Netflix has just signed a new deal with former “Saturday Night Live” cast member turned movie star Adam Sandler. The AP reports that the streaming service has signed on to make four more feature films with Sandler.
“As part of a previous four-movie deal, Sandler has already produced and starred in two films for Netflix,” the story reports. “While neither ‘Ridiculous 6’ nor ‘The Do-Over’ received anything close to good reviews, Netflix said Friday they are the biggest film releases for the service. Sandler’s next Netflix film, ‘Sandy Wexler,’ debuts April 14.”
The report notes: “To date, the majority of Netflix original films have been smaller dramas or documentaries. But some of its most ambitious and priciest acquisitions are due out this year, including ‘War Machine’ with Brad Pitt and ‘Bright’ with Will Smith.”
