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 is titled, Hustle. He is playing a has-been basketball scout. While working in China, he discovers a phenomenal player and wants to use this as his chance to get back to being the once-loved scout he was for the NBA. The film is produced by Adam Sandler and Lebron James.
Some other names attached to the project include Queen Latifah, Ben Foster, Robert Duvall, and Maria Botto. The trailer was released in February 2022, with an expected release date coming up on 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.
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 pre-production, with stars such as Carey Mulligan and Kunal Nayyar 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.
