Adam Sandler saddles up as Tommy, a.k.a. White Knife, in the first full trailer for Netflix’s “The Ridiculous 6,” which centers around a goofy gang of multicultural brothers.
Frank Coraci (“The Wedding Singer”) is directing from a script that Tim Herlihy co-wrote with Sandler, who is producing along with Allen Covert. Happy Madison’s Heather Parry and Barry Bernardi are executive producing the film, which will debut exclusively on Netflix in all territories.
“Ridiculous 6” was previously set up at both Sony and Paramount before the project moved to Netflix once Sandler signed a lucrative deal to produce four movies for the streaming company. The production pact was announced in October of last year.
The film has courted controversy in the past. As TheWrap previously reported, a dozen or so Native American actors walked off the set of Sandler’s movie in April, because they felt the film — described as a satirical take on Westerns like “The Magificent Seven” — grossly misrepresented the Apache culture it depicts, particularly with regard to women and elders of the tribe.
