Adam Sandler & Netflix Have Agreed To A Four Movie Deal – Whoopitydo!
Sandman – Adam Sandler is bringing his brand of adolescent humor to Netflix.
The streaming media content giant announced a four-movie deal with the iconic comic actor Thursday, signaling Netflix’s continued appetite for original programming after the runaway success of series “House of Cards” and “Orange is the New Black.”
The four feature films will star and be produced by the Brooklyn-born Sandler, 48, whose quirky style set him apart on “Saturday Night Live.” The “Happy Gilmore” star has 51 acting credits, including recent summer fare “Blended” and “Grown Ups 2.” His films have grossed $3.9 million worldwide.
Don’t be so tough on yourself, Adam. In all seriousness this is pretty cool news. Adam Sandler is the man behind most of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen. Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, Waterboy, The Wedding Singer, Big Daddy, Just Go With It. He’s mailed in some stinkers over the years, but when you act in movies for 3 decades you’re going to have some bombs. Let’s hope this deal with Netflix brings out the good, psychotic funny Sandler and not whatever the hell happened with Jack and Jill and That’s My Boy.
