Adam Sandler’s latest collaboration with Netflix is Hustle, another dramatic role following his acclaimed turn in 2019’s Uncut Gems.
Netflix has launched the full trailer for Hustle, its upcoming basketball drama starring Adam Sandler.
Hustle marks the actor’s return to a dramatic role following the uniformly great reviews he received for 2019’s Uncut Gems, which also premiered on Netflix as part of Sandler’s long-term deal with the platform. Basketball superstar and movie producer LeBron James produces this film, alongside Sandler, with Jeremiah Zagar directing.
The story behind Hustle is a classic sporting rise to glory that we’ve seen many times over, following a washed-up mentor who searches for redemption with an unproven young hotshot. This time around, the former is a basketball scout played by Sandler, who ‘after discovering a once-in-a-lifetime player with a rocky past abroad, a down on his luck basketball scout 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.’
The rest of the cast is impressive too, with Queen Latifah, Ben Foster, Robert Duvall and Juan Hernangomez all co-starring. We Are The Animals meanwhile is already on the CV of director Zagar.
Hustle will arrive on Netflix on June 10th. You can check out the trailer below ahead of the film’s release next month.
