Adam Sandler’s First Netflix Film will be RIDICULOUS 6; Huge Cast Announced

Posted on January 26, 2015 at 3:56 pm by David "Snackbar" Edmundson


Back when it was announced that Adam Sandler had signed a four picture deal with Netflix, there was a lot of misplaced schadenfreude (thanks Amanda).  On the face of it, a lot of people were happily interpreting this whole thing as a career blow for Sandler when it’s likely anything but.  Netflix is a very smart company and it’s not like Sandler and his posse work for scale so the likelihood is that whatever metrics Netflix is looking at indicate that the money they stand to gain from this outweighs the rather large above-the-line costs for these comedies.

With that out of the way, the first movie out of the gate looks to be called Ridiculous 6.  Per The Wrap, it was previously set up at Sony and Paramount.  It’s a Western and the cast includes Taylor Lautner, Nick Nolte, Blake Shelton, Whitney Cummings, Steve Buscemi, Rob Schneider, Dan Aykroyd, Will Forte, Nick Swardson, Terry Crews, Jon Lovitz,Vanilla Ice, Luke Wilson, Steve Zahn, Danny Trejo, Chris Parnell and Lavell Crawford set to appear.  The movie was written by Sandler and frequent collaborator Tim Herlihy, with a director announcement coming soon.  It starts shooting next month.
