According to Variety, Netflix and Adam Sandler have come to an agreement on what their next film will be.
Variety adds that the next Sandler-starring-project on the slate will be called Hustle, and it’ll be directed by We the Animals’ Jeremiah Zager.
As for the production companies behind the film, those are also especially noteworthy considering Sandler’s Happy Madison will team up with LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s SpringHill Entertainment. Roth/Kirschenbaum Films will also serve as producers.
Variety reports that the film’s premise will be about an American basketball scout (played by Sandler) who gets “unjustly fired.”
After that sudden career jolt he “discovers a talented player abroad” and then decides to bring him back to the states for the purpose of proving that both he and the player are worthy of the NBA.
