The Hollywood star has had a good run over at the box office with movies like Grown Ups, Pixels, Click, Just Go With It, and more. So when he transitioned to a career on Netflix back in 2014, it paid off equally well for the actor. His latest project for Netflix, Hustle, is a basketball underdog story that is doing extremely well on the charts.
Starting out his career on Saturday Night Live in the 1990s, the actor has starred in almost 50 films since then. He has amassed quite a fortune from his film career, and yes the Netflix deal did contribute to his net worth. So how much is Adam Sandler worth currently?
Net Worth of Adam Sandler and the $250 million Netflix deal
Adam Sandler is currently worth $420 million! He is one of the most bankable stars in Hollywood. The actor easily demands a paycheck of $20 million per movie and also gets a cut from the gross profits. However, despite that, he’s still not the richest actor on the planet.
Realizing Sandler’s potential, Netflix signed a deal with the actor and his production house, Happy Madison Productions for $250 million in 2014. The actor brought his classic brand of comedy and family entertainers to the platform. The Ridiculous 6 was the first picture to come out of the deal. Soon after The Do-Over, Sandy Wexler, The Week Of, and Murder Mystery followed. Murder Mystery with Jennifer Aniston did exceedingly well. It was the most-watched film in 2019. Overall, even though Sandler’s movies didn’t get the best of reviews, they were still streamed for over 500 million hours. The deal proved lucrative for both the parties and they agreed to extend the deal in 2020.
Sandler’s more serious turn in Hustle
Hustle was a detour from his light-hearted comedic roles. The underrated dramatic actor again proved his acting chops in Hustle after Uncut Gems. He starred alongside Queen Latifah and Juancho Hernangómez in the inspiring sports drama. The film is getting good reviews and has a 92% score on Rotten Tomatoes.
