Adam Sandler’s latest collaboration with Netflix sees him return to drama in Hustle, following his acclaimed turn in 2019’s Uncut Gems.
Netflix has launched the first trailer for Hustle, its upcoming basketball drama starring Adam Sandler. Hustle marks the actor’s welcome return to drama following the rave reviews 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.
The story behind Hustle is a 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’ Jeremiah Zagar directed the movie which will arrive on Netflix on June 10th. You can check out the short trailer below.
