by Jerome Hudson24 Mar 20170 The new deal is an extension of the four-picture deal Sandler signed with Netflix in 2014.
The new deal, same as the first, will see the A-lister starring in each film, with his Happy Madison Productions producing each project for exclusive streaming on Netflix.
“Adam Sandler one of the leading comedians in the film world, and his movies have proven to be extremely successful with our subscribers around the world,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix Chief Content Officer “We are thrilled at the opportunity to extend our partnership with Adam and his entire team at Happy Madison and keep the world laughing.” Sandler’s first for Netflix, 2015’s The Ridiculous 6, was heavily panned by critics but was one of the streaming giant’s most watched films ever.
Netflix’s other history-making film was the 2016 follow-up The Do-Over, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The comedy movie stars Judd Apatow, Jennifer Hudson, Kevin James, Terry Crews, Lamorne Morris, Nick Swardson and Rob Schneider.
