Hustle will be directed by “We the Animals” director Jeremiah Zagar. According to Variety the script was penned by Taylor Materne and Will Fetters. “Sandler plays an American basketball scout 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.
Legendary originally landed the pitch from Materne, Roth/Kirschenbaum and Springhill in 2018. Netflix acquired the rights from Legendary and quickly pitched it to Sandler as a starring vehicle. Fetters did a polish on the script. Zagar’s recent attachment led Sandler to sign on, putting the film in prime position as his next movie. It is still unknown when production will get underway as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rattle the world.”
