Netflix has given Adam Sandler’s next film the greenlight, reuniting the actor with Uncut Gems directors Benny and Josh Safdie.
According to Deadline, the untitled Safdie brothers project is “likely set in the world of high-end card collecting,” with Sandler starring again.
Netflix has not provided specifics on timing but aims to begin filming in the second quarter of 2023 as the script wraps up.
The Uncut Gems director duo last teamed up with Sandler in 2019 for their jewelry heist thriller, but that hasn’t stopped chatter around another project reuniting the three.
Earlier this year, Indiewire reported another project was already in the works, and Sandler later confirmed he was working with the Safdies to Entertainment Weekly.
While Sandler’s grimy New York comedy drew fan attention for his unusually serious performance, the actor has remained busy as part of his Netflix agreement.
In 2014, Sandler and the streaming service announced the beginnings of their partnership in an exclusive four-movie deal. The collaboration led to films like The Ridiculous 6, Murder Mystery, and his most recent role in the Netflix Original, Hustle.
