Adam Sandler to Develop Bad Toys II
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Adam Sandler and his Happy Madison production company will be working on a full length feature version of the hybrid animated-live-action short Bad Toys II. The project will include original directors Daniel Brunet and Nicolas Douste as co-exec producers.
The original short combines live-action, CG-animation and comic book panels to come up with a fresh new style, and focuses on a destructive car chase in which the key players are all toys on a living room floor. The camera work, sound effects, and editing all bring to mind blockbuster action movies similar to the ones that Michael Bay makes.The title is a pun on the Will Smith movie franchise.
Sandler’s version of Bad Toys II tells the story of a grown man who manages to reconnect with his boyhood imagination after getting a chance to play with his son’s toys, with his imagination bringing to life an action-packed movie with high speed chase scenes.
