Hustle stars Adam Sandler (Uncut Gems), Queen Latifah (Chicago), Robert Duvall (The Judge), and Ben Foster (Hell or High Water), NBA player Juancho Hernangomez, Jordan Hull (The L Word: Generation Q), Maria Botto (Mad Dogs), Ainhoa Pillet, and sports commentator Kenny Smith.
“In the film, after discovering a once-in-a-lifetime player with a rocky past abroad, a down on his luck basketball scout takes it upon himself to bring the phenom to the States without his team’s approval,” reads the synopsis. “Against the odds, they have one final shot to prove they have what it takes to make it in the NBA.”
Hustle is directed by Jeremiah Zagar (We the Animals). It is produced by Sandler through his Happy Madison banner, and Roth/Kirschenbaum Films, along with LeBron James and Maverick Carter for SpringHill Entertainment.
