Adam Sandler – a.k.a. Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, The Waterboy, etc. – will be filming scenes for his new Netflix movie, Hustle, in Coatesville High School’s gymnasium, writes Sean Adams for the Harrisburg Patriot-News.
Shooting will start on Oct. 26 and will be wrapped up by Nov. 5. So far, the school has been operating remotely; however, students will begin attending in-person classes as part of a hybrid-model on Nov. 9.
For making the gymnasium available for production of the film, the school district will receive $81,170 and a new scoreboard.
Hustle is the latest in a line of Sandler films produced by Netflix as part of a multi-movie deal between the Saturday Night Live alum and the streaming service. The latest joint venture focuses on a basketball scout who brings a player from abroad to the United States.
The movie is being co-produced with NBA star LeBron James. It has already begun production and has been shooting at various locations in Philadelphia.
