Adam Sandler to star in LeBron James-produced Netflix movie ‘Hustle’
Adam Sandler drew rave reviews for his performance in “Uncut Gems,” which used NBA playoff games as a backdrop and also starred soon-to-be Hall of Famer Kevin Garnett. Now, Sandler is set to play a lead role in another basketball-themed movie, and he’ll once again be working with an NBA legend.
Jeff Sneider of Collider reported on Monday that Sandler has signed on to star in “Hustle,” which is an upcoming Netflix movie that is produced by LeBron James and longtime business partner Maverick Carter. Sandler will play a basketball scout who is fired after discovering a talented player overseas. The scout brings the player to America to prove they can both make it in the NBA.
Collider has more details on the plot of the film.
Sandler is a huge basketball fan who has his own basketball court called Happy Madison Square Gardens. He also has some serious skills on the court, which should make him great for another basketball-related role.
