Netflix has just dropped the trailer for Hustle, a film on a basketball rooky from Spain trying to reach the National Basketball Association with the help of a tough-love talent scout.
Starring Spanish NBA star for the Utah Jazz Juancho Hernangomez as a young player from Spain with a rocky past and Adam Sandler as a rough-around-the-edges coach and talent scout who will work hard with the rooky to have a chance at making it to the National Basketball Association league. Adam Sandler brings the young talent from Spain over to the States without his team’s permission because he believes he has found a once-in-a-lifetime phenomenal player.
The Spaniard won’t be the only professional NBA player in the film as Anthony Edwards from the Minnesota Timberwolves and Tobias Harris from the Philadelphia 76ers will be present as well. The basketball players will be accompanied by some of Hollywood’s best such as Queen Latifah, Heidi Gardner, Robert Duvall, Ben Foster, and Raul Castillo. Produced by LeBron James and Adam Sandler himself the movie is truly a love letter to the sport, the dedication, and hard work young men and women have to put in to become professional basketball players.
Jeremiah Zagar will direct the NBA star-studded film that will be available on Netflix on June 10th.
