Adam Sandler's Netflix deal
Sandler made a deal with Netflix back in 2014 that he would produce 6 movies for them over the next 6 years. He created one film per year to add to their streaming service. In 2020, that deal was renewed and he made a new agreement for another four years and 4 films.
The first film in Sandler's new Netflix deal was titled, Hustle. He played a basketball scout with a dream of being an NBA coach. While traveling, he discovered a phenomenal player that he wanted the rest of his team to meet, but things went awry. He ended up coaching the young man so he could be a better pick for the NBA draft. The film was produced by Adam Sandler and Lebron James and featured several actual NBA players. It was a worthwhile watch, in my opinion.
Some other names attached to the project included Queen Latifah, Ben Foster, Robert Duvall, and Maria Botto. The trailer was released in February 2022, with a release date of June 10, 2022.
Murder Mystery 2 (2022/23)
Murder Mystery premiered in 2019 to rave reviews. Lots of households watched and enjoyed the film that starred Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston. Fans were hoping Netflix would want a sequel. Aniston posted a photo of the two together on February 7th, 2022 to her Instagram stating "Back to work with my buddy. #MurderMystery2." Before mid April, she had posted again that filming had wrapped. I'd expect to see it on our screens by late 2022 or early 2023. Stay tuned for more details.
The third Netflix film of the deal hasn't been finalized yet, but it's so far said to be an adaptation of a novel. A sci-fi book titled, The Spaceman of Bohemia, is the current contender. The Sandman will become the Spaceman, I guess?
The book depicts an orphaned boy who wants to become his country's first astronaut.
IMDB says this film is in post-production status, with stars such as Carey Mulligan, Kunal Nayyar, and Paul Dano attached.
Netflix film 4 (2024)
This one is far off, so there's no news about what the film will include at this time. I will continue to update as I learn more and see what new character Sandler is bringing to your streaming screen.
Apparently, Sandler has talked about the possibility of bringing all of his characters together in a Sandlerverse film. He may decide to make a movie that puts all (or most) of his quirky characters together in some hilarious way. It would definitely be fun to see how Billy Madison, Jack and Jill, Little Nicky, and the Waterboy interact with one another. But we'll see if this rumor comes true.
