Adam Sandler and his Happy Madison production company are in talks to take on a remake of the 1980s comedy Summer School. Sandler would produce with his business partner Jack Giarraputo. There are currently no (known) plans for Sandler to star in the movie.

The original Summer School movie came out in 1987. Directed by Carl Reiner, it starred Mark Harmon as a laid-back surfer-style P.E. teacher that got trapped into teaching a summertime remedial English course to a bunch of failures. Kirstie Alley co-starred as Harmon's love interest, a fellow teacher.

Paramount has tried since 2005 to remake Summer School. The studio first hired Jordan Kerner (The Smurfs) to develop a new Summer School film which would have turned Harmon's buddy teacher into a hard-nosed tutor that has a student adversary. After Kerner left the project, in 2010 Paramount then turned to Star Trek writers/producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci to work on the remake. That idea soon fizzled out as the duo's attention turned to other higher profile projects.
