Netflix isn’t the only one Adam Sandler is working for now as the comedian and his Happy Madison Productions label have signed on to write, produce and star in a new untitled animated project for STX Entertainment.
The company is currently developing an animated motion picture based on the beloved Uglydoll toy brand, this will NOT be that but it is expected to be a family targeted IP. Sandler’s two “Hotel Transylvania” films have generated more than $825 million worldwide.
Adam Fogelson, Chairman of the STX Entertainment Motion Picture Group, says in a statement: “As we continue to grow our company, the family arena is of critical importance to STX Entertainment and we are tremendously excited to have Adam Sandler and Happy Madison developing projects with us for the global animation market. Happy Madison is one of the most consistently successful and talented producers of family entertainment working in the business today. They have steadily been building this brand in this arena for years with the incredible success of the ‘Hotel Transylvania’ animated franchise. Adam already has some wonderful ideas about what he wants to develop with us and we look forward to working with him, Allen Covert and the entire Happy Madison team.”
Sandler’s newest film is “The Do-Over” in which he co-stars with David Spade and Paula Patton. That film premieres on Netflix on Friday.
