Yes, the ensemble comedy “Grown Ups” is getting a sequel and Oliver Cooper, one of the three stars of “Project X,” is in negotiations to join the cast. With the working title GROWN UPS 2, the new film will see most of its original cast return, including Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, Maya Rudolph and Salma Hayek.
Dennis Dugan will also return to direct the sequel. The first movie told the story of a group of childhood friends who reunite as adults after their high school basketball coach dies.
The casting marks the second star of “Project X” to land a new feature role within weeks of the film’s release. Thomas Mann was cast two weeks go in Alcon’s “Beautiful Creatures.”
Cooper is repped by CAA.
