People in usually reliable What’s on Netflix have a nice rundown of what we know so far about the next Safdie Brothers movie with Adam Sandler.
Most of the details they mention are already known, but there are a few new things hidden in the track that should definitely be noted.
First, they state how Benicio Del Toro is or was once looked at for a role in the upcoming film. Interestingly, Del Toro was also supposed to play Howard (Sandler’s role) in “Uncut Gems.”
The second thing to note is that the movie takes place in the world of baseball card collecting during in the 1990s. We didn’t know about the decade it was filmed in, so this will be what you might call a ‘period piece’, a first for The Safdies.
The as-yet-untitled film is set to hit theaters on April 3, produced by Netflix.
Ever since ‘Good Time’ and ‘Uncut Gems’, the Safdie Brothers have become one of the most interesting filmmakers working today.
Back in October, I had some information that the duo were filming their next movie with Adam Sandler this winter. Then, in an interview with Vanity fair, Sandler has confirmed that this mysterious new Safdie movie will shoot in “late winter.
Sandler reported to THR a few months ago when the script, which seems to be evolving on a daily basis, is currently 340 pages.
