Adam Sandler and Netflix continue their relationship with the announcement of the new movie Hustle, which will be directed by We the Animals’ Jeremiah Zagar and produced by none other than the NBA’s LeBron James.
In the upcoming film, Sandler will play a recently fired basketball scout who finds a player abroad, with the hopes of making it in the NBA, according to Variety. The film is written by Taylor Materne (NBA 2K20) and Will Fetters (A Star is Born).
In 2014, Sandler partnered with Netflix, and in 2017, he made another deal to make four more movies with the streaming service. This past January, Sandler extended that deal to make four more movies. There will be a steady steam of Sandler movies coming, like last year’s massive success Murder Mystery.
Additionally, Sandler has already been attached to another Netflix movie, Dan Pan. The film will be penned by Tonight Show writer Rebecca Drysdale. Not much else is known about the film currently, and it is unclear if this is part of Sandler’s new deal with the streaming service giant.
