Happy day for ‘Grown-up’

Sandler's shingle will co-produce Par adaptation

Is Adam Sandler ready to face adulthood?

Sandler’s Happy Madison will join Kevin Misher in producing Paramount Pictures’ adaptation of Dan Zevin’s comic memoir “The Day I Turned Uncool: Confessions of a Reluctant Grown-Up.”

“Hollywoodland” scribe Paul Bernbaum is set to adapt the book, with the project crafted as a potential star vehicle for Sandler. Happy Madison’s Jack Giarraputo and Heather Parry will produce with Misher.

Par-based Misher Films used its discretionary fund to option the Zevin book last year (Daily Variety, May 2, 2005). In the book, Zevin pondered the cataclysmic reality of hitting his 30s and facing up to the commitments that come with graduating into adulthood.

With Shady Acres, Happy Madison is producing “I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry.”
