SANDLER'S NEW TOON

Mickey Mouse, move over. Adam Sandler is such a big cheese that he’s preparing to franchise himself, reports Variety. He’s convinced Sony Pictures to develop an animated musical feature based on him. The project is expected to take several years to develop, so Sandler is rarin’ to get going as soon as possible, the trade paper says.

  • In other movie news, “George of the Jungle” and “Gods and Monsters” star Brendan Fraser, soon to be seen in “Blast from the Past,” is working on a deal to star in the supernatural adventure “Monkey Bone,” in which he’ll play a neurotic cartoonist with a hit animated TV show. After a car crash, he slips into a coma, wherein he joins forces with one of his creations, Monkey Bone, to battle Death (also a cartoon) in Dark Town (purgatory).
