Sean Anders & John Morris

A couple of weeks back, Sony scheduled a few movies for 2012, one of them being the comedy I Hate You Dad, which is now set for release on June 22nd in the summer. We knew who was in the cast, but not who was directing, but of course they've already got someone lined up or that announcement wouldn't have been made. Variety reports that Sean Anders and John Morris, pictured above, will co-direct I Hate You Dad starring Adam Sandler & Andy Samberg as father-son. Anders directed Sex Drive, Never Been Thawed, while Morris is a writer and producer with credits like Hot Tub Time Machine and She's Out of My League.

In I Hate You Dad, Sandler will play a father who moves in with his son, played by Samberg, and his fiancee (uncast), only to immediately start feuding with the bride-to-be. It sounds like a classic Sandler comedy, but now they've got contemporary comedian Andy Samberg to mix things it up. David Caspe ("Happy Endings") wrote the original script, with David Wain & Ken Marino (Wanderlust) on the rewrite. Sandler is producing through his Happy Madison banner. Color me excited. I was a fan of the rowdy Samberg we got a little bit of in Hot Rod and I hope this is just feuding and craziness to the max. We'll keep you updated on this project!
