Adam Sandler is set to star in comedy western 'Ridiculous 6'.
The 'Jack and Jill' star will begin production on the Paramount movie in April, and is currently writing it with Tim Herlihy.
Little is known about the potential story, although the title is reminiscent of Steve McQueen's 'The Magnificent Seven', which told the story of a group of men who protect a town in Mexico.
The movie is planned for a spring 2014 release, and no other stars are yet known for the project.
Adam has seen a number of movie misfires in the last year, including the aforementioned 'Jack and Jill', in which he plays a pair of siblings alongside Katie Holmes.
'That's My Boy' was also a cinematic dud.
However, 'Hotel Transylvania' - in which he voiced the role of Dracula - has been a success worldwide.
He will next be seen in 'Grown Ups 2', reprising the role of Lenny Feder.
