Adam Sandler is a Talent Scout in Basketball Drama 'Hustle' Trailer
"I love this game, I LIVE this game! There's a thousand other guys waiting in the wings who are obsessed with this game." Netflix has unveiled a teaser trailer for a new basketball drama titled Hustle, arriving on Netflix this June during the summer. This is the next film directed by talented indie filmmaker Jeremiah Zagar, who made a mark at Sundance with his film We the Animals. In this one, Adam Sandler stars as a down on his luck basketball scout who discovers this once-in-a-lifetime player on the streets of Barcelona in Catalonia/Spain. He brings him to the US to join the team, but without their approval, trying to build him up so he can make it into the NBA. The ensemble cast has Queen Latifah, Ben Foster, Kenny Smith, Ainhoa Pillet, Raul Castillo, and Robert Duvall. Plus Juancho Hernangomez as the Spanish player, a real life basketball star who currently plays for the Utah Jazz. So far so good, this actually looks intriguing.
Here's the first teaser trailer for Jeremiah Zagar's Hustle, direct from Netflix's YouTube:
