Adam Sandler's Happy Madison Productions is getting back into the remake game as they have reportedly landed a deal to produce Paramount's long-gestating remake of the '80s comedy classic Summer School. The project has been in development since 2005, believe it or not, with Transformers and Star Trek screenwriters Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci most recently taking a shot at a script. The last remake that Happy Madison set up was the prison football comedy The Longest Yard, which Sandler himself starred in. He is not expected to star in this movie, although he will be on board as a producer. According to THR, this was originally the brainchild of producer Jordan Kerner (The Mighty Ducks, The Smurfs), who wanted to change the teacher to be a real hard ass who ends up "squaring off against one mischievous student."

The original Summer School starred Mark Harmon as a teacher whose vacation plans are ruined when he is forced to teach an English class filled with an unruly group of misfits. Kirstie Alley and Courtney Thorne-Smith also starred.
