Adam Sandler isn’t letting that whole business of being crowned King of the Razzies get him down.
The funnyman's 2011 film, “Jack and Jill,” made history at the Razzie Awards - winning every category in a contest designed to “honor” the worst filmmaking of the year. But it’s been reported that he's in talks to help produce a remake of the '80s comedy “Summer School.”
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Paramount studios has been trying to revamp the script for the hit movie for the past six years, but it’s repeatedly gotten stuck in development.
But now that Sandler’s production company, Happy Madison, is said to be in negotiations, sources tell THR that it looks like the project will finally get off the ground.
“Summer School” is a 1987 comedy that starred Mark Harmon as a gym teacher who had to ditch his summer vacation plans to teach an English class full of misfits and geeks.
One revised script would have reportedly changed Harmon’s easy-going character into a much tougher one, and making him the nemesis of one particular student.
Another was reportedly crafted by two former “Star Trek” writer/producers, but it didn’t stick.
Now, apparently the studio has what it wants, which is a laugh-out-loud funny vision reportedly provided by Sandler.
Interestingly enough, the celeb is not currently expected to star in the film.
I just want to second the opinion of the commenter above that a good bowel movement is very refreshing. Sometimes it feels like I lost several pounds. I feel lighter, leaner, and ready to conquer!
How is he getting the money?- his last-5 moveies were awful.
Sandler's career of late looks like the Hindenburg going down in flames.
Maybe the only way this movie will succeed is to turn the re-make into a sequel w/ Mark Harmon and Courtney Thorne-Smith.
But she got over him. He was just a phase.
Did you ever think maybe he is just a fool playing an a hole?
I have never seen a movie with Adam Sandler in which he managed to struggle even up to mediocre in his performance.
Jack and Jill was so bad that it was funny.

To each his own. I like his kind of comedy.
hmm here is a thought, stop doing remakes.
Will it be as good as jack and Jill? We can only hope...
Don't know much about the razzie awards, but I sure liked razzle candy!
Nooooo! Adam Sandler better stay away from Summer School. It's bad enough he's making terrible new movies, he doesn't have to ruin good movies from the past too.
Nobody can replace Mark Harmon in the original "Summer School". I'm getting tired of remakes – they're never as good as the originals!
He seems ok. Not gay funny. Just kind of odd.
I never really thought he was all that funny anyway.
Great. If Adam Sandler is attached to it, it will suck big time.
What is everyone going to do for spring break? Our school is out for 4 days !
If you're going to remake a movie why not a good one? This one was horrible! The only good news is it wont star Sandler who hasn't had a good movie in over a decade
They should remake Star Wars but make it good this time.
Says a troll who hasn't seen Funny People.............
Another remake. What's wrong with Hollywood?
Everyone loves a good bowel movement. It is just so refreshing.
