It's been a few years since we were last treated to a Barry Sonnenfeld film, and considering that the guy's most recent efforts were Men in Black 2, Big Trouble, and RV ... well, we can be forgiven if we're not screaming for a comeback. But it looks like the cinematographer-turned-director has found inspiration in the recent Korean hitScandal Makers.

According to Variety, the comedy "centers on a philandering pop singer whose life is turned upside-down when he discovers that he has a daughter and a grandson," which creates visions of a Disney version starring Dwayne Johnson, Anne Hathaway, and whichever Breslin kid happens to be two years old right now. Mr. Sonnenfeld will be producing as well as directing, and he's presently looking to hook up with a studio (and probably a screenwriter).

And just so he doesn't think we don't respect him, we'll remind the Cinematical readers that Barry Sonnenfeld ALSO directed The Addams Family, Get Shorty, and the first Men in Black, which I didn't dig but everyone else did. Plus it's virtually impossible to knock the man who shot Raising Arizona. Maybe a sequel to RV would change my mind...
