Collateral: According to the Hollywood Reporter, Adam Sandler, who stepped out of his usual comedic mold to star in Paul Thomas Anderson's Punch Drunk Love last year, appears to be eyeing another left turn in his choice of characters.

On Wednesday night, Sandler was scheduled to meet with filmmaker Michael Mann to discuss the possibility of starring opposite Tom Cruise in the director's Collateral for DreamWorks.

If Adam Sandler joins the project, he would play Max, A New York cab driver who figures out that the fare (Tom Cruise) he's been driving around all day is a contract killer, committing a series of hits. Now, it's up to him to somehow stop the killer from executing the last witness... as well as himself. Sounds interesting.

Stay tuned...
