Adam Sandler on ‘Jack’ track

Actor to play both Jack and Jill in Columbia film

Adam Sandler is climbing up the hill for Columbia Pictures.

The actor will next star in the romantic comedy “Jack and Jill” and produce via his Happy Madison shingle. Sandler will play Jack as well as twin sister Jill.

Project was brought to Happy Madison by Todd Garner (“Paul Blart: Mall Cop”), who will also produce alongside Sandler’s partner Jack Giarraputo. Steve Koren, whose relationship with Sandler dates back to their “Saturday Night Live” days, penned the screenplay along with Sandler and Robert Smigel.

“Jack and Jill” is scheduled to begin lensing early next year and will be released by Sony in early 2011.

Sandler, who starred in Universal’s Judd Apatow-helmed “Funny People,” will next be seen in Sony’s high school reunion comedy “Grown Ups” and will also lend his voice for MGM/Sony comedy “Zookeeper.”

He is repped by WME and Brillstein Entertainment.
