If you’re not convinced that Netflix is (slowly) taking over the world, try these two words on for size: Adam Sandler.

The New York Times is reporting that the actor and streaming giant have signed a mega deal for four new feature films.

Netflix will finance the films and work with Sandler’s production company, Happy Madison Productions, with the first feature set to arrive as early as 2015.

“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,” the actor said in a statement to the Times. “Let the streaming begin!”

The announcement comes on the heels of Netflix’s other big movie deal. Earlier this week, The Weinstein Company confirmed plans to release the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragonsequel on both Netflix and select Imax theaters.

Sandler can next be seen in Jason Reitman’s drama Men, Women & Children.
