Adam Sandler In Agreement With Netflix To Produce Four New Films
The Adam Sandler-Netflix partnership was just extended! So far, Sandler's Happy Madison Productions has made eight films for Netflix. They today announced four more to come from Sandler.
After eight films in a span of six years, Adam Sandler has signed on to produce another four for Netflix! Sandler has appeared in most of the films, including The Ridiculous 6 and the popular Murder Mystery, along with Jennifer Aniston, from 2019.
Netflix reported that viewers have watched over 2 billion hours of Sandler's films on their service! With those numbers, it comes as little surprise that Sandler and the streaming service will be back with more films.
Two billion hours of Adam Sandler!
Ya'll watched 2 billion — yes *billion* — hours of Sandler on Netflix. Now the Sandman is making four more movies at Netflix.— Netflix Film (@NetflixFilm) January 31, 2020
A busy few years for Adam Sandler
In addition to his recent Netflix productions, Sandler has also appeared in The Meyerowitz Stories (a film from Marriage Story director Noah Baumbach) and Uncut Gems from this past year.
There was a notable campaign to get Sandler nominated for an Oscar for his performance as an eccentric jeweller in Uncut Gems. Sandler even threatened to purposely make a terrible film if he didn't receive recognition from the Academy.
No Oscar nomination for Sandler
The Academy unfortunately overlooked Sandler's performance in Uncut Gems, so it remains to be seen if he will follow through with his threat! For what it's worth, he did get an Emmy nomination for his Netflix comedy special 100% Fresh.
Regardless, fans can rest assured that many more hours of Sandler films will be hitting Netflix in coming years.
Uncut Gems, directed by the Safdie brothers, also began streaming today on Netflix. Check out Sandler's dramatic acting turn in the film!
