The Sandler comeback train chugs on with NBA movie now in his court

The Sandler comeback train chugs on with NBA movie now in his court

Another smooth move from Adam Sandler, following his bravura turn in last year’s “Uncut Gems”.

Per Variety, the freshly-oiled SNL alum will star in Jeremiah Zagar’s next “Hustle”, a Netflix offering about an American basketball scout who, after being unjustly fired, discovers a talented player abroad and decides to bring him to the U.S. to prove that they both have what it takes to make it in the NBA.

Yep, sounds a bit like Kevin Bacon vehicle “The Air Up There” – but the pedigree behind the camera suggest it might have a tad more meat on it’s bones.

In development for a couple of years, “Hustle” was panned by Taylor Maerne and Will Fetters. In addition to Happy Madison, Roth/Kirschenbaum Films, and Maverick Carter’s Springhill Entertainment, the producing committee on the film includes basketballer turned movie magnate LeBron James (“Space Jam 2”).
