Happy Madison just got four times happier. In a recent deal reported by Deadline, Adam Sandler and Netflix have contractually agreed to four new movies.
Following the success of 2019’s Murder Mystery, starring Sandler and Jennifer Aniston, this collaboration comes as no surprise.
Sandler started working with Netflix back in 2015 with The Ridiculous 6 (a play on words satirizing Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful 8), and Sandler has since released numerous films with Netflix, grabbing more than two billion hours of subscribers watching his content alone.
Some of Sandler’s previous films with Netflix include The Do-Over, Sandy Wexler, The Week Of, and his own stand-up special (his first in twenty-two years). However, before his Netflix years, many of us already knew him from his hit comedies in the nineties and his incredible work on SNL.
“Whether you know him as Sandman, the Water Boy, Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, Nick Spitz or simply Adam, one thing is clear: our members can’t get enough of him,” said Ted Sarandos, the chief content officer for Netflix. “They love his stories and his humor, as we saw with Murder Mystery. So I could not be more excited to extend our partnership with Adam and the Happy Madison team and deliver more laughs around the world.”
Sandler currently has two projects in the works: a family film named Hubie Halloween (alongside Kevin James and Maya Rudolph, to name a few stars), as well as an untitled animated feature film he plans on writing, producing, and starring in.
The SNL alumni isn’t doing too bad outside of Netflix, either. Sandler earned all kinds of attention for his stellar performance in Uncut Gems—a must see, by the way—and was even named Best Actor by the National Board of Review.
