Oh No, “Grown Ups 2” May Be On The Way

As if Adam Sandler and the rest of Happy Madison haven’t learned from their mistakes in 2011 (AKA Bucky Larson and Jack & Jill), a new Hollywood headline has UTG starting to think they have actually gone insane.

Variety is reporting that Sandler’s production company (Happy Madison) is in talks with Grown Ups writer (and frequent Sandler-collaborator) Fred Wolf to pen a follow-up to 2010’s $271 million dollar box office smash. Those familiar with Sandler’s work know he has never done a sequel, and he currently has no contractual obligations to appear in GU2, but given his company’s strong involvement many are guessing this will be his first.

Now I understand that it is hard to resist making another version of something that grossed $271 Million, but anyone that has actually attempted to sit through Grown Up SHOULD be able to tell you a sequel is severaly unwarranted. This is just another sloppy cash grab by Hollywood’s elite that, considering the success of Jack & Jill, will most likely succeed without error or protest.

Sandler is not on Twitter, but his production company has a very inactive account with a few hundred followers. It is not much, but those feeling the need to speak their mind can click here and send them a tweet to vent frustrations.
