Director Dennis Dugan (“Happy Gilmore,” “Big Daddy”) is set to reteam with Adam Sandler in Sony Pictures’ “You Don’t Mess With the Zohan” says The Hollywood Reporter.
The film centers on a Mossad agent (Sandler) who fakes his death so he can move to New York and become a hairstylist.
Rob Schneider already has boarded the project as an East Yistannen cab driver. Judd Apatow, Robert Smigel and Sandler penned the screenplay.
Shooting for “Zohan” will begin in the summer in Los Angeles and New York. A Summer 2008 release is planned.
