Adam Sandler is a fan of Drew Barrymore’s new talk show, wants to reunite on the big screen

Adam Sandler wants to make more movie magic with Drew Barrymore.

When asked if he would be open to the idea of filming another movie with his co-star of films such as “The Wedding Singer,” “Blended” and “50 First Dates,” the “SNL” alum said, “Of course.”

“Any time Drew wants to — she’s gotta tell me and then I’ll do it,” Sandler confided to Entertainment Tonight’s Lauren Zima during a recent interview. “But now she’s busy with that show. I love her on the show.”

The show he’s referencing is the newly launched, nationally syndicated daytime chatfest “The Drew Barrymore Show,” which delivered strong ratings during its premiere week earlier in September.

The 54-year-old funnyman is a fan of the CBS Television Distribution-produced talker that’s delivering state-of-the-art socially-distance production elements, human interest angles and in-depth celebrity interviews to the tried and true format.

“She’s cool [and] solid as rock, just like she is in real life… [She] just knows how to talk to you [and] make you say, ‘Hmmm, maybe I’ll discuss this with you.’ I always open up when I talk to Drew. She’s gonna do that with the whole world.”

The actress, author, movie producer, cosmetics mogul and lifestyle maven previously said she wanted to bring something different to the landscape.

“People are looking to have a different conversation. I think they are looking to — if they are putting themselves out there — I assume, to reveal things about them that are not commonly known,” the 45-year-old renaissance woman explained about her approach.

The “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” star continued: “I think it is really weird when people choose to do a profession, but you can’t know anything about me. It’s like, well, you took the wrong job, it is fair game. Most people want to present their heart and humor, the same thing on this show.”

Considered Hollywood royalty (her ancestry includes stage, screen and radio trailblazers John Barrymore and Ethel Barrymore), the former child star has been in showbusiness for about 40 years, starring in movies such as “Firestarter,” “Charlie’s Angels,” "and “Ever After: A Cinderella Story.”
