Deadline reports that Sony is getting back into business with comedians Adam Sandler and Kevin James with the new project Valet Guys.
The studio bought a preemptive pitch for the comedy, which Kevin James will write along with Nick Bakay. The story centers on two longtime valets at a ritzy South Beach hotel who witness a murder and go on the lam. Adam Sandler and Kevin James would star as the valets.
Nick Bakay and Kevin James have collaborated in the past, with both co-writing Paul Blart: Mall Cop and the upcoming comedy The Zookeeper, which Sony will release on July 8. Adam Sandler and Kevin James have previously starred together in I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry and this summer’s Grown Ups.
No production schedule was set for Valet Guys at this time.
