Adam Sandler’s ‘Hubie Halloween’ Has Fans Wondering if He’s Getting Revenge for His ‘Uncut Gems’ Oscar Snub

After his dramatic turn in Uncut Gems, Adam Sandler is returning to his comedy roots. Netflix shared a first look at Sandler’s upcoming movie, Hubie Halloween, and it’s about as far from a Safdie Brothers project as you can get. Sandler stars in the Halloween-themed comedy as Hubie Dubois, a deli worker who finds himself solving a murder mystery.

“Despite his devotion to his hometown of Salem, Massachusetts (and its legendary Halloween celebration), Hubie Dubois is a figure of mockery for kids and adults alike. But this year, something really is going bump in the night, and it’s up to Hubie to save Halloween,” reads the film’s official Netflix description.

Sandler may be the star of his new project, but it’s also packed with plenty of famous actors and comedians. Saturday Night Live alumni Tim Meadows, Maya Rudolph and Colin Quinn appear with current SNL performers Kenan Thompson, Mikey Day and Melissa Villaseñor. Other Hubie Halloween stars include Modern Family‘s Julie Bowen, Stranger Things‘ Noah Schnapp, and Sandler favorites Steve Buscemi and Rob Schneider.

The timing of the film has fans thinking Sandler is carrying out his promise to make the worst film ever after his Uncut Gems Oscar loss. Last year, Sandler vowed he would create a truly awful film if he didn’t take home an Academy Award for his Howard Ratner performance. And sure enough, he wasn’t even nominated for Best Actor at the Oscars. “If I don’t get it, I’m going to fucking come back and do one again that is so bad on purpose just to make you all pay,” he said. “That’s how I get them.”

When the first look images and news of the film were released today, fans speculated that Hubie Halloween very much could be Sandler’s Uncut Gems revenge film.

But, a quick investigation into Hubie Halloween‘s filming schedule disproves any theories that this is Sandler’s big revenge. According to Boston.com, the actor wrapped up filming the Halloween comedy in Massachusetts in August of 2019, long before the Oscar nominations were announced — or even before Uncut Gems was released in theaters. So, that can only mean one thing: even is Hubie Halloween is truly bad, we have something much worse coming our way.

Hubie Halloween hits Netflix Oct. 7. Check out the first look images below.
