Salma Hayek eyeing Col's friends comedy

Adam Sandler, Kevin James star in ensemble pic

Salma Hayek is in negotiations to play Adam Sandler's wife in Columbia Pictures' untitled ensemble comedy that stars Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider and David Spade.

Maya Rudolph, as Rock's wife, and Colin Quinn also are joining the project, the tale of five best friends from high school who reunite over a holiday weekend.

Dennis Dugan is directing the script by Sandler and Fred Wolf, which is scheduled to go into production in the summer.

Sandler's Sony-based Happy Madison, which fielded the hit "Paul Blart: Mall Cop," is producing.

Hayek, repped by CAA and Management 360, recently has been seen in a recurring role as Alec Baldwin's love interest on "30 Rock" and also serves as exec producer of "Ugly Betty." Her next big-screen appearance will be in Paul Weitz's "Cirque du Freak."
