Adam Sandler has enlisted a seriously impressive cast to work on his upcoming Netflix film, Hubie Halloween.
As part of an ongoing distribution partnership with the online streaming service, the 52-year-old actor and filmmaker has gathered together some of the biggest names in comedy for the seasonal ensemble movie.
With Adam playing the lead role of Hubie Dubois, a Salem-based Halloween obsessive who is forced to solve a murder case, as well as writing the screenplay, the actor enlisted plenty of his famous friends to work on the project.
Deadline reported that Adam’s long-term collaborators Kevin James and legendary actor Steve Buscemi will star in the movie, with Wine Country’s Maya Rudolph and Modern Family’s Julie Bowen also joining the cast.
Elsewhere, Saturday Night Live cast members Kenan Thompson and Melissa Villaseñor will be pitching in.
Filming began this week in Boston, Massachusetts, with residents seeing entire rows of houses decked out in Halloween decorations.
Hubie Halloween is the sixth film in Adam’s continuing deal with Netflix, having recently produced comedies including The Do-Over, The Ridiculous 6 and The Week Of for the platform.
However, it was Murder Mystery, his most recent film starring Jennifer Aniston, which has proved to be the biggest success in the collaboration.
Reuniting Adam and Jennifer for the first time since 2011’s Just Go With It, Murder Mystery was an unexpected hit for Netflix.
The comedy, which follows a married couple who become embroiled in a murder investigation, was viewed by more than 31 million accounts in its first three days, breaking Netflix’s opening weekend record.
In the following four weeks, more than 73 million households worldwide were said to have watched the Murder Mystery, with fans loving the film (even if the critics were less keen…)
