Little is known about the potential story, although the title is reminiscent of Steve McQueen's "The Magnificent Seven", which told the story of a group of men who protect a town in Mexico.
The movie is planned for a spring 2014 release, and no other stars are yet known for the project, reports contactmusic.com.
Sandler has seen a number of movie misfires in the last year, including the aforementioned "Jack and Jill", in which he plays a pair of siblings alongside Katie Holmes.
The 46-year-old will next be seen in "Grown Ups 2", reprising the role of Lenny Feder.
