Disney Channel’s Bella Thorne Stuck With Adam Sandler & Drew Barrymore In ‘Blended’

EXCLUSIVE: Disney Channel star Bella Thorne has joined the Adam Sandler-Drew Barrymore comedy Blended. The Warner Bros rom-com revolves around the parties to a particularly lousy blind date who — each with their kids from a previous marriage — find themselves stuck together in a resort for families. Despite everything they can do to resist, the attraction grows between the two, and their kids benefit from the burgeoning relationship. Thorne, repped by WME, KLWGN, and Hirsch Wallerstein Hayum Matlof & Fishman, will play Sandler’s daughter. Blended is set to open May 23, 2014. Sandler’s Happy Madison and Mike Karz’s Gulfstream Pictures will produce, and Frank Coraci is aboard to direct.

Thorne stars on the hit teen sitcom Shake It Up, which is in its third season on Disney Channel. The 15-year-old also is signed to Disney’s Hollywood Records and has a three-book deal with Random House.
