New York — Netflix is doubling down on Adam Sandler. The streaming giant has extended its deal with the comedian for four more feature films.

As part of a previous four-movie deal, Sandler has already produced and starred in two films for Netflix. While neither Ridiculous 6 nor The Do-Over received anything close to good reviews, Netflix said on Friday they are the biggest film releases for the service. Sandler's next Netflix film, Sandy Wexler, debuts on 14 April.

Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said Sandler's films have proven "extremely successful" with Netflix subscribers.

To date, the majority of Netflix original films have been smaller dramas or documentaries. But some of its most ambitious and priciest acquisitions are due out this year, including War Machine with Brad Pitt and Bright with Will Smith.
