The Grown Ups cast was a star-studded ensemble that we may never see together in this franchise again. Grown Ups (2010) and the sequel, Grown Ups 2 (2013) is an American comedy series directed by Dennis Dugan and co-produced by Adam Sandler – who also starred in the film. Although the IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes ratings left much to be desired (11% and 8% respectively) both movies were highly rated by the Google community (86% and 85% respectively). There has been speculation of the release of the 3rd movie of the series but given the last release was almost ten years ago and that it appears Adam Sandler fans would be more interested in a continuation of the more popular Happy Gilmore or Billy Madison series, it is not likely.
Nevertheless, this all-star cast, with a combined net worth of upwards of $810 million, would undoubtedly make headlines if put together for a sequel. Continue reading to get more detail and individual net worth info on the entire Grown Ups cast starring Kevin James, Chris Rock, Tim Meadows, David Spade, Salma Hayek, Maria Bello, Maya Rudolph, Steve Buscemi, Rob Schneider, and Nick Swardson.

Will The Grown Ups Cast Return For Round 3?
Recently, Grown Ups 3 was a big discussion among every fan of this comedy series. But since one of its actors, Adam Sendler, came out and called the Grown Ups 3 an ‘undelightful gem’, fans should probably not get their hopes up. But as nothing’s been officially confirmed by the producers and other cast members, who knows?
The Bottom Line
Both Grown Ups and Grown Ups 2 were comedic masterpieces that grossed $271 million and $247 million, respectively. And as many people have become true fans, it would be a shame not to see this series continue. Although Grown Ups 2 was nominated 9 times in the 2014 ‘Golden Raspberry Awards’ (a parody award show honoring the worst of cinematic failures), numbers don’t lie as the budget was only $80 million – effectively netting $167 million.
