“They work hard for it,” Sandler said. “Their work ethic is bananas. They always work, they always write, they always think. I do not know what I can tell you, but it will be very exciting. It is different. But I never want them to say, “What the hell did you say to that?” So I will let them talk [about it]. »
Reunion comes shortly after its release Uncut gems in 2019, but it is not very strange. During his release Uncut gems, the Safdie Brothers talked about their love for Sandler, noting that the film was made about him at the time. Clearly, love and respect are now two-way, as Sandler is once again ready to dive into a role with the talented duo.
