Adam Sandler to save Halloween in new Netflix movie
Staff Reporter | On 23, Jul 2019Reading time: 1 mins
Adam Sandler will once again star in a Netflix movie this Halloween.
The film, which is currently untitled, is co-written by Sandler with longtime collaborator Tim Herlihy, who has written everything from The Ridiculous 6 and Pixels to Happy Gilmore and The Wedding Singer.
In front of the camera, Sandler leads a cast that includes Kevin James, Julie Bowen, Maya Rudolph, Ray Liotta, Steve Buscemi, Rob Schneider, Michael Chiklis, Kenan Thompson, Shaquille O’Neal and Noah Schnapp.
Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions will produce the movie, with Steve Brill (Little Nicky, Mr. Deeds) at the helm.
Sander plays Hubie Dubois, who lives in Salem, Massachusetts. Despite his devotion to his hometown (and its legendary Halloween celebration), Hubie is a figure of mockery for kids and adults alike. But this year, something really is going bump in the night, and it’s up to Hubie to save Halloween.
The announcement of the project follows the release of Sandler’s latest film, Murder Mystery, which has become the most-watched Netflix original movie within its first four weeks on the service.
