Drew Barrymore is currently looking for a new project to work on alongside Adam Sandler, with whom she has previously starred in 50 First Dates, Blended, and The Wedding Singer.
Drew Barrymore is making active efforts to collaborate on a new film with Adam Sandler. Their on-screen partnership dates back to 1998 when they starred in The Wedding Singer, and subsequently appeared in two more romantic comedies: 50 First Dates and Blended.
In an interview with ET Online, Barrymore hinted at the possibility of another collaboration with Sandler. She mentioned that both of them are looking for a unique and ideal concept before teaming up again. Despite that, Barrymore is actively pursuing the idea of working with Sandler once more.
When Will They Work On A Movie Together?
Barrymore has previously hinted at the possibility of teaming up with Sandler again, and this is not the first time. Earlier this year, she made a vague comment suggesting her return to the screen with Sandler by saying “As soon as you talk about Adam Sandler, I’m like, ‘Oh, well maybe. Sure.'” However, this time, Barrymore appears more committed to the idea of working with Sandler again, and there could be a project already in the works.
Barrymore’s statement doesn’t provide any indication of when a project with Sandler might materialize. She mentioned that they need time to come up with a unique concept for their next film together, which serves two purposes. Firstly, it creates anticipation for a well-planned collaboration between Barrymore and Sandler. If the project does come to fruition, it could have a pre-existing audience that is excited about the idea. Secondly, it leaves the timeline and specifics of the potential movie completely open, providing them with ample flexibility.
Assuming a positive perspective on Barrymore’s statement, their upcoming collaboration might take them back to their earlier works. The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates are highly appreciated romantic comedies that remain popular even today, unlike Blended, which received negative reviews from critics. By taking their time, Sandler and Barrymore might create a new rom-com classic. Alternatively, they could venture into an entirely new genre. Since Sandler has been experimenting with drama lately, Barrymore could explore this area as well. The options are unlimited.
