Adam Sandlers new western, “The Ridiculous Six” is in production in New Mexico
The new film has a serious all star cast which of course also includes Adam Sandler. According to a recent report, the Netflix feature is supposed to include comedian Whitney Cummings, Steve Buscemi, Rob Schneider, Dan Aykroyd, Nick Nolte, “The Voice” judge Blake Shelton, Will Forte, Nick Swardson, Terry Crews, Jon Lovitz and Vanilla Ice. The Wrap also reports that we can expect to see Luke Wilson, Steve Zahn, Danny Trejo, “Saturday Night Live” alum Chris Parnell and Lavell Crawford of the hit “Breaking Bad“.
According to the movie / entertainment news site Cinemablend, Warner Bros had considered the project but ended up passing it up as did Sony before it. Netflix has now picked up the film and this will be first Netflix production for Adam Sandler. Also according to the Wrap, “ The Ridiculous Six” is a spin on Westerns such as the “The Magnificent Seven.” Adam Sandler will play man a man who grew up among Indians, Lautner, Schneider, Wilson and Crews will all be playing Adam’s half brothers. Nick Nolte is cast to play Sandler’s long lost father and comedian Whitney Cummings will play the overly flirtatious step mother. Danny Trejo is cast as a gang leader, surely a rough and tough one as are most of his characters and Steve Buscemi plays a local, jack of all trades type of man. The film is being produced by Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions.
