Show business sometimes makes for some strange pairings, as Blake Shelton is finding out. The country star has apparently signed on to appear in a new comedy Western starring Adam Sandler.

The ‘Lonely Tonight‘ singer and coach on ‘The Voice‘ is said to be set for ‘Ridiculous 6,’ which will give a comedic twist to ensemble Westerns like ‘The Magnificent Seven,’ according to the Wrap.

The eclectic all-star cast will also include Taylor Lautner, Nick Nolte, Steve Buscemi, Rob Schneider, Jon Lovitz, Dan Akroyd, Vanilla Ice, Luke Wilson, Steve Zahn, Danny Trejo, Chris Parnell and Lavell Crawford from ‘Breaking Bad.’

Sandler wrote the screenplay with longtime collaborator Tim Herlihy as the first of four original films he will produce as part of a groundbreaking new deal between his Happy Madison production company and Netflix. Shooting is slated to begin in February. It is unclear what role Shelton will play in the film.
