Adam Sandler's Ridiculous 6 star studded cast

2015-01-28 20:00

Los Angeles - Taylor Lautner, Dan Aykroyd, Terry Crews and Nick Nolte will all feature in Adam Sandler's Ridiculous 6.

The comedian's Happy Madison production company recently signed a multi-film agreement with Netflix and he's recruited a stellar cast to appear in the first movie, which also includes Whitney Cummings, Luke Wilson, Steve Buscemi, Danny Trejo and Nick Swardson.

Ridiculous 6, a parody of Western film The Magnificent Seven - sees Sandler cast in the role of an orphan who has grown up on a Native American reservation, with Rob Schneider starring alongside Lautner, Wilson and Crews as one of his half-brothers.

The film will also include cameo appearances from Blake Shelton as Old West sheriff Wyatt Earp and Vanilla Ice as Mark Twain, according to TheWrap.

Ridiculous 6 will be the first of four films that will only be available to view via Netflix and Drew Barrymore - who starred alongside Sandler in The Wedding Singer in 1998, 50 First Dates in 2004 and Blended in 2014 - has already said she hopes to work with him again.

Check out the trailer for Blended:

She explained: When we did 50 First Dates, I was so confused about love but he was about to marry Jackie [Sandler]. I was like, how do you make a relationship work and stay?

"When we did The Wedding Singer, we were such young kids with barely a care in the world, there was that joy.

"So it will be interesting to see what our next film together will be. Parenting teenagers next, I think."
