Reaffirming Grown Ups' timeless message that Adam Sandler likes getting his friends jobs, that film's amassing of Sandler, Kevin James, David Spade, and Steve Buscemi will once again be happening, this time for Sony Pictures Animation's 3-D comedy Hotel Transylvania. Andy Samberg, Molly Shannon, Fran Drescher, and Cee Lo Green have also joined the Genndy Tartakovsky-directed film, which takes place in a Transylvanian resort inhabited by vampires, Frankensteins, mummies, and so on. Sandler will be providing the voice for Dracula, the proprietor of what the film's press release calls a "five-stake" resort (because "stake" is vaguely like "star") and an overprotective father trying to keep his vampire teenage daughter away from a human boy, because he does not want her humping him through a wall. Samberg provides the voice for said boy, while James will play a Frankenstein monster, Drescher will play Bride thereof (naturally), Spade will play a hunchback/chef, Shannon and Buscemi will play a werewolf couple, and Green will play a mummy, and will undoubtedly break into a rendition of "Fuck You" that's been adapted into "Haunt You" or whatever. Rob Schneider's name wasn't mentioned, but unfortunately he still heard us crack open the can of Adam Sandler comedy and he's already rubbing against our legs like he's sure we're going to give him some.
