Sony Pictures Teams up with Kevin James Again for HERE COMES THE BOOM

     April 29, 2010

It’s not surprising that Sony Pictures would want to stay friends with Kevin James.  Paul Blart: Mall Cop raked in $183 million worldwide and countless tears for humanity off a budget of $26 million.  The next Sony/James collaboration, The Zookeeper, was recently pushed back from October to next summer because the studio thinks it will be a major blockbuster.

Now Variety reports that the studio and actor will reunite again for the action comedy Here Comes the Boom.  Plot details are being kept under wraps.  I don’t know which is sadder: that it has a plot or that it’s considered so mind-blowing that you’re not ready to even know what it’s about.  James co-wrote the script with Rock Reuben and will also serve as a producer on the film alongside Adam Sandler and Todd Garner.  Salma Hayek is circling the role of the film’s female lead.
