We've got about a million comedies out there where the mother-in-law makes trouble -- those sinister, trouble-making older women -- especially the moms of the grooms, who go on to terrorize the brides to be. It's pretty much a cinematic wedding staple by this point. However, it looks like things are switching up a bit for the new comedy I Hate You, Dad.

Variety reports that Columbia Pictures has picked up David Caspe's comic pitch, which focuses on a couple who are about to get married when the dad of the groom moves in, for whatever reason. As soon as he does, he "promptly begins feuding with the bride-to-be." Super fun!

There's lots of way this project can go, but I'm not too optimistic considering the fact that Happy Madison is producing it. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that Kevin James, Adam Sandler, or both of them will be in it, considering the last handful of HM movies to hit the screen. If not, there's sure to be at least a few other Sandler buddies in the mix somehow.
