Jason Reitman Wants to Direct Adam Sandler

Actor Adam Sandler attends the "Grown Ups 2" New York Premiere at AMC Lincoln Square Theater on July 10, 2013 in New York City.

Jason Reitman is hard at work on his next movie, an adaptation of Chad Kultgen's book Men, Women, & Children. (Reitman's such a fan that he has a blurb on the back of the book.) And according to The Hollywood Reporter, he's hoping to cast Adam Sandler, Rosemarie DeWitt, and Jennifer Garner. It's not clear who exactly they would each play, but the book is about the messed-up psychosexual dynamics of parents and their junior-high-age children. Well, hurrah for the return of Serious Adam Sandler.
