Hustle: Plot & Cast!
The synopsis of the movie reads, “After discovering a once-in-a-lifetime player with a rocky past abroad, a down on his luck basketball scout (Adam Sandler) takes it upon himself to bring the phenomenon to the States without his team’s approval. Moreover, against the odds, they have one final shot to prove they have what it takes to make it in the NBA.”
Behind the camera, Hustle is a team-up between two very different worlds: sports video games and Oscar contenders. The drama is co-written by Will Fetters, one of the scribes behind A Star Is Born, and Taylor Materne, who penned NBA 2K19 and 2K20. Filmmaker Jeremiah Zagar directs with Adam Sandler producing as part of Happy Madison’s overall deal with Netflix alongside producer LeBron James.
Sandler marks his ninth Netflix starring role with Hustle, in which he plays the rule-breaking scout. Real-life Spanish NBA basketball player Juancho Hernangomez brings his skills to the screen as a fictional baller. Queen Latifah, Robert Duvall, Ben Foster, Jordan Hull, Ainhoa Pillet, María Botto and former NBA player (and current sportscaster) Kenny Smith round out the Hustle team.
Hustle might be a sports drama, but it still has some room for romance. We can see Sandler and Queen Latifah as an on-screen married couple.
