Adam Sandler Developing ‘Ridiculous 6’

Adam Sandler developing Ridiculous 6Adam 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.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Oh nah man, I remembered the day, and I looked at my @mentions, then got busy and the notification was gone, so i forgot all about them.

    As for Avengers, yes, I have not seen Transformers 3, but like you say, I cannot see what is so damn great. It has horrible jokes and even horrible-er timing on those jokes.

      @crypt -- Ah, all right. I strongly disliked that movie. It's one of the most overrated movies I have ever seen, and I don't use the term "overrated" lightly. I can't - for the life of me - discern what was so great about that mess of an action film. It made "Transformers: Dark of The Moon" seem subtle.

      No problem, man. I'm just glad you acknowledged them; I thought you were deliberately dodging me.

        @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Well it looks like I either have not seen most of the films you rated, or are indifferent about! Haha but I must agree 100000% with your rating of The Avengers- Not that great of a movie. At all. (Dude hecka sorry I did not notice all these @mentions from you until now).

            @crypt -- And/or agreements in film faults. You should take a look at my ratings, and see if we're in the same boat, or whatnot.

                @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Ah yeah, well I think it's just the same general taste in movies (seemingly so far). See, if some one is into movies, I generally get along with them. Haha

                  @crypt -- The lack of age difference might be one of the reasons, but I know a couple of users on here that are my exact age, and we have very little in common.

                        @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Oh really? That actually surprises me. But I guess some people still think he's what he use to be (which in my opinion was never too much.)
