First Look: Adam Sandler in You Don't Mess with the Zohan
Even after 12 years since Billy Madison first came out, Adam Sandler is still delivering strong, even giving a great dramatic performance in Reign Over Me. Sandler can even do a great job changing his image from the same likeable Jewish face we've come to love into something striking, like in Reign Over Me and now in this. His next film is titled You Don't Mess with the Zohan and is written by three comedy greats: Knocked Up's Judd Apatow, SNL's Robert Smigel and Adam Sandler together. In it, Sandler plays an Israel Intelligence Agency operative, and he looks quite convincing, at least for a comedy.
The plot follows the exploits of a Mossad agent, played by Sandler, who fakes his death so he can anonymously move to New York and become a hair stylist. The photo comes courtesy of JoBlo, so send some love their way, too!
You Don't Mess with the Zohan is directed by Dennis Dugan, who previously directed I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, The Benchwarmers, Saving Silverman, and Big Daddy. The film arrives in theaters next year on June 6th, 2008.
