When it comes to life, I have terrible taste in everything. My blood is comprised of mostly Tabasco sauce and that brown substance that covers KFC Dunked Wings. I wear Croc shoes, and I listen to music that is technically classified as a hate crime against humanity. But worst of all, I kind of dig Adam Sandelr movies, no matter how terrible they are. The comedian is a mostly bankable star, no matter how awful his films are, and he’s headed to Netflix with a four-movie deal, produced by his company Happy Madison Productions.
Sandler’s first flick on the streaming service will be Ridiculous 6 according to The Wrap. A western film, Ridiculous 6 will feature one hell of a cast that includes Nick Nolte, Blake Shelton, Whitney Cummings, Steve Buscemi, Rob Schneider, Dan Aykroyd, Will Forte, Nick Swardson, Terry Crews, Jon Lovitz,Vanilla Ice, Luke Wilson, Steve Zahn, Danny Trejo, Chris Parnell, Lavell Crawford and a sentient piece of wood that the industry refers to as Taylor Lautner.
Written by Sandler and Tim Herlihy, the movie starts shooting next month once a director has been found. I’m kind of hopeful that the deal with Netflix will result in Sandler films that stick closer to what made the actor so popular in the first place. Films such as Happy Gilmore, The Wedding Singer and Bulletproof all had some of that early Sandler charm. Maybe this Netflix deal can recapture that magic.
