Adam Sandler and Dexter's Daddy join forces

Comedic stalwart Adam Sandler and a few other funny people have been confirmed to voice characters in Sony Pictures Animation's new 3D family comedy, Hotel Transylvania, Hitfix said on Tuesday.

Adam Sandler is gathering some scary pals for the 3D family comedy "Hotel Transylvania" for Sony Pictures Animation. Sandler will voice the lead role of Dracula in a comedy homage to classic monsters movies. The movie will be directed by the genius who created the cartoons: Dexter's Laboratory and Samurai Jack; Genndy Tartakovsky.

The movie also features The King of Queens' Kevin James, as Frankenstein, the Nanny's Fran Drescher as the Bride, Just Shoot Me's David Spade as Quasimodo, singer Cee Lo Green as the Mummy, and the best thing about Saturday Night Live, Andy Samberg, as Jonathan, a 21-year-old man who checks into the hotel. Brilliant actor Steve Buscemi, and Molly Shannon will also feature.

Many people may be tired of Sandler's bad romantic comedies and corny children's movies but the ensemble cast and talented director should result in a good film. It will be better received than Sandler's 2D animated movie, 8 Crazy Nights (2002), which was decent, I thought.
