Adam Sandler has lined up his next Netflix movie. The “Uncut Gems” actor will star in “Hustle” as a basketball scout who responds to being unfairly fired by bringing a foreign hoops phenom to the U.S. to prove they’ve both got the game to make it in the NBA. Jeremy Zagar will direct. LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s SpringHill Entertainment are producing the picture.

The movie falls under the four-picture deal that Sandler and his Happy Madison productions have with Netflix. Next up is the already-shot comedy “Hubie Halloween,” which is expected in October.
