Adam Sandler is set to star in “Uncut Gems”, the next film from the Safdie brothers. Plot details for the film are being kept under wraps but the feature is set in New York's diamond district, as per Hollywood Reporter.
For the feature, the Safdies are re-teaming with A24, which distributed their last film, the Robert Pattinson-starring “Good Time”. Scott Rudin and Eli Bush are producing with Elara Pictures' Sebastian Bear-McClard and Oscar Boyson. Martin Scorsese is executive producing the feature, along with Emma Tillinger Koskoff.
Sandler was last seen in Noah Baumbach's “The Meyerowitz Stories” and will next be seen in the Netflix comedy “The Week Of”, opposite Chris Rock. Last week, it was announced that he and Jennifer Aniston will co-star in a comedic whodunit for Netflix.
