Adam Sandler Is Thinking About a Three Mississippi Interception

We had reported over a year ago that Adam McKay was set to direct Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, and Alec Baldwin in the Thanksgiving football comedy Three Mississippi; however, in the last few months there was a fumble and a lot of wrestling over the ball. Recently, the ball seems to have rolled right to Adam Sandler's feet, as balls are wont to do. First, a film that explicitly was created to showcase Wahlberg and Baldwin's Departed-like banter lost Wahlberg to some action movie where guns are shot at foreigners. Then because of the surprise Anchorman sequel, McKay was out as well and Sean Anders was brought in to replace him. Anders last worked on That's My Boy and since Adam Sandler tends to work with the same people over and over, he became the natural replacement for Wahlberg. Woof! Did you get all of that? Arguably, two of Sandler's better films involve him playing football so maybe Three Mississippi will be what we call high quality H2O.

    You aren't counting The Waterboy as one of Sandler's "better movies", are you?  That movie was awful, it was the one that started the barage of horrible Sandler films.
