It's 'Bedtime' for Sandler with Disney


Adam Sandler is set to star in his first Walt Disney Pictures film, the family comedy "Bedtime Stories," being directed by Adam Shankman (HR 4/4). Sandler also will produce with his Happy Madison partner Jack Giarraputo along with Andrew Gunn and his Gunn Films banner.

"Bedtime" features Sandler as a harried real estate developer whose life is turned upside down when the lavish bedtime stories he tells his niece and nephew begin to come true. Matt Lopez wrote the script.

Production will begin this year for a holiday 2008 release.

Shankman and his Offspring Entertainment partner Jennifer Gibgot are executive producing along with Gunn Films' Ann Marie Sanderlin. Jason Reed is overseeing for Disney.
