First Photos of Adam Sandler in Drag; Plays Twin Sister in JACK AND JILL

     October 13, 2010

Think what you will about Adam Sandler, but his movies make money.  Since 1998, 11 of his 16 movies have broken 100 million dollars at the domestic box office.  That’s a winning percentage for any movie star.  And even though most critics didn’t enjoy Grown Ups (his lastest movie), the film went on to gross over 264 million at the worldwide box office.  What I’m trying to say is…Sandler is very popular and I wouldn’t bet against him.

That’s why even though the thought of Adam Sandler dressing in drag to play his twin sister in Dennis Dugan’s (Happy Gilmore, You Don’t Mess With the Zohan) new movie Jack and Jill doesn’t seem like a good idea to me (especially after seeing these pictures), I know it’ll still make a ton of money and some people are going to love it.  Hit the jump for more pictures and what we know about the movie:

As we previously reported in June, Sandler talked about Jack and Jill and said:

In Jack and Jill I play me, I play my twin sister. The man version of me is doing okay, he has a family out in L.A.; the twin-sister-version of me lives out in the Bronx and comes out to L.A. for Thanksgiving and then refuses to leave and is spoiling the man version of [me’s] family life a little bit.

The one positive about the project is according to IMDb, the script was partly written by Robert Smigel.  I’m a fan of his work on Saturday Night Live and think his addition can only help the project.

As of now, the film has no release date, but it’s listed for 2011.  What that means is…the earliest Jack and Jill is going to hit theaters is next summer.  Al Pacino and Katie Holmes also star.  More as we get it.
