Following their romantic comedy team-ups in The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates, Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore will once again reunite, though now with a brand new title.  Previously named Blended, the movie has been changed to The Familymoon.  The story centers on “a couple who, after disastrous blind date, are stuck together in a family resort with their children from previous marriages.”  You can pretty much fill in the blanks on the rest of the story from there.  Frank Coraci (The Wedding Singer) directs from an original script from Ivan Menchell and Clare Sera.  Deadline reported on the title change citing marketing’s preference for the new moniker.  Hit the jump for more on the casting news.

The Wrap reports wendi-mclendon-coveythat McLendon-Covey and McHale will join the newly-titled The Familymoon.  McHale will play “Barrymore’s former husband while McLendon-Covey will play Barrymore’s best friend, a woman who has no children.”  McLendon-Covey has a slew of movies coming out over the next year or so, including Tyler Perry’s Single Moms Club and James Griffiths’ Cuban Fury.  McHale, who was last reported as being in negotiations for the Coraci picture, will next star in Tristram Shapeero’s A Friggin’ Christmas Miracle, alongside McLendon-Covey.  He’ll next join Scott Derrickson’s crime-horror picture, Beware the Night.
