An Adam Sandler/David Spade collaboration doesn’t at all excite me (I’m just not a fan of either), but there’s obviously something about the project that’s attractive enough to Paula Patton, since she’s joined both actor/comics in the Steve Brill-directed Netflix comedy feature, “The Do Over” – the second film in the multipicture deal Sandler’s Happy Madison production company inked with the premier streaming platform.
“The Do Over” centers on 2 down-on-their-luck guys who decide to fake their own deaths and start over with new identities, only to find the people they’re pretending to be are in even deeper trouble.
Chris Pappas and Kevin Barnett are penning the screenplay for a film that will shoot in Savannah, GA, in July.
Sandler’s first movie under the Netflix pact is the upcoming “The Ridiculous Six” – a film that’s been at the center of controversy over its depictions of Native Americans, which led to Native American actors who were cast in parts in the film, walking off the set.
As for Paula Patton, no word on what role exactly she’s signed up to play in “The Do Over.” On her upcoming slate is the Duncan Jones-directed adaptation of the massively-popular video game, “Warcraft,” which won’t be out for at least a year.
