Adam Sandler aficionados will be quite excited with this news, while others may have a word or two for Netflix’s advisors.
Netflix have announced that they ‘will be the exclusive home of four feature films starring and produced by comic icon Adam Sandler.
So, why the deal? Sandler pictures are apparently some of the most watched films on Netflix.
“People love Adam’s films on Netflix and often watch them again and again,” said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos. “His appeal spans across viewers of all ages — everybody has a favourite movie, everyone has a favourite line — not just in the US but all over the world.”
The collaboration will see Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions working alongside Netflix in the development of four films that are to premiere exclusively to Netflix members.
Adam Sandler’s obviously happy:
“When these fine people came to me with an offer to make four movies for them, I immediately said yes for one reason and one reason only….Netflix rhymes with Wet Chicks,” said Sandler. “Let the streaming begin!!!!”
