Adam Sandler's Netflix Halloween Movie to Star Maya Rudolph, Ray Liotta, More
Netflix and Adam Sandler are at it again, and they have a treat for us.
The comedian is working on an untitled Halloween movie, and once again, he'll be joined by some well-known actors. Netflix revealed the project and its all-star cast Monday, and the list of stars includes Maya Rudolph, Ray Liotta, Kenan Thompson, Kevin James, Julie Bowen, and more.
Sandler wrote the screenplay with Tim Herlihy, and it centers on Hubie Dubois, a man who is devoted to his hometown of Salem, Massachusetts, and the local Halloween celebration. Although he happens to be mocked by both kids and adults, he'll get a chance to be a hero. With something "going bump in the night," Hubie will have to save Halloween.
The cast also includes Steve Buscemi, Rob Schneider, Michael Chiklis, China Anne McClain, Paris Berelc, Tim Meadows, Colin Quinn, June Squibb, Shaquille O’Neal, Karan Brar, Noah Schnapp, Mikey Day, Melissa Villaseñor, Kym Whitley, Lavell Crawford, Betsy Sodaro, George Wallace, and Blake Clark. They join a long list of big names who have co-starred with Sandler. He recently starred with Jennifer Aniston, Luke Evans, and Gemma Arterton in Netflix's "Murder Mystery," which premiered in June.
Steve Brill will direct the upcoming Halloween flick. It comes from Happy Madison Productions. A release date hasn't been announced yet, but we suspect it'll arrive around Halloween 2020, given the theme and the fact that Sandler's Netflix movies have been coming roughly every year since 2015.
