Drew Barrymore wants to star opposite Adam Sandler in more films when their children are older

Drew Barrymore plans to make more films with Adam Sandler.

The 'Charlie's Angels' star first starred alongside the comedian in 1998 film 'The Wedding Singer' followed by '50 First Dates' in 2004 and is currently playing the mother of his children in 'Blended'.

She insists it would be fun to work with him again when their own children are teenagers.

The screen beauty told Red magazine: "When we did '50 First Dates', I was so confused about love but he was about to marry Jackie [Sandler]. I was like, how do you make a relationship work and stay?

"When we did 'The Wedding Singer', we were such young kids with barely a care in the world, there was that joy.

"So it will be interesting to see what our next film together will be. Parenting teenagers next, I think."

The 39-year-old - who has two daughters with her 'Friendly Fire' actor husband Will Kopelman - also hinted that father-of-two Adam could be looking to stray from the comedy genre that he is so well known for.

She added: "A musical would be really fun!"
