ADAM SANDLER To Star In New Basketball Movie Produced By LEBRON JAMES
Variety has reported that Adam Sandler is starring in the basketball-themed film Hustle which will be produced by NBA superstar LeBron James and directed by Jeremiah Zagar.
According to the report, the story follows "an American basketball scout (played by Sandler) who, after being unjustly fired, discovers a talented player abroad and decides to bring him to the U.S. to prove that they both have what it takes to make it in the NBA."
LeBron's company Springhill Entertainment with business partner Maverick Carter will produce the movie with the veteran actor's Happy Madison and Roth/Kirschenbaum Films.
Sandler recently co-starred with NBA star Kevin Garnett in the movie Uncut Gems.
