Adam Sandler, Kevin James Driving ‘Valet Guys’

8 December 2010 5:14 PM, PST | newsinfilm.com | See recent newsinfilm news »

Adam Sandler and Kevin James are continuing their partnership with Sony Pictures’ Valet Guys, a comedy about two veteran parking attendants at a South Beach hotel who witness a murder.

Deadline reports the script will be written by Nick Bakay and James, who co-wrote Paul Blart: Mall Cop.  Bakay was a producer and occasional bit actor on “The King of Queens” and co-wrote The Zookeeper, the unofficial Paul Blart sequel where a bumbling idiot/security guard finds love with the help of talking animals.  Bakay also voiced the cat on the late ’90s series “Sabrina the Teenage Witch.”  How’s that for a qualification?

Sandler and James have appeared together in Grown Ups and I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry (plus cameos by James in You Don’t Mess with the Zohan and 50 First Dates), and Sandler produced James’ breakout feature role in Mall Cop and his upcoming Ufc movie, »

Adam Sandler May Be A Valet Guy

7 December 2010 4:02 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Have Adam Sandler and Kevin James fallen on such hard times they’re having to scrape together a living parking cars? If you didn’t enjoy Grown Ups, you might consider that fair punishment for their cine-crimes, but it’s actually the basic concept for Valet Guys, a new pitch that Sony has bought with an eye to getting them to star in it.Nick Bakay won them over with his idea, something that sounds like Sister Act crossed with, well, blokes parking cars: two valet types at a posh hotel witness a murder and end up on the run for their lives.Bakay has had a varied career that has seen him as a writer and actor, but he’s possibly best known (depending on your age and TV viewing habits) as the voice of Salem, the sarcastic cat on Sabrina the Teenage Witch. No, really. And his worries »

Adam Sandler & Kevin James Together Again as the 'Valet Guys'

7 December 2010 11:55 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

If having them pretend to be gay firefighters in I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry wasn't enough funny for you, then you may be happy to know Adam Sandler and Kevin James are reuniting for another buddy comedy. Deadline reports the duo is likely to team-up for Valet Guys, a comedy which was just picked up by Sony Pictures Entertainment. Nick Bakay, a frequent James collaborator and the voice of Salem the cat on "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" is behind the pitch for the story which follows veteran valet parking guys at a South Beach hotel who witness a murder and find themselves running for their lives. Reminds me of Some Like It Hot, but this will probably be more like Some Like It Unfunny. Of course, with big name, generically pleasing funny guys like James and Sandler aboard, the pitch went for a big pricetag. Bakay »

Comic book illustrator John D'Agostino has died at the age of 81.

The Italian-born artist passed away in Ansonia, Connecticut on Sunday after a battle with bone cancer.

Archie co-president and editor-in-chief Victor Gorelick says, "John was concerned about doing the best job possible. He would always be available to help young artists improve their artwork and draw the Archie cast of characters. He was very dedicated to his work and Archie Comics.

"I had the privilege of working with John for over 40 years and considered him a good friend. I will truly miss him."

D'Agostino is survived by his second wife and three sons. »

Five comics that deserve a movie

30 November 2010 1:53 PM, PST | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

I couldn’t have agreed more with Gabriel Ruzin’s recent article on the pillaging of superhero stories by Hollywood. While there have been some great comic book movies made in the last decade, there are some that were less than stellar, and some proposed movies that – while they may appease those of us that like more than just the mainstream heroes – don’t show much box office promise, due to a movie audience that isn’t familiar with lower-tier heroes.

While I would shell out the bucks for a Luke Cage/Iron Fist movie, not too many others would. And Hollywood has proven that they are willing to go outside of the superhero genre when it comes to comic book movies. And if they’re done right, we can avoid missteps like League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. So if I may be so bold, here I offer a few funny »

31 October 2010 9:53 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

In the latest explosion of horror themes on television, vampires ruled first with zombies moving in to take a bite out of the pie as well. Now witches are trying to add some flavor to the brew.

Since Cranston landed the enviably rich role of Breaking Bad’s Walter White he has booked eight film roles that are currently in pre- or post-production. »

Melissa and Joey, the new sitcom starring Melissa Joan Hart (Sabrina the Teenage Witch) and Joey Lawrence (Brotherly Love) premieres August 17 on ABC Family.
