LOS ANGELES (AP) – Expect more Adam Sandler in your Netflix feed.
The streaming giant announced Friday that Sandler and his Happy Madison Productions have reached a new deal with Netflix to make four more films. Heâ€™s had five films with the studio along with the stand-up special â€œAdam Sandler: 100% Fresh.â€
Netflix leader Ted Sarandos said the company is excited to extend its partnership with Sandler, because audiences â€œlove his stories and his humor.â€ The company said his 2019 comedy â€œMurder Mysteryâ€ starring him and Jennifer Aniston was the most popular film on Netflix in the U.S. last year and one of the most popular in eight other countries.
Sandlerâ€™s latest film â€œUncut Gems,â€ which was released in theaters last year to critical acclaim, will premiere on Netflix in May. Later this year, the actor will star in â€œHubie Halloweenâ€ with Kevin James, Julie Bowen and Maya Rudolph.
