Netflix, the worlds leading Internet TV network, will be the exclusive home of four feature films starring and produced by comic icon Adam Sandler, whose movies have delighted hundreds of millions of fans all over the world.
Sandler is a unique and prolific comic voice, whose films have grossed more than $3 billion globally at the box office and made him one of the worlds top movie stars. He is among the few actors in the world whose films consistently rank among the most viewed by Netflix members in the U.S. and across its global territories from Brazil to the U.K.
People love Adams films on Netflix and often watch them again and again. His appeal spans across viewers of all ages -- everybody has a favorite movie, everyone has a favorite line -- not just in the US but all over the world, said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos.
When these fine people came to me with an offer to make four movies for them, I immediately said yes for one reason and one reason only - Netflix rhymes with Wet Chicks, said Sandler. Let the streaming begin!!!!
Under the deal announced today, Sandlers Happy Madison Productions will work alongside Netflix to develop the four films and to premiere them exclusively to members in the nearly 50 countries where Netflix operates. Current studio film commitments are not included in this deal.
