Netflix has released the first trailer for the next Adam Sandler movie, Sandy Wexler.
Sandler plays the character Sandy Wexler, a talent manager who represents actors “on the fringes of show business” in 1990s Los Angeles. We’re not exactly sure what the story is, but the official plot synopsis says he falls in love with a client, Courtney Clarke (Jennifer Hudson). This relationship challenges “his single-minded devotion” to his career. Check out the trailer below.
Sandy Wexler premieres on Netflix on April 14. It also stars Kevin James (King of Queens), Terry Crews (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Lamorne Morris (New Girl), Nick Swardson (Grandma’s Boy), Rob Schneider (50 First Dates), and Carl Weathers (Predator). It was directed by Steve Brill, who also directed Sandler’s last Netflix movie, The Do-Over, as well as other Sandler films such as Mr. Deeds and Little Nicky.
In 2014, Sandler signed a four-movie deal with Netflix. The first two, The Ridiculous Six and The Do-Over, premiered in 2016. The Ridiculous Six was reportedly a huge hit, picking up more views during its first 30 days than any other Netflix movie ever. The fourth Sandler movie has not been announced.
