Netflix has scored another big movie coup: Adam Sandler will star in four movies, made by his production company Happy Madison, that will debut exclusively on Netflix. In addition to no theatrical run, the films won't require a "studio middleman facilitating the deal," Entertainment Weekly reports. "When these fine people came to me with an offer to make four movies for them, I immediately said yes for one reason and one reason only: Netflix rhymes with Wet Chicks," Sandler said in a statement. Netflix was a bit more restrained: "People love Adam's films on Netflix and often watch them again and again. His appeal spans across viewers of all ages—everybody has a favorite movie, everyone has a favorite line." Netflix also announced recently that it snagged a big film sequel.
