Adam Sandler’s production company Happy Madison will produce a thriller titled ‘Shortcut’

The company, known for comedies such as ‘Anger Management’, ‘Click’ and the upcoming ‘You Don’t Mess With The Zohan’, will segue into a new genre by producing Shortcut through its newly-formed Scary Madison division.

‘Shortcut’ follows two brothers who discover a rarely used route in their new town. It soon emerges that residents have good reason to avoid the shortcut.

Nicholaus Goosen will direct the film, with Sandler and business partner Jack Giarraputo acting as executive producers.

Sandler’s next film ‘You Don’t Mess With The Zohan’ hits Irish cinemas August 15th.
