Weekly News Ketchup: Adam Sandler's "Chuck and Larry," "Delta Farce," Anthony Hopkin's "Slipstream," and More!

by | June 18, 2006 | Comments

In this week’s wrap-up of news that ended up on the editing room floor, Adam Sandler and Kevin James wish they knew how to quit each other, a new movie crossbreeds a 1980s classic with Pauly Shore, and there has been a Leonardo DiCaprio sighting.

Adam Sandler and Kevin James will join the attack on the institution of marriage, in "I now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry." The film will be directed by Dennis Dugan ("Happy Gilmore") and written by Alexander Payne and James Taylor (the authors of "Sideways"). James and Sandler star as two firefighters who pretend to be a gay couple in order to receive their fire department’s domestic partner benefits. Hilarity ensues.

D.J. Qualls
, Keith David, and Danny Trejo will star in "Delta Farce" as three amigos that are in the army now. The trio is mistakenly dropped in Mexico instead of Iraq, and they wind up defending a village from bandits. C.B. Harding ("The Blue Collar Comedy Tour") is slated to direct.

In breaking news, Leonardo DiCaprio was photographed! That’s right, dashing Leo has been (gasp!) filming "The Blood Diamond," and (double gasp!) some sneaky and well-compensated photographer shot some photos of him in the act (of, uh, acting)!
