Trio ‘Click’ on script shift

'Bride' scribe to join Koren, O'Keefe on Sandler pic

Juan Jose Campanella is supervising a rewrite of the Adam Sandler laffer “Click” with an eye to possibly directing the film for Columbia Pictures and Revolution Studios.

Campanella will work with the film’s original scribes, Steve Koren and Mark O’Keefe (“Bruce Almighty”), on the script, which concerns a workaholic architect who finds a universal remote that allows him to fast-forward and rewind to different parts of his life. Complications arise when the remote starts to overrule his choices.

Pic is jointly produced by Sandler’s Happy Madison shingle and Neal Moritz’s Original Film, which brought the project to Sony. Sandler, his Happy Madison partner Jack Giarraputo and Moritz are producing.

Sandler and Campanella first clicked two years ago, when Col optioned the English-language remake rights to Sony Pictures Classics’ Argentine film “The Son of the Bride,” which Campanella wrote and directed. Pic was bought as a vehicle for Sandler to star in and produce.

Next week “The Moon of Avellaneda,” which Campanella wrote and directed, will be released in Buenos Aires. He is also attached to direct “She’s Gone,” a Michelle Pfeiffer pic at Beacon Films.
