Fans of Adam Sandler, rejoice! The actor recently appeared in the drama film “Hustle,” but he’s ready to return to the big screen as he’s reportedly starring in a new film.
According to Deadline, the “Just Go With It” star will once again collaborate with Josh and Benny Safdie on a yet-to-be-titled Netflix film.
The streaming giant has not revealed any details about the project, but sources close to the production say the writers are still polishing the script and hope to begin filming in the second quarter of 2023.
Sandler had previously collaborated with the siblings on the successful A24 film “Uncut Gems,” which starred Julia Fox, LaKeith Lee Stanfield, Idina Menzel, and many others.
Since the film’s success, the actor and producer brothers have discussed a follow-up project.
The Safdie brothers will reportedly write, direct, and produce the upcoming film.
The plot, details, release date, and other details have not been made public in this writing, but insiders have confirmed that it will revolve around the world of high-end card collections.
According to Hunger TV, Adam Sandler was not nominated for an Oscar for his work in “Uncut Gems.” His character, Howard Rattner, is a troubled jeweler in the story.
The film was A24’s highest-grossing film at the time, grossing a whopping $50 million at the box office, but it was dethroned by “Everything, Everywhere, All at Once,” starring Michelle Yeoh.
Sandler praised Josh and Benny Safdie for their hard work, stating that their “work ethic is bananas.”
He previously stated regarding their next project following “Uncut Gems”:
“They’re always working, always writing, always thinking. I don’t know what I can tell you, but it’s gonna be very exciting. It’s different.”
The Safdie brothers previously collaborated with Robert Pattinson on the film “Good Time,” which received positive reviews from critics, indicating that they have a good track record based on their previous work.
Sandler, on the other hand, has grossed a whopping $2 billion at the box office from his previous projects, which include over 30 films.
