Adam Sandler will be collaborating with filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie once more, with plans for a shoot in ‘late winter’.

Adam Sandler continues to be a busy guy. Having just completed shooting on his next comedy for Netflix, You Are SO Not Invited To My Bat Mitzvah!, the actor is already lining up his next project. In an announcement that is sure to go down well, it has been revealed that Sandler will be reuniting with the Safdie Brothers, the filmmakers behind Uncut Gems, the ragged-edge drama that fascinated audiences when it released in 2019.

Sandler recently told Vanity Fair that “I’m going to do a movie with the Safdie brothers, and we’re supposed to start in the late winter, right. So part of my brain right now is like, I’m on tour. Then once that Safdie brothers movie starts – and I love those guys, I know we’re going to dedicate ourselves into working our asses off and making sure it’s as good as it can be, and I know that takes a lot of time.”

Plot details for the film are currently under wraps.

It’s also not yet known who will be backing the project. Whilst here in the UK, we got Uncut Gems on Netflix like almost every Adam Sandler movie of recent years, A24 was the main force behind the film and it distributed the film in the US. Netflix acquired international rights, but it is as yet unclear who is backing this new project. We’ll bring you more details on this one as we hear it.
