Adam Sandler set to take the lead role in French comedy remake

Pajiba is reporting that Adam Sandler is set to take the lead role in Narco .

The film, which is being developed by Sandler's production house Happy Madison, is a remake of 2004 French movie The Secret Adventures of Gustave Klopp .

That movie features a narcoleptic protagonist who leads a boring life, only to become an action star during his (frequent) snoozes.

The French film apparently featured Jean Claude Van Damme as one of the dreamtime alter egos. We can imagine that Sandler would want to take on the roles himself if this was his vehicle, but who knows? Perhaps he'll be putting a call out to the cast of The Expendables

Apparently Sandler has also been offered the lead in $40,000 Man . The script, which was on the Black List (of Hollywood's best unproduced screenplays) a few years back, sees an astronaut rebuilt bionically for a paltry budget.

Both sound like suitable vehicles for Sandler, and as his high-concept comedies are pretty much a licence to print money at the box office, expect to hear an official confirmation of his next project sooner rather than later.
