Adam Sandler’s next Netflix feature, following “comedies” The Ridiculous 6 and The Do-Over, is on the way.
Sandler goes his caricature route in Sandy Wexler, which tells the story of a talent manager working in 90s Los Angeles. His devotion to his clients and career is put to the test when he falls for his new client (Jennifer Hudson), a singer he discovers at an amusement park.
It’s a little hard to tell which angle the film will be taking, but it looks like a cross between a run-of-the-mill comedy and a mockumentary, with a number of Sandler’s real-life celebrity buddies making guest appearances. There’s not too much more to be said, if you’re a huge Sandler fan, you’ll likely be pleased knowing this is on the way. Everyone else, well, yeah.
Helmed by Steven Brill, who’s directed Sandler in Little Nicky, Mr. Deeds and The Do-Over.
Sandy Wexler will hit Netflix on April 14.
