Queen Latifah, Robert Duvall, Ben Foster and Juancho Hernangómez join Adam Sandler in Hustle, the actor's new Netflix project.
In 2014 Netflix I sign a contract with the producer of Adam Sandler, Happy Madison. Under this agreement, renewed in 2017, the actor has released six movies on the platform. Which include Criminals at Sea Y The Ridiculous 6. The contract has proven to be a win for both parties. On the one hand, Netflix secures content for their platform, which they also know will attract the public's attention. On the other hand, Adam Sandler has almost complete creative freedom to develop the films he wants. Not surprisingly, Netflix again extended the contract in January 2020. The platform asked four more movies and Sandler is already underway.

In Hustle Adam Sandler plays a professional basketball scout, unfairly fired. The reason for the dismissal is to try to sign a player from outside the United States. Despite xenophobic attacks, Sandler will do his best to introduce the player and show that everyone deserves a chance to play in the NBA.
Along with Sandler, the basketball legend joins the production Lebron James. The player is sure to be able to guide production through the ins and outs of professional basketball in the United States. James' production company will work with Sandler, Roth Films Y Kirschenbaum Production. Jeremiah zagar, known for his work on We The Animals (2018), will direct the project. The script comes from the hand of Taylor Materne, writer of the basketball video games NBA 2k19 and 2k20, and the Oscar nominee for best screenplay adapted by A Star is Born Will Fetters.
It is also unknown when Hustle will be released. The film is already being shot and it does not appear that production will slow down. So it is more than likely that it will reach Netflix during the first half of 2021. After Hustle, Adam Sandler will have to produce another film to complete the deal and it is rumored to be a superhero comedy. It is very likely that the platform decides renew it for the third time. Do you think we will continue to watch Adam Sandler movies on Netflix or is it possible that the actor will be turned off?
