Happy Madison to exec produce Carvey pic
Art director and production designer Perry Andelin Blake will make his feature film directorial debut with Revolution Studio’s “Master of Disguise,” starring “Saturday Night Live” alum Dana Carvey.
Skedded to start lensing Sept. 24, pic will be produced by Todd Garner, Alex Siskin, Barry Bernardi and Sid Ganis. Adam Sandler and Jack Giarraputo will exec produce with their Revolution-based Happy Madison shingle. Derek Dauchy is overseeing the pic for Revolution.
Carvey and comic scribe Harris Goldberg (“Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo”) penned the script, which revolves around the last remaining survivor of a family, whose members were masters of disguise.
Before working in the industry, Blake received a Masters of Architecture from Harvard U. and moved to L.A. to work with noted-architect Frank Gehry. After that, he worked as an art director on commercials and TV shows before moving into feature film.
Blake has crafted the look of several Sandler films, including “Happy Gilmore,” “Billy Madison,” “The Wedding Singer,” “The Waterboy,” “Big Daddy” and “Little Nicky.”
Aside from Sandler, Blake has found a fan in heavy metal icon Ozzy Osbourne, who appeared in “Little Nicky.” Impressed by Blake’s work on the pic, he commissioned him to design the stage for his Ozzfest music tour.
