Adam Sandler is working on a new Halloween comedy for Netflix. The holiday movie includes an all-star cast, featuring Sandler, Kevin James, Julie Bowen, Maya Rudolph, Ray Liotta, Steve Buscemi, Rob Schneider, Michael Chiklis, Kenan Thompson, China Anne McClain, Paris Berelc, Tim Meadows, Colin Quinn, June Squibb, Shaquille ‘O’Neal, Karan Brar, Noah Schnapp, Mikey Day, Melissa Villaseñor, Kym Whitl0ey, Lavell Crawford, Betsy Sodaro, George Wallace, and Blake Clark.
Steve Brill is directing the project for Netflix, working from a script written by Tim Herlihy and Adam Sandler, with Happy Madison Productions producing.
Netflix’s official logline for the movie reads, “Despite his devotion to his hometown of Salem, Massachusetts (and its legendary Halloween celebration), Hubie Dubois is a figure of mockery for kids and adults alike. But this year, something really is going bump in the night, and ‘it’s up to Hubie to save Halloween.”
The company stopped short of announcing a premiere date for the new movie, but sometime in October seems like a safe bet at this point.
Netflix also announced that “The Chosen One: Season 2” is scheduled to premiere in September. Cast members Paloma Bernardi, Renan Tenca, Gutto Szuster, Pedro Caetano, Alli Willow, Tuna Dwek, Lourinelson Vladmir, Francisco Gaspar, Kiko Vianello, Aury Porto, and Mariano Mattos Martins are reprising their roles for the second season. Giselle Itié also joins the original cast for this season.
Michel Tikhomiroff is returning to direct the series, with João Daniel Tikhomiroff also serving as executive producer. Netflix stated that season two includes 6, 45-minute episodes.
Netflix described season two adding, “Lúcia and Enzo manage to escape from Aguazul, but two questions remain: how is the Chosen One capable of healing people and what happened to Damião? Willing to do anything in order to experience the glory that the answer can bring, Enzo forces Lucia to return to the village and revive her worst nightmares. At the same time, the Chosen One reveals himself to the world, initiating what may be the end of Aguazul or a new path for humanity.”
