‘Sex Drive’ Team To Direct Adam Sandler & Andy Samberg In ‘I Hate You Dad’

'Sex Drive' Team To Direct Adam Sandler & Andy Samberg In 'I Hate You Dad'

We can see the trailer already: From The Guys Who Brought You “Sex Drive,” “She’s Out Of My League” and “Hot Tub Time Machine.” Gah. We just got sick for a moment.

Variety reports that Sean Anders and John Morris, responsible for penning all the above underachieving pics (with Anders directing the first one) as well as the upcoming “Mr. Popper’s Penguins,” are in talks to tag team the director’s chair for “I Hate You Dad.” We guess Dennis Dugan wasn’t available. Adam Sandler teams with “Saturday Night Live” star Andy Samberg in the film, with the older actor playing the younger’s father, who moves in with his son shortly before his wedding and finds himself falling out with the bride-to-be. Uh oh!

Our only hope in the film lies in the script which was given a re-write by David Wain and Ken Marino; here’s hoping Anders and Morris don’t mess with it. Lensing will probably gear up once “SNL” is done for the season, with a prime June 22, 2012 release date already set.
