Sarandon is in negotiations to nab the plum role of a sexy teacher who ends up being the mother to Andy Samberg in Columbia’s I Hate You, Dad.
The movie, which shoots in Boston this summer under the direction of Sean Anders, centers on a father (Sandler) who moves in on the eve of the wedding of his son (Samberg) and promptly begins feuding with the bride-to-be.
The cast already includes Leighton Meester as Samberg’s fiancée, Ian Ziering as a booze- and blow-addicted version of himself and Vanilla Ice playing himself.
Columbia is also in talks for a slew of actors to join the cast, including James Caan, Will Forte and Milo Ventimiglia, as well as Sarandon’s real-life daughter Eva Amurri (Californication), Blake Clark, Meagan Fay (Party Down), Tony Orlando and Dan Patrick.
The major role here is the teacher character, with the studio being very picky as to whom they sought to play educator Mary McGarricle.
Ever since she first seduced Tim Robbins in Bull Durham, Sarandon has made playing older-but-hot to her on-screen love interests a cottage industry. The ICM-repped actress last appeared on-screen in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and is slated to appear in Cloud Atlas, the new film from the Wachowskis.
Dad is being overseen by Heather Parry on behalf of Happy Madison and at the studio by Sam Dickerman and Adam Milano. John Morris is exec producing.
