Kevin James Hates You, So 'Paul Blart: Mall Cop' Sequel is Happening
Because torturing audiences with films like Here Comes the Boom, Zookeeper, The Dilemma and two Grown Ups films wasn't enough, Kevin James is bringing back his painfully stupid Paul Blart: Mall Cop for a completely unnecessary sequel at Sony Pictures. It's unclear just what will happen this time, but the comedy is said to take the bumbling security guard on another adventure. James will co-write the sequel again with the first film's co-writer Nick Bakay. However, Steve Carr couldn't be coaxed into this disaster, so the studio hired the "talents" of Andy Fickman, the man behind Parental Guidance and She's the Man.
THR reports Adam Sandler is producing with Todd Garner by way of his Happy Madison banner again. It seems appropriate that despite turning towards more substantial pieces of filmmaking like The Cobbler with Thomas McCarthy, Sandler is still helping to churn out pure garbage. James is also producing the film which is hoping to begin production in April. At least with a sequel like Grown Ups there was helpful elements like Chris Rock to keep things from driving people absolutely crazy. This time it's just Kevin James being a schlub on a segway again, because that's so damn funny. Whatever. Does anyone care?
