Adam Sandler signs new movie deal with Netflix
Adam Sandler and Netflix won’t be parting ways anytime soon.
Netflix has agreed to finance the production of four more Sandler films, all of which will be produced by Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions and premiere exclusively on the streaming platform. In a statement, Netflix described The Ridiculous Six and The Do-Over as “the biggest film releases for the service,” though Netflix has still not made its internal viewership numbers available.
The third movie on Sandler’s original four-film deal will be Sandy Wexler. While his previous Netflix films mixed Sandler’s slapstick style with the Western and action genres, Sandy Wexler will be a straight romantic comedy set in Los Angeles during the ’90s. In addition to Sandler, it stars Jennifer Hudson, Kevin James, Terry Crews, Lamorne Morris, Nick Swardson, and more.
Sandy Wexler is set to hit Netflix April 14, with five more films to come in the following years.
