler is planning a new comedy western at Paramount entitled Ridiculous 6. The film was originally being setup through Sony, but was moved due to financial issues.
Plot details have not been confirmed, but the comedian will be writing the screenplay with Tim Herlihy. He is also starring and producing through his Happy Madison production company. The two have worked together in the past on numerous project including Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, The Wedding Singer, The Waterboy, Little Nicky and Mr. Deeds.
The title insinuates that it might be a comedic look at John Sturges' The Magnificent Seven, which starred Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen and Charles Bronson as part of a group of gunfighters tasked with protecting a Mexican town.
Production is expected to begin in April 2013 with a possible spring break 2014 release.
