CANNES, France (AP) — It's a long way from May in France to February in Los Angeles, but the Cannes Film Festival has often been a breeding ground for Oscar campaigns.

As part of a previous four-movie deal, Sandler has already produced and starred in two films for Netflix.

Widely shared stories about celebrities experiencing car trouble and being helped out by local residents are false.
Several stories in recent weeks mention actors including Bill Murray, Adam Sandler and Will Ferrell having broken-down cars and getting aid from good Samaritans in small and medium-sized towns across the country.
