Keri Russell is in negotiations to star opposite Adam Sandler in the family comedy Bedtime Stories.

The Matt Lopez-scripted Bedtime features Sandler as a harried real estate developer whose life is turned upside down when the lavish bedtime stories he tells his niece and nephew begin to come true.

Russell would play Sandler's potential love interest.

Adam Shankman is directing the feature for Disney.

Russell stars in the current release August Rush and received strong notices earlier this year for her performance in the indie comedy-drama Waitress.
