Kevin James to star in ‘Mall Cop’

Happy Madison will produce comedy

Kevin James is set to protect and serve for Columbia Pictures. The “Hitch” star has signed on to write, produce and star in the comedy “Mall Cop.”

Story centers on a mild-mannered security guard thrust into action when highly organized thieves take over his mall. James will pen the screenplay with Nick Bakay.

Sony-based Happy Madison is producing alongside James, Jeff Sussman and Todd Garner.

James is considered home-grown talent at Sony. The former standup comedian became a sitcom star on Sony Pictures Television’s long-running CBS comedy “The King of Queens.” In 2005, he starred opposite Will Smith in Col’s hit comedy “Hitch.”

“Mall Cop” also reteams James with Adam Sandler and his Happy Madison shingle, which produced the Sandler-James starrer “I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry.”
