‘Missy’ gets its man

San­dler, Spade’s lat­est project lands di­rec­tor

Boston Herald - - NEWS -

Adam San­dler’s lat­est pro­duc­tion project just found its di­rec­tor, and he’s no stranger to the Sandman. Tyler Spin­del is now ap­par­ently tak­ing the helm for “The Wrong Missy,” the Hol­ly­wood Re­porter first re­ported. The up­com­ing com­edy will star David Spade and will have the New Hamp­shire-raised co­me­dian pro­duc­ing through his Happy Madi­son Pro­duc­tions, in part­ner­ship with Net­flix and Q.C. Entertainment. The movie is sup­posed to cen­ter on Spade’s char­ac­ter of Tim Mor­ris, a guy who meets the per­fect girl and tries to ask her to tag along on his work’s cor­po­rate re­treat. But the week­end of his dreams quickly turns into a night­mare when, be­cause of a tex­ting snafu, a blind-date-gone-wrong from Mor­ris’ past rolls up to the re­treat in­stead of the lady he ac­tu­ally likes. Spin­del, who’s also slated to di­rect the up­com­ing pic “De­ported” star­ring Whit­mer Thomas and Me­gan Park, has lent his skills in the chair to the fa­mous pals in the past. Pre­vi­ously, he served as di­rec­tor for “Fa­ther of the Year,” an­other flick star­ring Spade and pro­duced by San­dler that made its Net­flix de­but back in July. In ad­di­tion to San­dler, pro­duc­ers for “The Wrong Missy” in­clude Allen Covert, Barry Bernardi, Kevin Grady and Ju­dit Maull, as well as folks from Q.C. Entertainment. And this time around, Chris Pap­pas and Kevin Bar­nett are re­spon­si­ble for the script.
