Adam Sandler has pretty much been able to do whatever he wants at Netflix—with varying results. After an (allegedly) impressive showing for his film Murder Mystery, he’s set his next film: a comedy about Halloween.
Sandler and longtime collaborator Tim Herlihy wrote the script for the film, which is likely titled Hubie Halloween, though that hasn’t been confirmed. The bench is deep: Maya Rudolph, Steve Buscemi, Ray Liotta, Julie Bowen, Kenan Thompson, Noah Schnapp, Kevin James, Shaquille O’Neal, Colin Quinn, and many more are set to appear.
The film will follow Hubie Dubois (the most Sandler-y character name yet?), a Halloween-loving resident of Salem, Massachusetts, who must solve a murder and save Halloween. According to Netflix’s calculations, you’ll likely watch it.
The film is shooting in Salem, and will likely debut around Halloween.
