Adam Sandler Netflix Films

After making a huge splash in the television scene, Netflix is now looking to dominate in movies. The popular streaming site is turning to actor Adam Sandler to make it happen. The comedic actor has signed a four-movie deal, which he will star in and produce. The first film could even be released as early as next year!

According to Netflix, he’s one of the few actors who films are ranked the most-viewed consistently by U.S. subscribers.

“People love Adam’s films on Netflix and often watch them again and again,” Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement. “His appeal spans across viewers of all ages — everybody has a favorite movie, everyone has a favorite line — not just in the U.S. but all over the world.”

In true Sandler fashion, he took to Twitter and Instagram where he joked about trying to sign up for Netflix and instead signed a deal to make four movies.

When Netflix first approached him with the amazing offer, he couldn’t help but say yes immediately… mostly for one reason. “Netflix rhymes with Wet Chicks,” Sandler said in a statement. “Let the streaming begin!!!!”

Sandler’s Happy Madison productions will develop the four films with Netflix, and fans could begin streaming sometime in 2015, according to reports on Variety.

While you’re waiting to see what type of movies Sandler releases for Netflix, the company announced earlier in the week that its original film, “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend” will be released both on Netflix and in select IMAX theaters on August 28, 2015.
