Adam Sandler extends deal with Netflix for four more movies
Netflix has extended its deal with Adam Sandler (Uncut Gems) and Happy Madison Productions to make four additional movies following the success of Sandler and Jennifer Aniston’s Murder Mystery comedy, Deadline has confirmed.
“Whether you know him as Sandman, the Water Boy, Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, Nick Spitz or simply Adam, one thing is clear: our members can’t get enough of him,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer. “They love his stories and his humor, as we saw with Murder Mystery. So I could not be more excited to extend our partnership with Adam and the Happy Madison team and deliver more laughs around the world.”
Sandler and the streamer have also previously collaborated on 2015’s The Ridiculous 6, The Do-Over, Sandy Wexler, and The Week Of. The actor and comedian also released his first stand-up special in 22 on Netflix. Happy Madison Productions also produced Father of the Year as well as the upcoming The Wrong Missy.
Sandler is set to star in the family film Hubie Halloween alongside Kevin James, Julie Bowen, Ray Liotta, Maya Rudolph, Rob Schneider, Kenan Thompson, Steve Buscemi, Michael Chiklis, Tim Meadows, Noah Schnapp, Paris Berelc, China Anne McClain, and Shaquille O’Neal.
The movie follows Hubie Dubois who, despite his devotion to his hometown of Salem, MA (and its legendary Halloween celebration), is a figure of mockery for kids and adults alike. But this year, something really is going bump in the night, and it’s up to Hubie to save Halloween.
Adding to his slate, Sandler has an untitled animated feature film coming up that he is set to star in, write, and produce.
