People questioned Netflix when they made a huge deal with Adam Sandler in 2014, but it proved to be successful for both parties.
It was so successful that Netflix made another four-movie deal with him in 2017.
Now in 2020, they’re extending the contract once again. Sandler and his Happy Madison Productions will produce (at least) four more films for Netflix.
The streamer announced the deal Friday, noting that Sandler’s ‘Murder Mystery’ was the most popular title on Netflix in the U.S. last year. ‘Murder Mystery,’ which co-starred Jennifer Aniston, was Sandler’s sixth Netflix movie.
Netflix claims members have spent two billion hours watching Sandler’s films since 2015. I have no idea how they came up with that number, but it does sound pretty impressive.
Sandler’s next film being released on Netflix will be Hubie Halloween, which also stars Kevin James, Shaquille O’Neal, Maya Rudolph and Ray Liotta, ’cause why not?
No word on an exact release date, but it’ll hit the streaming service sometime this year.[mashshare]
