We didn’t see that coming for sure!
Grammy award winning Girls Trip star Queen Latifah and 50 First Dates’ Adam Sandler are teaming up with Oscar winner Robert Duvall in Netflix’s Hustle.
The basketball feature directed by Jeremiah Zagar will see, Sandler who earlier this year extended his production deal with the streamer, produce under Happy Madison banner, with LeBron James’ The SpringHill Company and Roth/Kirschenbaum Films.
Starring in the upcoming feature are NBA player Juancho Hernangomez, Jordan Hull (The L Word: Generation Q), Maria Botto ( Mad Dogs), Ainhoa Pillet, and sports commentator Kenny Smith, Deadline reports. Taylor Materne and Oscar nominee Will Fetters penned the screenplay.
Sandler stars as a down on his luck basketball scout who discovers a once-in-a-lifetime player with a rocky past abroad and takes it upon himself to bring the phenom to the States without his team’s approval. Against the odds, they have one final shot to prove they have what it takes to make it in the NBA.
