Netflix Brought Adam Sandler to Tucson, Maybe

Adam Sandler is transitioning into the wonderful world of Netflix-exclusive film making, and the cast for his first movie—a western—was released today. Not much has been released in the way of plot for the film, "Ridiculous 6," but it looks like the goal is to go with a comedic take on “The Magnificent Seven.” Sandler has a sister that lives in Tucson, so that's probably what he's doing here, but The Wrap says production on the new movie will start in February, so maybe he wanted to check out our famous cowboy vibe ahead of filming.

A ton of people were announced as cast members (Taylor Lautner, Blake Shelton, Nick Nolte, Whitney Cummings, Steve Buscemi, Rob Schneider, Dan Aykroyd, Will Forte, Nick Swardson, Terry Crews, Luke Wilson, Danny Trejo, Chris Parnell,  Lavell Crawford, Jon Lovitz), but all of that is overshadowed by the announcement that Vanilla Ice will, apparently, be playing Mark Twain?
