Adam Sandler, the US comedian best known for his light comedy roles, may join the cast of a war film currently being penned by that other motormouth Quentin Tarantino. The Pulp Fiction director is writing a part in the film, which is described as a mixture of spaghetti western and World War II actioner, specially for Sandler. Speaking at a pre-Oscar party thrown by Miramax Films, Tarantino told the Daily Mail the project is intended as an homage to The Dirty Dozen. The director–sporting a cowboy tie and boots with his black tuxedo–said the 1967 film, starring Lee Marvin and Telly Savalas, is: “going to be my template, just as Reservoir Dogs was my heist film nod to the Killers.” Quentin added: “I’ve got a bunch of guys fighting the Nazis, and there’s a part for Adam Sandler, and I hope he’ll be crazy enough to do it.”
