Now that Adam Sandler is done messing with the Zohan, he can start messing with the zombies.

He's decided to branch off his production company Happy Madison with a separate division called Scary Madison, which will develop horror flicks.

Per the Hollywood Reporter, the first project the shingle will produce is a thriller called Shortcut, following two brothers who stumble on a shortcut into their new town and, unfortunately for them, learn why it's so rarely used.

Sandler and partner Jack Giarraputo will executive-produce the film, which will be helmed by Nicholaus Goosen (Grandma's Boy) and star newcomers Andrew Seeley, Shannon Woodward and Dave Franco. The script was penned by Adam's brother, Scott Sandler.

Sandler's latest comic caper, You Don't Mess With the Zohan, in which he stars as a Mossad agent turned New York hairstylist, opens today in theaters across the country.
