Ready for another Adam Sandler movie adventure? Netflix’s got you covered with Hustle.
Fresh off the heels of his 2020 comedy horror Hubie Halloween, this new Happy Madison production is apparently going to be less silly and more serious than the veteran comedian’s last Netflix Original. Or at least, it seems that way from Netflix’s recently released first look. But we’ll get to that in a minute.
After all, this is Adam Sandler we’re talking about, so you never know how things might pan out. But according to CinemaBlend, Hustle looks like a more “dramatic” flick, in part thanks to its heavy-hitting and star-studded cast. Along with the Uncut Gems star, Queen Latifah, Oscar-winning actor Robert Duvall, and Ben Foster have all signed on.
Netflix has officially shared the first photos from Hustle, which you can see below.
Jeremiah Zagar, known for films like the 2018 coming-of-age drama We the Animals, will be directing this one. So what’s it about, you ask?
Here’s everything we know so far about Adam Sandler’s upcoming Netflix film, Hustle.
As Deadline reports, Adam Sandler stars as a washed-up basketball scout who’s luck seemingly starts looking up when he discovers a hidden gem of a basketball player in China.
From that moment forward, he begins setting his sights on a chance at the NBA for both of them, no matter what it takes. When they make it back to America, Sandler’s character knows his prodigy will only have one real shot to make it in the big leagues.
Since it’s also a chance (and maybe his last) to resurrect his career as a basketball scout, there’s more at stake than meets the eye.
Juancho Hernangomez of the real-life NBA and sports commentator Kenny Smith have also signed on to bring the cast of Sandler’s latest movie to life and also, add some authenticity to the premise. Serious film or not, it looks like Adam Sandler is taking this one more seriously than Hubbie Halloween!
It’s not been announced just yet when Hustle will drop on Netflix, but we’ll be sure to let you know the instant we find out. So stay tuned!
