Hustle is set to start streaming on Netflix on June 10, 2022, and will be available on the Netflix app and at Netflix.com.

Sandler's relationship with Netflix dates back to 2014, when the actor-comedian signed a four-movie deal with the streamer, according to Variety.

The four-movie deal yielded several films, including The Ridiculous 6, The Do-Over, Sandy Wexler, and The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected). Sandler eventually extended his deal, with several new films including The Week Of, Murder Mystery, and Hubie Halloween, as well 100% Fresh, his 2018 musical comedy special.

The movie tells the story of a former basketball scout Stanley Beren (Sandler) that is down on his luck, who while abroad, discovers once-in-a-lifetime star athlete Bo Cruz (Juancho Hernangómez) -- with a similar rocky past -- on the streetball courts of Spain.

Without his team's approval, Beren decided to bring the diamond in the rough player back to the U.S. with him, hopefully giving them both one last shot to prove they are NBA-worthy.

"Whether you know him as Sandman, the Water Boy, Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, Nick Spitz, or simply Adam, one thing is clear: our members can't get enough of him," said Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos in a statement released by Netflix at the time. "They love his stories and his humor, as we saw with Murder Mystery. So I could not be more excited to extend our partnership with Adam and the Happy Madison team and deliver more laughs around the world."
