Community star Joel McHale is joining Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore in Warner Bros.’ untitled romantic comedy being directed by Frank Coraci.
The project, which initially was called Blended when it was set up as a pitch in 2007, centers on a man and a woman who, after a disastrous first date, get trapped at a family resort with their kids from previous marriages in tow.
McHale will play Barrymore’s immature and skeezy ex-husband.
