Columbia Pictures is in final talks to pick up the raunchy comedy, You Don't Mess With the Zohan from Judd Apatow, Robert Smigel and Adam Sandler; Smigel is re-writing the final draft.

Sandler will also star and produce the film through his Happy Madison Productions. The film follows the exploits of a Mossad agent who fakes his death so he can anonymously move to New York and become a hair stylist, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Zohan starts shooting this summer in Los Angeles and New York; a summer 2008 release has been scheduled.
