Grown Ups Sequel Planned…Urgh

In the future we’ll look across the blasted wasteland that was our civilization and be able to point with stunning accuracy where it all went wrong. A sequel to Grown Ups is in the works.

Grown Ups for those of you who either had the common sense to avoid it at the cinema or have repressed the memory will know that it saw a group of friends reuniting over the death of their basketball coach and travelling to the lake house where they had some previous good times. It was terrible and easily one of the worst films of 2010 but amazingly managed to rake in $230million at the box office. What the hell is wrong with you people?!

It was basically Adam Sandler and friends (an unholy union of Kevin James, David Spade, Rob Schneider and Chris Rock) making faltering jokes and farting, falling over in manure and generally embarrassing themselves.

Co-writer Fred Wolf is the only person involved in the project so far, so maybe Sandler has more sense than I gave him credit for, but quite how a sequel will pan out without the original stars is a bit of a mystery.
