And I spoke too soon
Happy Madison, the production banner run by Adam Sandler and Jack Giaraputo[that's Spanish for "Jar of puto" -Ed], is in negotiations to come aboard to produce Paramount’s planned remake of Summer School.
School was a light 1987 comedy directed by Carl Reiner that starred Mark Harmon as a gym teacher forced to cancel his summer plans and teach an English class filled with oddballs and rebels. The film also featured a young Courtney Thorne-Smith.
Sandler is not attached to star in the project, which soon will hire writers.
Paramount has been trying to remake the film since 2005, but the project has been stuck in development detention. [THR
God damn Summer School was a good movie. Im not sure how I feel about this. If there isnt a former UCLA qb playing the lead handsome teacher, a student who moonlights as a male stripper, a pregnant teen, 2 burnouts, a very cute 17 year old, and a super hot chick I will wait till its on demand to watch it.
