Adam Sandler Reteams with Frank Coraci on WB Comedy (EXCLUSIVE)

Untitled rom-com pairs helmer and funnyman for a fourth time

Adam Sandler, who has a taste for reteaming with helmers he’s worked with the past, has found another familiar collaborator as “Click” director Frank Coraci is in negotiations to direct Warner Bros. untitled rom-com.

This marks the fourth Sandler film Coraci will helm, having previously directed “The Wedding Singer” and “The Waterboy.” Coraci also helmed “The Zookeeper” which Sandler produced.

Story revolves around a couple who, after disastrous blind date, are stuck together in a family resort with their children from previous marriages.

Happy Madison will produce along with Mike Karz and Josie Rosen is exec producing for Karz and Gulfstream Pictures. Warners will now look to find its female lead before production begins this May.

Though Sandler hasn’t shied from working with big name directors like Paul Thomas Anderson, Judd Apatow and James L. Brooks, he’s often gone back to previous collaborators, and to good effect. Other regulars include Dennis Dugan, who has helmed seven Sandler pics, and Peter Segal, who directed three; in almost every case the film crossed the $100 million milestone at the domestic B.O.

Coraci most recently helmed Sony’s “Here Comes the Boom.” He is repped by ICM Partners, Management 360 and Sloane, Offer, Weber and Dern.
