‘Summer School’ Remake: Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison Production Company To Reboot 1987 Film

Adam Sandler is on a roll. After the actor’s 2011 film, “Jack and Jill,” swept the Razzies last weekend, his company, Happy Madison, is set to take the reigns on a remake of the 1987 comedy “Summer School.” According to the Hollywood Reporter, Happy Madison is currently in negotiations to handle production of the movie, which has been stuck in development since 2005. The original film, directed by Carl Reiner, starred Mark Harmon as Freddy Shoop, a high-school gym teacher forced to teach a summer English class. Kirstie Alley played Robin Bishop, a co-worker that Freddy falls for. No word on whether Sandler would actually be starring in the movie, however, if he did, it wouldn’t be the first time he delved into the educational field: In 1995’s “Billy Madison,” he famously played a grown man forced to return to grade school.
