By God, they’re basically making a movie out of Adam Sandler’s “Lunch Lady Land,” although he’s not associated with it at all. Amy Poehler is set to star in Lunch Lady, based on a children’s graphic novel written by Jarrett Krosoczka. Accoding to THR, the book “centers on a mild-mannered school cafeteria server who secretly dishes out helpings of justice as she and her assistant investigate wrongdoings. The books also feature three kids who try to figure out her double life.”

Serves out helpings of justice? THR: You’ve outdone yourself.

It’s a series of books, the first of which is set to be released this fall. Sarah Haskins and Emily Halpern are adapting the work for the screen.

Meh. I’ve heard worse ideas, though I never pegged Poehler as a lunch lady. Maybe Will Arnett can play janitor. In any respect, it gives us a chance to revisit a time when we still adored Adam Sandler. Give it up:
