Get ready to meet a Hollywood icon.
Netflix just announced the release of it's latest Adam Sandler film, Sandy Wexler. The throwback comedy will be available for streaming on April 14th.
Starring Sandler as Wexler, a super dedicated talent manager who represents a coterie of odd clients in good old 1994. If you liked how The Wedding Singer threw back to the 80's, you'll love Sandy Wexler's tribute to the days before iPhones.
The film will feature many Happy Madison favorites, including Terry Crews, Nick Swardson, and Kevin James. New to the Sandler crew is Jennifer Hudson, starring as Courtney, a client Wexler discovers while singing at an amusement park. Sandy knew he'd love the client's voice, but didn't realize he'd be falling for her, too.
The rest of the cast is equally amazing featuring Lamorne Morris, Rob Schneider, Jane Seymour, Aaron Neville, and Arsenio Hall. Sandler wrote the Steven Brill-directed script, along with Paul Sado and Dan Bulla.
Thus far the Adam Sandler/Netflix combo has been cranking out big hits for the streaming site. Ridiculous 6 and The Do-Over both did extremely well and we're excited to see the next film in Sandler's four picture deal.
Sandy Wexler marks the 6th collaboration between Terry Crews and Adam Sandler. They worked together on Sandler's first Netflix project Ridiculous 6 where Terry Crews made his Western debut and found out he loved horses.
Terry co-starred in the Adam Sandler remake of The Longest Yard, where he could put his pro football skills to good use. His character's love of McDonald's was probably a much bigger stretch.
Terry and Adam go back all the way to 2006, where Terry doubled up on Sandler movies by appearing in The Benchwarmers and Click.
Though Sandy Wexler is sure to bring another hilarious Crews character, our favorite might have to be Terry in Blended. Maybe it's the wig or his ever changing colorful suits, we wish Terry and his band pop up in every film.
So, April 14th, get ready to take a trip back to the year of the Tanya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan scandal, blocky expensive cell phones, and I Swear by All-4-One being at the top of the charts.
Though the teaser trailer doesn't give us a ton of info on the film, it's sure to be a great satire of Hollywood with some throwback 90s fun. And obviously, Terry Crews will be hilarious.
