Adam Sandler is often wronged. Although the former «Saturday Night Live» star has become well-known and wealthy mainly because of his countless comedies such as «Billy Madison», «A Wedding to Fall in Love with», «The Rage Test» or «50 First Dates», his work has much more to offer to offer. The best example of this is probably » The Black Diamond «, in which Adam Sandler gave a sensational performance as a competitive jeweler and once again proved to doubters that he is one hell of an actor.
Since «The Black Diamond» is for us the best Netflix production ever and received a full 5 out of 5 stars in the official FILMSTARTS review , hopes for the next collaboration between the streaming service and Adam Sandler are of course correspondingly high. With the sports drama “ Hustle ”, this is now almost at the door, because the film will be available on Netflix on June 8, 2022.
This is «Hustle» with Adam Sandler
Basketball scout Stanley Beren (Adam Sandler) is unlucky and appears to be past his prime in the sports business. But then suddenly some hope comes back into his life: When he discovers an extremely promising basketball player in Spain, he persuades him to come to the USA with him.
Without permission or consultation with those responsible on the higher floors, he lets the newcomer onto the field. Against all odds, Beren wants to prove that his instinct for special talents still works. From now on, together with his new player, he will do everything to have a say in the NBA again.
«Hustle»: A Love Letter to the Sport by Adam Sandler
Adam Sandler produced «Hustle» with LeBron James , probably the best-known active basketball star. Several NBA professionals also take part in the film itself, while well-known actors such as Ben Foster , Robert Duvall and Queen Latifah also take part.
For Adam Sandler, «Hustle» is also a very personal project, because the actor is a huge basketball fan. What is known is that Sandler can still be found on public basketball courts in Los Angeles — and that at the present age beyond 50. There are therefore countless pictures and stories on the Internet of people who engaged in intensive competitions with Adam Sandler delivered to the court.
So it remains to be seen whether Netflix and Adam Sandler will deliver the next masterpiece with «Hustle». If you prefer to see the trailer in the original English, you can do so here:
