Los Angeles: Actor Adam Sandler has signed a deal to make four feature films with streaming service Netflix.

Sandler's Happy Madison Productions will work alongside Netflix in developing the yet-to-be announced titles, which will premiere exclusively in the nearly 50 countries where Netflix operates, said The Hollywood Reporter.

The 48-year-old actor will both star in and produce the Netflix projects.

"When these fine people came to me with an offer to make four movies for them, I immediately said yes for one reason and one reason only... Netflix rhymes with Wet Chicks. Let the streaming begin!!" Sandler said in a statement.

Netflix is reportedly prepared to spend as much as the major studios do for a Sandler film, which, on average, costs in the USD 80 million range.

"People love Adam's films on Netflix and often watch them again and again. His appeal spans across viewers of all ages, everybody has a favorite movie, everyone has a favorite line, not just in the Us but all over the world," said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos.
