Adam Sandler to Turn Dracula Story Into Adam Sandler Movie

Vampire tales remain big business, and now Adam Sandler is going to sink his fangs into the genre. Sony announced today that Sandler will voice Dracula in its upcoming animated film Hotel Transylvania, which casts the Count as a concerned dad trying to keep his vamp daughter close to home β€” though in this case, home is a resort catering to classic movie monsters. And yes, despite the supernatural trappings and change of format, Sandler still managed to scare up some co-starring roles for his stable of regulars, including Kevin James, Steve Buscemi, and David Spade. (Meanwhile, Rob Schneider waits patiently by the phone, practicing his mummy moan.) [Coming Soon]
