Hollywood star, Adam Sandler is heading for Mallorca this August, to shoot some scenes for the Netflix film ‘Hustle’.
The movie tells the story of a washed-up basketball scout (Adam Sandler) who discovers a talented new player, (Canarian NBA player, Juancho Hernangómez), when he’s on holiday in China. Without the approval of his team, he decides to take him back to America to prove that they both belong in the NBA.

When he was just 17, his brother encouraged him to become a stand up comedian and when comedian Dennis Miller saw his act he recommended him to ‘Saturday Night Live’ who hired him as a writer in 1990.
Over the years, the Hollywood actor and comedian has starred in many, many movies, including ‘A Great Dad’, ’50 First Dates’, ‘The Wedding Singer’ and ‘Rough Diamonds’.
‘Hustle’ is Directed by Jeremiah Zagar and produced by Sandler and NBA megastar, LeBron James through SpringHill Entertainment. Some scenes for the film have already been shot in Philadelphia in the US.
Canarian NBA player Juancho Hernangómez is making his acting debut in ‘Hustle’ alongside Hollywood heavyweights, Queen Latifah, Robert Duvall and of course, Adam Sandler.
