Adam Sandler and LeBron James are making a basketball movie together for Netflix. The film is called Hustle and Sandler will also star, Variety reports.

The film will follow an American basketball scout who is wrongly terminated after finding a gifted foreign player. Sandler's character brings the player to the U.S. to prove they can both make it in the NBA.

Hustle will be helmed by indie breakout director Jeremiah Zagar, whose 2018 coming-of-age drama We the Animals blew audiences away at Sundance. According to reports, it was Zagar’s recent attachment to the film that led Sandler to sign on.

Hustle will be produced by Sandler's Happy Madison, Roth/Kirschenbaum Films, and James' and Maverick Carter's SpringHill Entertainment. This year, Netflix extended its deal with Sandler and Happy Madison to make four more movies. Meanwhile, James will star in the 2021 sequel to Space Jam, Space Jam: A New Legacy.
