Taylor Lautner Joins Adam Sandler in GROWN UPS 2

     April 4, 2012


Twilight’s Taylor Lautner has apparently outgrown vampires and is now interested in comedies.  Enter Adam Sandler’s first-ever sequel, Grown Ups 2.  Lautner is reportedly in negotiations to star opposite Sandler in a role that would allow him to go “toe-to-toe” with the veteran comedian.  Details are in short order at the moment, but reports specify this only as a “fun” role for Lautner, who is looking for another big movie to hang on to. Since The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 will be closing out the franchise when it hits theaters November 16th, and even with the lackluster box office response to Lautner’s Abduction, the young star might just strike gold in Grown Ups 2. The original film about a reunion of childhood friends grossed over $160 million domestically. Hit the jump for more on the sequel.

THR reports taylor-lautner-grown-ups-2that Lautner’s character in Grown Ups 2 will be play a key role opposite Sandler and company. Sandler is obviously returning along with director Dennis Dugan. The original cast of Kevin James, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider, David Spade, Salma Hayek, Maya Rudolph and Maria Bello is expected to return. The sequel is slated to hit theaters on July 12, 2013. In case you missed it the first time around, here’s the synopsis for the first Grown Ups:

Grown Ups, starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider, and David Spade, is a comedy about five friends and former teammates who reunite years later to honor the passing of their childhood basketball coach. With their wives (Salma Hayek, Maria Bello, Maya Rudolph) and kids in tow, they spend the Fourth of July holiday weekend together at the lake house where they celebrated their championship years earlier. Picking up where they left off, they discover why growing older doesn’t mean growing up.

    In case I ever wanted to actively make myself stupider, I can watch this film.

  • Eric Nixon

    Wow. Sandler’s really trying to down the ante on this one.

    • Dananon

      That comment really made me laugh.

  • Michelle

    And there goes what little of a career he had.

  • Travis

    You know what? I actually kinda…kinda…liked the first GROWN-UPS. This only proves the possibility that Sandler may very well be on drugs.

    I will not watch this movie.

  • Strong Enough

    yea he keeps picking stupid roles. maybe hes not getting offered any?

  • Justin

    I guess Taylor Lautner’s following the latter half of Nicolas Cage’s career by picking movies that are guaranteed to be shitty.

  • marie

    wasn’t interested in this, now will actively avoid it.

    I’m really starting to think that Adam Sandler is pulling some Andy Kaufmanesque joke where he keeps lowering the bar and making dumber and dumber movies. Much to his amazement, people keep flocking to these movies forcing him to further lower the bar.

    After Punch Drunk Love and Funny People didn’t make a lot at the box office he said, “FUCK THIS! YOU PEOPLE DESERVE JACK AND JILL!”
