Adam Sandler to Get Serious Again for Director Jason Reitman?

Sony

Say what you want about him (and we’ve all said plenty), Adam Sandler does take a chance every once in a while, as proven by his turns in ‘Punchdrunk Love’, ‘Reign Over Me’, and ‘Spanglish’. When he wants to, he can challenge himself, and it looks like he might attempt that again with director Jason Retiman and his new drama, ‘Men, Women & Children.’

While the deal is not yet done, Deadline reports that Sandler, Jennifer Garner and Rosemarie DeWitt are in talks to join the film, which is based upon the novel of the same name by Chad Kultgen. Cameron Diaz is also reportedly in talks, which would certainly surround Sandler with beautiful ladies if all works out.

Here’s a (somewhat vague) synopsis of the book:

 In Men, Women & Children [Kultgen] explores the sexual pressures at work on a handful of troubled, conflicted junior-high students and their equally dysfunctional parents. From porn-surfing fathers to World of Warcraft-obsessed sons, from competitive cheerleaders to their dissatisfied, misguided mothers, Kultgen clicks open the emotionally treacherous culture in which we live—in his most ambitious and surprising book yet.

No word on who Sandler would be playing, but chances are he portrays the father of one of the story’s teenagers. Sandler is currently filming the romantic comedy ‘The Familymoon’ with Drew Barrymore.
