Netflix to make four more films with Adam Sandler
MUMBAI: Internet TV network Netflix has extended its deal with Hollywood actor Adam Sandler and will commit to finance the development and production of four more feature length films starring the comedian.
Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions will produce each film, which will premiere exclusively to the leading internet entertainment network’s 93 million members worldwide.
Sandler’s films have grossed over $3 billion. In 2014, the multi-hyphenate actor, writer, producer and occasional singer-songwriter set his sights on conquering the streaming world and his films have found enormous success on Netflix. Sandler’s first two Netflix films, ‘The Ridiculous 6’ and ‘The Do-Over’, are the biggest film releases for the service.
With ‘Sandy Wexler’, Sandler returns to the genre that gave us ‘The Wedding Singer’ and ‘50 First Dates’. The film is a fun, feel-good romantic comedy set in Los Angeles in the 90s starring Jennifer Hudson, Kevin James, and Terry Crews.
“Adam Sandler is one of the leading comedians in the film world, and his movies have proven to be extremely successful with our subscribers around the world. We are thrilled at the opportunity to extend our partnership with Adam and his entire team at Happy Madison and keep the world laughing,” said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos.
“Love working with Netflix and collaborating with them. I love how passionate they are about making movies and getting them out there for the whole world to see. They’ve made me feel like family and I can’t thank them enough for their support,” said Sandler.
